Kelsie, sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a parent is not an easy thing to do. I have lost a father and step father in the last 15 years. Keep your father alive in spirit by celebrating the good times, and even the bad times, that you shared together. My family and I pray that you and your loved ones can find peace during this tough time.
Kelly your talent and kindness will be missed by many
