Dad

You are sorely missed. I don't really have the words for what you mean to me. I will miss the fatherly advice and guidance that you provided over the years. I will remember often the hunts from the hill country to Mexico and the great times we had in Port O'Connor. Again one day.

Your Loving Son,

Myles
