  4. Stephanie,
    We are so sad for you! While you know he is at peace, and this will comfort you in time, for now you know you must grieve and let the tears fall when they will. You have the sweet memories of your time with your father while he was with you here on this earth, a true gift, and this can never be taken from you. So he is never really gone as long as you remember him.
    Let your family and friends hold you up and give you the help you need right now. That is why God gave you so many in your life.
    We love you, dear cousin, and will be praying for you especially in the days and weeks to come.
