Dad, my dear father how it hurts to have you leave me. I have had you for all of my life and it seems to me not long enough. I learned to speak for myself at your instruction. So Dad, you will be missed by your children, grandchildren, great grandchildren , sister and nephews and nieces and friends. I have learned many things from you. Love God being the most important. Thank you for playing with me, loving me and being my hero. I will try to make you proud and do things honor you.
