Dad, I love and miss you so much already. I was used to seeing you everyday. We were always together. You weren't only my dad, but also my best friend. You lifted me up when I was down, and we shared our joys together. Anytime we had exciting news, we called each other first. You were my everything. I love you so much Pops.

Dad, I'll love you and miss you more than you could ever imagine. You are the best dad ever! You weren't only my dad; but a friend also that would never judge me, and always lead me in the right direction. You always gave me the best advice. We've shared happy times and sad times. I love you so very much. Rest now Pops, and be happy. You will be missed so very much.
