I will miss our talks, holding your hand and walking along side you on your journey. We all have missed you this past week. Every corner we turned e something wonderful happened. Caught myself several times wanting to find you and tell you about it. We all did.
Dad, thank you for all you did for me and my family. Thank you for being such a great provider and all the sacrifices you made to make sure we were taken care of. I learned a lot from you and I treasure it all. I love you dad and know that I will see you again some day. What a day that will be.
