My thoughts and prayers are with you and Jerry at this sad time in your lives. I didn't know your Dad personally,but I know you loved him dearly and will miss him being here with you. As your cousin and as a friend I'm here if there's anything I can do. He's in a far better place and most importantly he's at peace.

Love, your cousin
