Dad, I have always been your "Shorty". You called me that even after I was grown. I will always remember that song that you played in that old 63 that you had that was ours; "Daddy's Little Girl". I will miss you greatly, but I know in my heart that you are happier now that you can be with the love of your life. Mom was and will always be by your side. I miss you!!! Love you forever!!
