Dear Kim--I was thinking about you from the 'left coast' on this which I somehow think is your natal day (+/-). In searching for your coordinates, I'm so sorry to learn of your loss, and send fond feelings of love, good memories, and support from afar.
Please take care of yourself in this difficult time. [Wish I got to know your Dad enough to tell him how much a childhood compatriot thinks he did a fine job with his unique, bright, beautiful 'live wire' daughter (you).] Hope this birthday finds you in good health, with many years ahead of fulfilment and the love you richly deserve.

To the Saylor family,
Please accept my sympathy for your loss. He was loved and will be missed so much. When a love one has completed their current journey, the living on earth have to learn to live without the one we hold dear. How? Time helps to console, and though humans may not have the perfect thing to say, just knowing someone cares can help. May the God of all comfort (2 Cor 1:3) be with you now.
Wholehearted condolences on the loss of your father. In this emotionally distressing time, I hope that you find peace.
