I always felt loved and taken care of by a man who had always worked hard and provided for his family. I felt so empty this morning when I woke up knowing you were gone. But I know that your in paradise and you are without pain. I love you daddy with all my heart. Until I am with you again. You are forever in my heart.
I love you, Mary Beth
