Dad, I know you are up in Heaven having a great time with Mom! You will always be with me in spirit and I will never forget the past 10 years we shared so closely together. You went through a lot recently and believe me I felt awful that you had to go through what you did. I now know that you are now living in Paradise and that your worn out body has become whole again and you are no longer suffering. We will see each other one day again, but until then I will cherish our memories and don’t worry I will be okay as you and Mom raised me well. God loves you Dad and so do I!

Love your son,
