Dear Dad I still can't believe that your gone. I stare at your things and I just cry inside. Knowing that you will never again touch them breaks my heart. Thank you for being the best father I could have had. Thank you for bringing us to Fort Wayne when you did. If not I would not have my beautiful children or my brothers have theirs. Everything you did was for us even though I did not realize it at the time. I didn't know that you always had a plan. Thank you for my life Dad. I love you Ricky.
