The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand.The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.The music stops, yet echoes on in sweet, soulful refrains.For every soul that passes, something beautiful remains. R.I.P. Papa Smurf, I will always love you.
So saddened to hear about your loss. May your dad memory stay alive in your hearts.
So sorry for your loss may God be with all the family at this time and the days to come.
