My heart feels incomplete with you gone. You were the inspiration to the 2 biggest parts of my life. Your death is without a doubt the most difficult thing to bear. I cannot even begin to fathom life without our debates and discussions, your jokes, your teasing... all of that will be so very missed. I love you so much. I miss you, Dad.

I love you Dad and I'll miss you so much. Please continue to look out for your grandchild from up above. So much we never talked about and so much time we'll have to wait to make up. As much as my heart is breaking that you are gone, I'm so thankful you are no longer in pain and that we were able to say Goodbye. Until we meet again...I love you
