Oh the shelfish side of me would want you to still be here with us but in my heart i know that it was your time to say so long i did all i could do its so hard to let go sometimes the people that you love so dearly so good bye my father sleep on until next time."

"I've always heard TIME heals, perhaps its true, perhaps its to soon.
but the love you showed us, and the things you taught us, i so wish
every family had that.  You were so gently and patient with us, loving
us all but yet accepting the fact that we were all different.  LOVING
YOU WAS SO EASY, LETTING GO IS SO HARD.  YET SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW YOU'RE  STILL IN THE BEST OF HANDS."

"As a young child.  I saw dad wiping water from his eyes, so i said daddy, are you crying.  He said no baby, my eyes are running water and he keep wiping them. I knew he was already sick even at an early age.  I loved him, so i prayed to God to give me some of his sickness, so he could live a long time.  I said God he's old and i'm young. i can take it, he was in his 30's. FOREVER LOVE YOU"
