    Dear Jill and Family,

    I am so sorry about the loss of your Dad, father-in-law and grandfather. It’s so hard to lose a parent and grandparent but just know he is now with your mom and grandmother and is in no pain. He can now watch over all of you along with your mom and grandmother. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
