Dad, I miss you, sometimes I dream about you and often I still hear your voice in my mines ear. Even as I leave this note and flower I start to cry for even now I could use a dad's embrace. Sometimes I remember us eating a banana sandwich or that lemon pie you liked cause those are a couple of my little girl memories, of you and me, I miss you daddy, but I still thank GOD for the time he gave, and I know you are watching over me always.
