Laura, Tyler, and Taylor— I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Tyler and Taylor, I was exactly your age when I lost my father so I understand what you are going through. Even though it will be hard, you have a strong mother, and the three of you will support each other and get through it.
