Every time you would pick me up from school or from work we would always listen to my oldies playlist, you and I would sing every song word for word at the top of our lungs. Those memories will always be my absolute favorite. I promise to always keep our McDonald’s trips a secret from grandma (haha) Thank you for teaching me the smallest of things to the biggest. Like how to change a headlight or instal a ceiling fan. You have taught me so much more than I could have imagined. Thank you grandpa for everything and all the memories we shared together. I love you so much and I’ll see you again!

Dad, you will forever be in my heart and my memory! You were my biggest hero and my first love! God chose you to be my father and as always he did an amazing job choosing you! Thank you dad for always being by my side, to support me and lead me when I needed you the most. I will always remember your smile, it lit up the room. You never allowed anyone or anything to discourage you. You always had a way of overcoming obstacles. I can only hope to always have your attitude when life gets hard.
Don’t worry about Mom, we will always take care of her. She is a strong woman and we will get through this. We miss you and love you very much! I know we will see each other again in God’s kingdom. - Forever Daddy’s Girl
