    The definition of “DAD”should have your name next to it. You where the Rock when it came to your children. Your home cooked meals brought us all together. Most people have stable parents in there lives, but in our case we had 1 stable parent. That was you dad. I will love you as long as the good lord always me to stay alive. My heart and mind are in peices about losing such a great father. But until we meet again.

    I can’t even muster the words to express how deeply I am saddened to hear that you are gone. Thank you for taking me in as family, you always made sure to make me feel welcomed. Dad your passing has left me without words. No more pain fly high and watch over us our guardian angel.

    I thought of you today like I do everyday. I feel like I need to talk to you daddy. Memories are all I have though and all my life you have been there and each day goes by and it gets harder for me. People say you’ll grieve you’ll move on but I don’t accept that. I love you daddy.
