Oh my daddy I already miss you so bad it hurts. I wasn't finished making memories yet. I have never been without my daddy before. My life will forever be changed, but I am so proud of you for the fight you gave it. 70 radiation treatments before you became to weak to fight it any longer. That just showed how strong and stubborn you are. I can only imagine the hug between you and Frankie. You have missed him so much. I can hear him now " Come on daddy I'll show you the best fishing holes". I'm going to do my best to let you rest in peace. See you both later, I love you two more. Kel.
