    Dorothy, I was so very sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was a great father and mentor and raised such a beautiful family. Please know that he no longer suffers and is at peace. May God keep you close at heart with him and savor every good memory of him. God Bless you and your family. With Love, Aunt C, Uncle Mike and Katie xoxo

  3. Dorothy Germain says:

    You can shed tears that he is gone
    or you can smile because he has lived.

    You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back
    or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.

    Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
    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 him and only that he’s gone
    or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.

    You can cry and close your mind,
    be empty and turn your back
    or you can do what he’d want:
    smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

    I love you dad.
