I'm truly sorry for your loss. Dad's are special and are terribly missed. May the heartwarming promise Christs extends to our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death comfort you, John 11:11-14; 17-26. Although tears may come before words they don't go unnoticed. God(Psalm 83:18) sees your sadness and he promises to wipe them away, and swallow up death forever, Isaiah 25:8. May He continue to strengthen you for the days to come
