I am so sorry for your loss of this precious man. I know each of you will miss him terribly, all for your own reasons because you each have special memories with him. I will miss him also because I thought of him as my daddy too. He's with mother and the others that went before him and is so happy to be with them and Jesus. That makes my heart smile! I love you all. You're my family also. God bless each of you! Love!!!
