Loss of a Father . The loss of a father is life changing and the pain is always there. Expressing your sympathy through condolence messages are hard to muster at a time of heartache. Our father's represent so many things for us, especially feeling safe when they were near us. These grieving messages can work for all of your loved ones regardless if your friend is daddy's little girl or daddy's little buddy, I am hoping these word inspire you to offer comfort to your friends. I hope these grieving messages will make it easier for you to reach out and be there for a friend in need. Remember it is the small things in life that make the most difference. GOD BLESS YOU!
