This was the only way I can think of talking to you. I miss you so much. I just remember you telling me that you wish Joel and I would still be together. Well, Joel and I are back together and married. We couldn’t be any happier. We all miss you. Joel says he will be up there when it’s his time and wants a rematch on Monopoly. I love you dad and miss you so much.

You have always been there for me whenever I needed you. I just keep wishing this was a nightmare and wake up and you would still be here. I'm going to miss calling you and for you telling me about the weather. And you always make sure you add in there that you said Hi to Colin. I wish you were here. Kathy and I are totally heartbroken without you here. I'm going to miss playing yahtzee with you. And Monopoly you always would win. Your grandchildren Madison and Cameron love you so much. When Kathy called and told me Cameron was trying to make me feel better. And he was asking so many questions about you.

Daddy, my heart breaks that you are no longer with us, but rejoice that you are with Jesus. You were my best friend, and the most generous, caring, loving and stubborn man. I am so honored and humbled I got to be your daughter. I love you, daddy. Until we see each other again,
Your little girl
