    You went through more then one person should and it makes me feel "better" that you are at peace now..no more missing kenny and greg..no more trying to cure the pain. You ARE the strongest man i know! You were the best dad to me and Courtney you could be! You were always there for us! You were always the voice of reason when something was wrong.. or when their was something me and sis were scared to tell you.. you always listened and never once judged us. I think about you everyday and how i want to just pick up the phone and call you! i miss you so much it hurts... Knowing Kooper will never know how amazing you were and how much you loved him breaks my heart! but we will make sure he knows how great of a papa you were. Im thankful kendall got to be with you, your last days and she loved you so much! Ill think of you always. I Love you with my whole heart! janie
