My dad died from a sudden death too. It was a very hard thing for me to get over. I couldn't imagine how much pain his family went through. And reading through the reflection it seemed liked his family was super close. But I hope his kids and family had a quick recovery from his death. And I am thankful for his service for which he was a Angel and was brought to his community to protect the people.
