“Dads can’t stay with us forever, we always have to part, but may the strength and love he showed live inside your heart.”
We heard the sad news of your father's death. We can't begin to imagine how painful it is for you. But take heart and be strong, please.
Your Dad was like a father to us. He was a man of wisdom and experience who would tell us when we were doing right or wrong. We all went to him for advice.
We send our love to your family and hope you find the strength to cope at this difficult time.
Nothing can prepare us to deal with the loss of our fathers. Take one day at a time. Mourn your loss.
If you ever need a shoulder, just know that I am always here for you.
I hope you come out stronger from this.
Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.
I’m sorry you’ve lost someone you and your family loved dearly.

I’m here for you.
My heart goes out to you in these troubled times.
A father is a son’s first best friend and a daughter’s first love and I clearly saw that in your relationships with him. He nurtured your feelings in ways a father should. Even with a strong personality, he was warm to us and made us feel like family.
I’ll miss his antics and efforts to make us laugh. Another bright smile is lost and the sadness resonates with us.
I am sending my love as you go through this. I know that with faith and courage you can find comfort and healing.
Words cannot begin to express the sadness I feel for you losing your father.
I know this is incredibly hard for you and your family, so I offer my deepest sympathies. Take this time to remember him, heal, and know that I’m here for you.
