Daddy, I have looked up to you all my life. I never thought I would see the day you would have to go on into the next life without me.. I always follow you everywhere it seems... I wont tell you goodbye that is something I just can not do... Instead Iam going to lift my eyes to the Heavens and send you a smile feeling blessed in knowing that I will see you again someday. Until then I will hold you in my heart still loving you more everyday.

Love Your Daughter Katie Browning

Daddy, I have spent my life looking up to you and always wanting to be at your side. Good bye is something I can never say to you. So for now I will look up into the Heavens and know that you are smiling down at me..I may cry from time to time but its just because I will miss having you here with me. I love you Daddy and cant wait til I get to see you again....
