My last day with you daddy was very special. I told you as I was walking out of the room that if you get lonely just talk to Jesus. He will listen to every word you say. Your response was “ I know” I left there with such peace and I knew right then you would soon be seeing your two sons and 4 grandchildren. One we will all be together again. ❤️❤️❤️
