My dearest Papa, the man I loved most and longest in my life, and always will. Your love, affection and protection have always given me the strength and courage I needed in life. Now that you are not on earth any longer, I must heed your advice, "stay healthy, keep your body and mind occupied, but most of all be happy!!"
You were a wonderful husband to momma for 55 years, and a fantastic father. Growing up with four brothers and no sisters were sometimes difficult, but I never felt unequal. In fact, I felt like the special one, daddy's little girl. Dad, you were ahead of your time, by far, with your philosophies and your brilliant mind. I always enjoyed the months that you stayed in Florida after Momma passed away, how I miss those days.
I need not be selfish to want you here on Earth, as you are now united with Mom, David, Bobby and all those that passed away before you. Rest in piece my Papa, your love, smile and carasmatic personality will always be with me. You will be missed every moment of everyday.
It seems like it were yesterday, yet it seems like forever ago that you went to a better place, Everyday at 1 and 8 p.m. my mind focuses on the clock, as this was always the time I would call you, seven days a week. How I will miss our conversations. You will be missed more than you can imagine and I will love you throughout eternity and beyond!!
