I will cherish the memories I have had with you these passed 37 years. I wouldn’t change my life for a second. You raised me at times alone and always put your family first. I’m not sure what we will do without you. We miss you terribly. There’s not a second that’s goes by since August 1st that I don’t think of you. I love you Dad, I know I told you everyday but it doesn’t seem like it was enough. I have joy in my life that you are no longer in pain but losing you is indescribable. Rest In Peace. Continue to guide me to be strong to live this life without you. Till we see each other again!!!
