Dad, I can't believe that it has been a week since you left us. I've caught myself picking up the phone to call you; then reality sets in that you are no longer with us. I will miss your sense of humor, your soft spoken voice and your kind nature. I know you are in Heaven rejoicing with Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle Art and Aunt Lilla. You will be forever missed. Until we meet again. I love you. Cindy
