John, I'm reminded everyday of the strength that we had together and you always reminded me that no one could ever break that strength that we had when it came to hard times, because we had a bond that nothing or no one could ever break and that strength was carried to our girls and you would be so very pround of them they have stood by me and helped me in everyway they could just like you told them and you knew they would because they are just like us family first, and Thank God we have been doing ok with out anyone else's help like you said it would be. I think you for all the strength you gave them and we gave each other thru all the years as we should as a true family. I love you and you will always be in my heart and the girls hearts for ever and ever will see you soon Merry Christmas John We Love You
Gwen, Johnna, & Taylor.
