    Dad words cant express the love I have for you. I am hurt and beyond lost for words my heart aches for you everyday now and I cant control this pain. You being gone is not real to me. I went into your room today and sat on your bed. I looked at your bed and said to myself this is not right. Why would god take such a beautiful soul. And then I thought to myself it’s because you will have no more pain no more suffering you will be able to fly high with grandma and grandpa. And one day we will meet again. I love you dad forever and always.

    It breaks my heart knowing the next time I come to visit Michigan you won’t be there. I’ve known you my entire life, and you have always treated me like one of your own. You are a great person and I appreciate everything you ever did for me. Now, when I make fried fried squash I will think of you because you taught me how to make it and introduced me to it for the first time. It was wonderful growing up with you around. I love and miss you.
