Dear Mac: It is with sadness that I learned of the passing of your dad. I know from all the stories you've told me that he was a devoted family man and I greatly admire that trait. During this difficult time I would like to extend my condolences to you, your dear mom, to your three siblings, as well as the grandchildren. I have no doubt that your dad leaves a huge void in the family but, although he is resting peacefully now, he will also live on through you guys and all the wonderful memories he is a part of. God Bless you and your kin.
