Even though my heart is heavy, I am also at peace knowing your looking down on us from those pearly gates sitting with Tio Rammy and all of our loved ones who have gone before you. I will miss our talks dearly and ur positive outlook on life. I promise to live everyday with the same perspective. I will cherish every memory of you and I promise to laugh a little more and stress a little less. I love you daddy this is not goodbye but until we meet again..
