Sending My Sympathy and Prayers, In Your Time of Sorrow. May God Keep Your Dad in Heaven.

I thought this was beautiful and
something to ponder on.
You can shed tears because they are
gone, or you can smile because they
lived. You can close your eyes and
pray they will come back, or you can
open your eyes and see all that they
left for you. Your heart can be empty
because you can't see them, or you can
be full of the love you shared. You can
turn your back on tomorrow and live
yesterday, or you can be happy for
tomorrow because of yesterday. You
can remember only that they are gone,
or you can cherish their memory and
let it live on. You can cry and close
your mind and feel empty,
or you can do what
they would want. Smile,
Open your heart, Love….
and go on.
