Daddy I will miss you so much and everyday on my way to work I'll remember our trips together and everytime I look at my phone I'll think of all those calls you made to me every single day and I miss our chats. There's an emptiness I can't fill but I hope you're happy and I hope you are surrounded by everyone you've lost. I love you

RIP, Willy. Lots of good music and fond memories. You will surely be missed. Say hi to everyone in Heaven. Keep on jammin'.
