God saw you were getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered come to me. With tearful eyes I watched you and saw you pass away. Although I loved you dearly, I could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke my heart to prove to me, he only takes the BEST!

That poem has stayed with me for years. It helped me grieve the loss of my mother. I now turn to it to grieve the loss of you daddy. You and I had a special bond, so strong and sweet. You stood by my side through it all. I had the honor of repaying the favor. I cared for you over 5 years and although it was difficult, I would not have had it any other way. I knew over these last few months that you were tired. I knew you were holding on just for me, you knew I could not live with out you. When that call came in at 4:30 a.m. I knew it was time to say goodbye to you. I drove as fast as I could and made it for you to take that last breathe and your heart stopped. I will never forget that day. Your presence stayed in the room which is why I could not leave right away. You have meant more to me than you could have ever known. I hope I made you proud and I hope you know that I truly love you more than life itself.

I will now try to pick up the pieces of my broken heart and go on without you. I don't think I will ever be the same. I know Angel was waiting for you. Job well done daddy.....job well done. There will never be another like you.

Love Always,

Daddy's girl-Jacqueline Michelle Thomas

It's with a heavy heart that I say I have lost my dad. Ephesians 6:2 says “Honor your father and mother”—which is the first commandment with a promise." I honor, respect and unconditionally love my dad and will miss him dearly. I will miss our trips to McDonald's, listening to My Prerogative REALLY loud and dancing to MJ videos and JB and waking up at 5 am on Christmas so you could watch us open our gifts before you went work. I will carry on all that you've shown me and hold it dearly.

A boy can become a father but it takes a special man to be a daddy. Every father bears a fundamental obligation to do right by their children. No parent is perfect, it's hard. My dad did right and served as an example for me, my sons and daughter. I thank GOD for every moment, good and bad because they have all made me who I am.

This makes it my third dad to have passed. Stepdad, grandad and my daddy in just a few short years. Hold tight to those you love and appreciate the current moments and the memories.

Thanks Daddy
