Dear Dad
Today is another hard day missing you. I'm happy only because you are not suffering anymore. I know you didn't want to leave us . You loved each one of your family members unconditionally, and never ever forgot about them . You might not have known what they were up to in this big world but they were always in your heart . All who knew you has a grand story to tell, because you were a very kind, gentle, loving , compassionate , generous , kinda guy. That was you and you taught me and my brothers well. Things you've taught us will go on in us through eternity. I'm sure even your grandchildren and great grandchildren will pick up some of your ways . All your friends that you've made over the years had a place in your soul as well. I will continue my adventure through life. With you always on my mind, in my fondest memories that we made together.

Forever missed for the amazing gentleman you were ❤
Love you so much father . My #1 man.

Love Karen xoxo
