Dailey was my dad for 18 yrs. We had alot of great times together as a family. He used to say I was his favorite daughter in law. Of course I was the only one. Dad I'm glad you're ok now. You're in heaven with both mom's. You will be greatly missed. There will always be a place in my heart for you. My prayers for the family.
