Donna and family I am so very sorry about your loss even though I know we know it was not unexpected I also know from experience there was no possible way to prepare for this. My thoughts and prayers go out to you in the coming weeks, months and years without him. Love to you and Aunt Neva trying to cope through the next days ahead.
