Apologies for finding this a week late... but know that my sincerest condolences are offered, as are my prayers for your father and for you and your family, Candlelight.
Mate, you were the fourth person to comment on my Facebook notification last week. You're not late at all.
So I was. Let me now apologize for my supremely short memory. Sometimes, my brain doesn't do the whole auto-connect between FB and here.
The sentiment, however, remains the same.
