I miss you daddy. I wish you were here for me to say Happy Father’s Day. But I know you’re not suffering anymore. You were such a good daddy and grandpa. I have so many memories that I can’t even put it all down. You made me laugh so many times. We talked about everything and anything. My kids knew you as their crazy goofy grandpa who had all the weird fun things to play with outside at your house. Haha. I keep waiting for a good morning message from you. It hasn’t hit yet that I won’t receive those anymore. We love you Daddy.

Oh, I cherish all of the memories. I cherish the one's of you and my first born, as he does too! He misses you sooOo much! I remember you riding him around on the riding lawn mower and him falling asleep finally. I cherish the memory of you and my Momma planting garden's over the years, telling me to come get what I need to help my family, just as long as I helped! Planting those strong genes my Momma had already instilled in me and carried it forward. I remember you always made my son laugh, no matter what. Even though he was always shy at first, you and Momma were always able to turn his visit into something magical. Even if it was just about Sambo DooDoo balls! That one will never go away; neither will -- "back in maaah day!" So many stories that we as my own family cherish. So many we missed with my 4 month old. You meant a lot to my new husband to be as we started out a family. You were there any time he had troubles with me-- and lord knows I have them. You sooOOoo will be cherished in our memories. I'm so greatful that you got to meet him before you passed and I'm so greatful that I got to hear I love you before all this happened. Just know you are missed and will forever be cherished.
