A heartfelt thank you

I just wanted to take the time to thank you all for your emails, phone calls and comments. It means the world to me to know that you all care so much to take the time to send along your condolences. The past few days have been the darkest days of my life, but we have all made it through and the healing can now begin. My dad will be greatly missed by many people, and it is more than obvious in the amount of people that came to the wake and the funeral. He has touched many lives and will continue to live on in this community. I thought it would be harder than it is to talk about my dad, but surprisingly it's not. There was a line in a scripture read at dad's funeral that really hit home for me, and although I'm not a religious person, it really touched me. The line was

Being perfected in a short time, they fulfilled long years

This is probably the best way to describe my dad, and makes it a bit easier for me to understand why he died at such a young age. I could not have made it through the past week without my family, and I'm now convinced more than ever that I married the most amazing man in the world, next to my dad of course. :)
