Oh! I am so sorry for you and your family Karen. I remember back in the late 90's when we did the rosary group that met at your house and then we traveled to homes.  My children and I have fond memories of your dad.  Not sure if you ever realized but when we were at the rosary he would put a few bags of groceries in our station wagon while we were socializing.  My children, ages 2-7 at that time, remember looking forward to the cereal he would give.  
How generous he was, I feel blessed to have know him and he left a positive impression on my children. You are blessed!
Prayers are being said for your dad.

My family and I want to expressed our deepest sadness of his passing. But now he is in heaven with my dad and everybody else that we love, watching us and guiding us with our everyday lives. I have no doubt he is with GOD smiling and happy.
