We will continue to forever miss you "Dad" til the end of Time"
I missed you terribly. Words are not enough to express how much you touched my life, our lives and the vacuum your passing away created. It was an extremely devastating event to experience. Sharing life moments of you with friends and family did not heal the heart but provided some solace.
In remembrance, I continue to pray and ask the good Lord to continue to grant your generous and compassionate Soul Eternal Rest!!!"
"Daddy, I miss you more than words can say.

Your legacy lives on.

We will do all by the grace of God to continue to make you proud of us. You are always remebered for all you have done!"
