I’m very sorry to hear of James’ passing. I pray you find happiness in the memories you have of your Dad and hope in the words of Revelations 21:4- “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
