    When the heart weeps for what it has lost, the soul laughs for what it has found. Rest in Peace Dad. I'm thankful for the time we had, yet I can't help but wish for a little more. Debbie found the letters I wrote you through the years....that makes my heart smile;-) Until we meet again- dance with angels now and save a place for me. Love, your daughter Tammy
