    I miss you Daddy! You were just such a great dad and held no equal. Love radiated from you to anyone who was close! You knew how to make me laugh and you knew what to do to make it all better. Whenever I was sick or upset I always cried for my daddy because I loved him so much! My boys love and miss their grandaddy but know we will see him again in Heaven! He is in no more pain! But will forever be missed and Loved!
