My deepest condolences to the Tekely family for this tremendous loss. May the words found at Isaiah 26:19 bring you comfort in knowing that you will one day see John again.

Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the morning, And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life"

Stacy, I am so deeply sorry for one the most difficult of life’s losses, losing your father. It is a difficult journey dealing with this grief. I hope you will talk to Dani. Please know that while the pain seems 24-7 that will change and lesson, even though It will always tug at your heart. Prayers for strength are being sent. Mrs V/Shar
