I lost my dad to cancer on June 1,2010. My daughter's birthday was same day.In fact he died only a minute after my girls birth. I do know he is with Jesus.I told him over phone he could let go and I'll see him in heaven. If we believe in Jesus we will see those that have gone on that have believed.That is a good assurance for us left behind. I'll miss my dad,but can remember I'll see him again.
