To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to puck up which is planted.

Your father has reached his season to return to the Father who so bleessed you with his presence.

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Who coforteth you in your time of loss. May the mercies of God provide you comfort at this time.

Our condolences
