I didn't just lose the most wonderful father a daughter could have ever wished for, but also you were my teacher that taught me right from wrong and then you were my strength when I was weak and your gentle hands you would pick me up when I had fallen and I could always depend on my daddy's hands. You also were my hero and you were a man full of wisdom and knowledge and was one never to brag about yourself, your accomplishments and I always knew when I needed advice I could call upon you, but you woud never give it unless I asked. You taught me to dance, fish, swim, do plumbing, and there wasn't anything that we could't fix together. I know your up there cutting a rug with mom. I hold a very special place in my heart for you and always will. Love, your little girl(Brat).
