Dad, you're one year is coming up. It's gonna be hard. I really want to see nana and Vickie so bad. I know you're with me every step of the way. It's so hard without you. I'll never get over the fact you're gone. It breaks me down every day. I miss you with all my heart . I wish my boyfriend could meet you. He reminds me of you. He has that personality. He'll fish with Zach, I know he'll be glad too. No one is ever going to take you're place. Sometimes I catch myself staring into the distance, and just think about you. I have to run to cope with the sadness. I miss you like crazy daddy. You will always be my #1 man. I love you so much.
