I'm so sorry to hear of your father's passing. Your virtual tribute to him captures everything I remember him being; full of laughter and life. I remember visiting your home in the summer and Christmas time where great times were always to be had. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead, and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
