I love you so much dad. I miss you like crazy. My dad was my hero. And he taught me so much about life and how to handle anything as a man. I couldn't have asked for a better father. He was one of a kind for sure. Helped anyone in need. Sacrificed so much for others. He was a wonderful grandfather my son Levi Craig Tyree made his happiness grow I wish he could have been there for alot longer to share his knowledge to my son. It's up to me to make sure my son knows. It's hard to swallow, it's hard to accept your gone. But I love you dad so much. I know you went to paradise because you deserved it. My dad was well known for his achievements and skills. My dad left a mark in this world. And he will never be forgotten.
