Thank you Sir, I really appreciate your prayers.
I'm very sorry for your loss, please accept all my sympathy inneedofgrace, decidedly, 2012 hasn't been a good year, so many of us have been sadden by the lost of our loved Fathers.
Larry, thank you for such kind words, and yes, the circle of life continue, but we'll greatly miss the ones who brought us to life, my Father use to say to me "You may take my seat, but you'll never take my place", these words have such a full meaning now he's gone, you just realise how much everyone is unique, even when we're from the same blood, the "circle of life" continue, but each parts of this circle is unique... and, yes, everyone looks up to you, a very strange feeling indeed.
