Our beloved father, words can't explain, I can't believe your gone. Day by day it doesn't get easier but it's the memories that hurt the most. We miss you so dang much, the sense of humor, the jokes, smile and truth told to us when you'd give your pep talks. I can't explain the pain in my heart but know that your family and mom is taken care of. I got this dad. Fly high, no more pain and joy that you deserve dad. We love you so dang much but like you'd want us to go on and don't cry, it's hard dad but each day that passes I won't forget the memories, I'll cherish them and remember you put us first so it's your turn dad we got this mom will be OK, rest in paradise until we meet again and your grandchildren and great grandchildren live your legacy. Love you dad
