Missing you dad. I think of you every day and you help me get through the things that I am not sure about. It is so hard some days that you are not here with us.
You are a huge part of my heart.
I love you so much.

Six months ago you had to leave
My life goes on each day
But without you here to guide me
My life will never be the same
I feel your presence with me
And think of you each day
It broke my heart when you had to leave
I so wanted you to stay
Now as you're resting peacefully
I'll get my strength from you
So you'll still be here with me
Each day to get me thru

Love You
