Being your daughter is one of the greatest honors I’ve ever been given, and I’m proud to call you my father. You were an incredibly selfless man with a great sense of humor and so much love to give. There are many memories that I will cherish forever, but wish we had more time to continue to make more. It’s hard to imagine life without you, but I will live the rest of my life honoring you, remembering you and trying to make you proud. Thank you for making me the strong woman I am today, and for always being there for Kathleen and me. I love you with all my broken heart and miss you immensely already. Please watch over us and continue to be present with us always, guiding us and loving us. It never rains everyday.

Your #2, Bunny

Dad, the gift you've given me of being your daughter will be the biggest honor I hold with dignity and grace until the end of my days, when I at last see you again. Your smile and spirit lift my heavy heart, knowing it's not all darkness, but a chance to honor you with each step forward and with each act in my life as a dedication to you. I am so proud to be your daughter, and I love you to the end of time. I miss you dearly, but I know you are already me and Christine's guardian angel and will still always be here for us. It's not good-bye but a "see you later."
Forever your #1, Kathleen
