    Maybe you are relieve that your dad is not suffering any more but you are also greiving that his presence is no longer around. No one to fuss with or boss around in that father daughter way. I remember the stories you would tell about him and the good times you had. Keep his memories within your heart always. Take one day at a time.
    God bless you and family always.
