Daddy, I love and I miss you. I know Holly is glad to see you. We spent the majority of my life under the same roof and I am honored to have been able to take care of you in your golden years. I never really realized how many people you mentored and taught. I guess when your up front and center it's hard to see what's around you. I was blessed to have you as a dad. Life will not be the same without you here . I'm lost right now but I'm glad your in the presence of our Lord. Love and miss you always until I see you again.
