What can I say? To the best Dad ever. Thank you for making me the person I am, for all the great memories and for being there for me when I needed you the most. I can't put into words how much I love you. I will sadly miss your wicked sense of humor.
I pray every day that I will make you proud to be my father and best friend.

P.S. Auggie says Hi!
