    Sentence

    "Sorry for your father's death, I know you love him very much."

    I.Must I change "love" to " loved" in this case?
    II. If so, does " loved" mean no love for "the father" any more?

    We say "loved", as there isn't a father any more.

    And this does not imply the son doesn't care about his father any more.
