My father was always the last person I thought of before going to sleep, and the very first person in my life that I thought about when I would wake up each morning . The bond that a daughter has for her father can never be replaced. I lost my mentor and my best friend and we all lost an angel . We love you Daddy on your 5 year anniversary and continue to celebrate your love and light and your generosity and kindess to others. You loved me at my very first breathe and I loved you at your very least breath.❤

You have never ever let us down. Thinking of the most beautiful person that I have known ....and giving thanks to you, Daddy.
My father was the epitome of love and grace,he never once let me down.
He never once disappointed me. I trusted him and he was there for me until he passed in my arms .
My father was my everything and my strength and love and compassion for others comes from the unconditional love that my father gave me .
I am lucky to have has smarts and brilliance and lastly to put others that I love or care for first despite the pain , insult and injury they have caused me in my life.
My father taught me to forgive ..because of him, I live my life by working hard and honoring the love of my life, my father .
I had a beautiful life and continue to do so thanks to having you in my life.
Your daughter,
Alexandra
