You will always be a great dad to me. A wonderful and loving grandfather to my kids. I love you dad and I miss you so much. I remember going to the creek with the kids. I remember when you would take me fishing as a kid, I couldn’t have asked for a better father. You put up with a lot. I miss you so much I just think of being away and not being able to answer my calls. I wish you could have been her to see your granddaughter turn one and for many more birthdays. I love you and I miss you so much sometimes it hurts but I have comfort in knowing you are in a better place. You are resting, sleeping and one day we will see each other again. I love you always dad 💜💜💜💜
