David, I’m so sorry for your loss. You are doing so well, and though I didn’t know your Dad, I have no doubt he felt your love and support throughout. What we would all give for one more movie with our loved one, you’re not alone in that feeling. Take care of yourself and find moments of joy where you can. <3 T
