Miss you so much already, dad. I hope you were smiling while we all shared our thoughts, memories and stories about you today. I know you were proud of Troy, myself and all of our children, which will make it easier for us to go through the rest of our time without you. Know that you were loved and are already so missed. Love you so much! ❤️
