To Mr Wood's children (and entire family)

I am sorry for the loss of your father. I wanted to share a sentiment that was on a card I got when my brother was killed in the line of duty, I hope it helps in some small way. "When you are sitting there going about your day and the memory of a loved one who has passed away comes slipping into your mind, that is their way of letting you know you are still connected."

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
