I’m so sorry for your loss. I know he will be greatly missed. When I met him at the age of 15, he always treated me like a daughter. He was never my father-in-law, he was always “Dad”. When I moved on with my life we talked a few times over the years and he always gave the best advice. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family as you try to find your new normal with such a large piece of your hearts missing.
