Words can’t explain for how blessed I am to have you as my father-in-law. You and Myrrl raised the man of my dreams! I’ll never forget the time Carlos and I moved and I drove your truck Myrrl told me that you never let anyone drive his truck so he must like you! As the days go by I’ll never forget that we have our guardian angel watching over us! Until we see each other again I love you!
