"Hi Mr. P.

It is hard to believe it has been a year already.  When I think back all I can do is thank you for being the dad that my dearest friend and her sisters loved so much.  I also thank you for being my 2nd dad for so many years when we were young.  It warms my heart now to look back at photos of you and my dad or of me you and Carrie.  You were, without a doubt, a very unique and special man.

Love Karrie R"

"I don't even know how to describe the hole that has been left in my life and the life of my children without you here.  I know that the last few years were very rocky for us, but I pray that you knew always that I loved you same as always!  You were a father that we were blessed to have and I am thankful that your grandchildren could see the type of man you were, not just hear from us.  We are so lucky to have you up there watching over all of us now and guide us in the right direction.  I love and miss you Daddy!"

You never once failed to tell me "Oh, you're so pretty." I miss you. Your passion for life, your passion for fishing, your passion for god! You always gave 100% to everything."

"It has been a year today since you had to leave. I love you as much as ever and appreciate all you did for me. I ask myself, "What would Dad's advice be?"  I try to follow it, but sometimes I still act like a kid. I see you everywhere, the banana tree's, my wall's lol, sitting under the tree, planting and sowing the garden, fixing the pens. I am so glad I have these memories. I have you close to my heart. Without you, I don't know how I would have struggled on. Thank you Daddy. You are sorely missed."
