Hi dad. It's arrived. My first Father's Day without you. Where do I start? I was not looking forward to this day. I still am missing a piece of my heart that you took on that night. I know how much you loved this day. Dad, I will always love you and will never forget you. Thank you for looking over me and for our "chats"in the truck every morning.
Your son,
