I will never say goodbye to you my Father
cause I know this is not the end for us to see each other.
You will only be going to a place where theres no pain nor suffering.
I am happy for you, for you will be with God.
For now we need to go in separate ways.
I remember how your arms hold me and give me strength.
You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.
You were my very best friend.
In my triumphs you were always proud.
I'm very grateful and proud to call you my dad.
Here deep inside my heart you'll always be.
I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time.
I remember the last time I hold you're hand and how you looked at me in the eyes.
If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go.
I felt the world stops and my heart stop beating when they told me you're gone
How I wish I was only dreaming.
Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes, I couldn't speak for a while.
Thank you Dad
For always understanding, listening , caring, and loving me for the rest of your life.
The greatest gift God gave me was YOU…….. my Dad…
It's difficult to let you go but I must…
I must return the gift God gave me…
Till then;
See you in Heaven

Was thinking about you daddy, like every minute of every day. But this time Im not crying, Im smiling. Because I know ill see you soon. And I know you can see me right now and you are watching your grandson run around the house playing. Tears have fallen today, and there will be many more. But the thought of you sitting here next to me has me smiling...for now.
Love you dad so much!!!
