"daddy just want to share a memory !!! I remember as a child how I loved to wake up super early and go to the swap meet in phoenix with you and we would sell stuff !! I was a daddys girl for sure !! I just love hanging out with you no matter what it was we were doing !!!! I was never told I have to go with you I always wanted to and chose to rather than stay and play with my friends!!!! even as I got older I loved going to work with my daddy and just hanging out with him!!! when you had your customize shop I enjoyed just hanging out watching you daddy you were so good at everything you did especially being my father, RIP pops love you soooo much!!!!!"

I never wanted to live my life without my mama or you here ! its still VERY scary to me but I'm okay daddy! I'm so thankful that I was able to take care of you daddy sometimes I question myself did I do a good enough job? was there things I could have done to make things easier for you , make you more comfortable , did I tell you or show you how much I love you enough!!! we didn't get to say goodbye and I didn't get to tell you I love you one more time !!! that's what hurts the most but I know you daddy you never were good at goodbyes and never liked them my giant hero had the biggest, softest, most beautiful heart and would cry anytime you said bye to us even on the phone !!! lol I love you daddy !!!! you live forever in my heart !!!! what do you think of our lil sonny???
