I did it dad! I graduated and I got a full ride to a school other than UA. You asked what would I do if I got a full ride somewhere else and I said I’ll just be going to that school, but now I’m here. I don’t want to be here because it don’t feel right since you aren’t here…the day you passed is coming up. I have been trying to figure out why I been so down and iffy lately but now I realize. It feels weird and I’m actually jealous that you didn’t get to see me fully grown but was able to see my siblings. I don’t want to sound selfish but how can I not when I think about it? At times I feel like I have no right to feel what I feel but you were still my daddy. I miss you and think about you everyday! You will forever live through us! I love you forever ❤️
