You've always been the number one man in my life and you always will be. Words cannot express how much I already miss you. You've taught me to be strong. You've taught me how to love. As I've gotten older, I see so many of Papa's and your traits in myself. Obviously from both of you I have my intense love for animals. I have your sensitivity and sense of family. I'm proud to be "independent to a fault" because I know that comes from you. You will always have a special place in my heart Even now as I say "I love you, Dad", I can see your smile and hear you say "Right back at'cha". I miss you so.
Always your baby girl,
Shirlee & your Family,
I am thinking and praying for you in this time of loss. May the memories of your father help you through this tough time. If you need anything, please let me know.
