"Today marks five years of this giant whole in our hearts & in our family, the day you left us.  Not a day goes by when you don't creep into our thoughts, Dad.
We talk about you with Zarya & share memories of you.  It tears me up that you two don't get to be thick as thieves, causing mischief & mayhem together.
Even if we didn't always see eye to eye, I love you, Dad, & I wish you were still here, everyday.
We miss you.  We will keep you in our hearts always.

Rest in Peace, Dad."
