My Air Force son in law lost his father yesterday to the horror of cancer. We here at the Six household are grieving for another family member gone.
Son. Lu and I want you to know how much you mean to us and how hard we are taking the loss of your father. He was a good and fine man and he raised a great son. You are a good and fine man and in the end that is all a father can hope for. That his son becomes a man. I know you are grieving and sad at his passing. I wish we were there for you. We hope you can take heart at your memories and hold on to the things he taught you and the lessons every father hands down. I know you are not a believer but Lu and I are so we hope you will accept our prayers for you and your mother at this time. That goes for your siblings, DO and the kids as well. The loss of a parent is hard, so very hard. We understand that and we will be here for you if you should need us. With Mom's death just a few short months ago we do understand what you're going through. Not that such thoughts help. These are the times that try a man's soul but Lu and I know that you will pass this test as you have all others.
It's a tough way to start the new year. Let us all hope it's the last.
