Dad, you were and will always be my hero. You fought that monster long and hard. You were the greatest daddy a girl could ever have. You came a long way in your life. Raised 6 children the best way you could and never complained once. I will always remember how you would help anyone in their time of need. Even total strangers. You were loved by many. I miss you so much handsome. Don't worry about mom. We will take care of her. She's always been the rock of this family and the glue that holds us all together. You and Dalton are now our guardian angels. Fly high daddy. There's no more pain. Walk those streets of gold with your head held high. I know you are looking down on us all now. I love y...ou and I miss you terribly but, I know you're in a better place now and we will see you again some day. I love you daddy, always and forever.Read more
