Keith, we are so sorry for the loss of your Father! We know it had taken a lot out of you both mentally and Physically , but by the Grace of God we know his pain is over now. Healing will take time, but knowing God will always mend the missing pieces of our life here on earth is a comfort. If there is anything we can do for you, Brother Wade and Nick please let us know!
