"We hope this will give everyone who misses my dad the chance to grieve and give thanks for his life and obviously if he does come back we'll have another service of thanksgiving. Obviously, we're realistic, we know the chances of dad being found alive are slim but without clear evidence of that we can't really have a funeral."
