You were admired, respected, and loved. You were my voice of reason my pillar of strength. I don't know what I will do without you, Dad. You gave 150% ALL of the time and expected nothing less from your children. Work hard, play hard. Thank you for showing me the true meaning of integrity,love, and loyalty Dad. My heart is broken but know I will see you againm I love you.

Thou detestable maw, thou womb of death,
Gorged with the dearest morsel of the earth,
