You can know take a deep breath & it wont be a struggle anymore.
You have touched sooo many lives in your 79 years.
Thank you for being my father, teacher, supporter and most of all my BEST FRIEND!
You raised Daniel & I to reflect what is important & not worry about things you can't control. A product of your grandparents & parents.
You were a teacher of so many things but most of all how to love & put things in God's hands.
You can have a better eye on me now to keep me in line!!!
There are so many things I could say about you, your humor could always make someone smile.
Now your mission is to get Aaron Rodgers to get that Green Bay Team together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So proud to be the daughter of Mike Kinkade. I am so lucky to have such a special relationship with you.
RIP my friend.
