So sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. Losing a parent is one of the hardest things we will ever go through and having it occur right before the holidays is especially painful. Take comfort in your many memories; your Dad will live on in your heart.

I would like to extend my deepest sympathy in the loss of your dear loved one Dennis Martz. I hope you find the below Bible verse comforting during this time of sorrow.
