Godly man who we loved much. You are in our prayers.

just hit her and she's missing him. I know she's going to be ok,
but I hope I was able to calm her more. Kelly: Beverly, tell Chey that it is ok to cry. It is ok
to miss someone. Please let her know that she is loved by many
people. GOD is right there for all of us. Dad certainly would've
have let her know that. He is at home now where he belongs. We
shall see him again one day..... Just like we will see your Dad.

lost. She calmed down and went to sleep.
