One of the hardest things I've had to do in my lifetime is to say good bye to one of my best friends, you my father. Dad it saddens me greatly to know your gone and not here to call me, give me a hug or kiss, make me laugh, or help me get through a difficult time. Losing you is one thing that brings me extreme pain. I could talk to you about anything and yet you never judged me or looked down on me. You always were proud of me and showed me how much I meant to you all the time. You cared so deeply for me and ALL your children. I know you constantly asked me if I had talked to my brother or sister to make sure that I stayed in contact with them to ensure that we shared a bond and love regardless of our situations. Times when I would talk to you about issues or things in my life you never were biased in giving me advice on what was only best for me. You made sure I thought things clearly and was nice to all those around me by also taking into consideration other people's feelings as well. I feel as though I will be so lost without you and wish I had more time with you on this earth. I love you so much and valued & treasured our relationship including the talks that we had together. You helped me a great deal in my lifetime and your constant ways of showing me how much I mattered to you and how special I was has made me a part of who I am today. I am strong because both you and my mom have had that impact of making me stronger to face all life's challenges. Although I don't want to say goodbye dad I know I will see you again and will look forward to that day. All that I hope and wish for is that you are in a much better place looking down at us, watching, protecting, and sending us little reminders of your love. I just want you to know I love you and hope you're okay and I bet you're just as sad as I am to not be able to call us and talk to us but it is not goodbye dad. It is until we meet again and no matter what the distance is you are still in my heart and will remain there forever. I wuv you daddy!!
