    I miss you. I loved you so much and you loved me back as your own daughter. I am going to miss our quiet talks when I needed advise. I am going to miss cooking for and with you. I am going to miss the spats we had, the way you enjoyed my flower garden. I am going to miss you just walking right in my door.
    I love you, dad. You will always be in my heart. I can only take comfort in knowing that you are at peace and not in pain. You solidered though the pain and I am proud of you. I am always going to say, “It’s a beautiful day to be alive”, just as you did.
    Keep watch over the kids
    I Love you,
