    I never knew your loved one, your husband, your father. I just wanted you to know I watched your remembrance video and I truly wish I had known him and your whole family. The video touched my heart and I realized part way thru I was crying. It was beautiful and I just wanted you all to know. God be with each of you. I will say a prayer for you tonight.
