Dear Maria and Family,

I was saddened to hear of your father's passing. I know how much you loved and cared for him for such a long time. I'm certain that your dedication and devotion will bring you peace of mind and much needed rest.

He and your mother will be in your hearts forever.

Those we hold most dear never truly leave us.
