Daddy, I will always remember you. You did so much for me, for you made me the strong, giving, kind and faithful person I am today. You told me your many words of wisdom. And, even after you had the stroke you still had your ways to communicate with me. That I was your favorite daughter, child out of all. Oh. Daddy. I will greatly miss you. Your loving favorite daughter, your scuttlebutt.
