  5. Our hearts and sympathy go out to your family for your loss. We experienced the loss of a father figure this year (Dave\’s Uncle Ray) and understand your feelings. Al and your family will be in our prayers.

  6. Diane and I offer our sympathy to you and your family following the death of your father, Al. On this sort of occasion, there\’s little to be said that doesn\’t sound trite and clichd. Still, the death of one\’s parents is a significant life moment. Diane and I have both experienced the death of a parent. It makes clear that we have moved to the natural order\’s front rank. Some time ago, I happened upon a quotation extracted from a letter allegedly written by Benjamin Franklin to the daughter of his deceased brother, John, on the occasion of John\’s death. We like the sentiment and offer it you with hope. A man is not completely born until he is dead. Why then should we grieve that a new child is born among the immortals? We are spirits. That bodies should be lent us while they afford us pleasure, assist us in acquiring knowledge or in doing good to our fellow creatures is a kind of benevolent act of God. When they become unfit for these purposes, and afford us pain instead of pleasure, instead of an aid become an encumbrance and answer none of these intentions for which they were given, it is equally kind and benevolent that a way is provided by which we get rid of them. Death is that way. Again, in the sure and certain hope of the resurrection, our condolences to you and your family, Tony, Diane, & sons
