I knew your dad and husband for just a short while but boy did he leave an impression. He was always smiling when I would see him and he always asked how I was doing. I wish I would have gotten to know him more. After looking at all of the wonderful pictures that your family has shared, I feel like I know him a bit more because he is the dad that every child dreams of. He is so proud and happy in every single photo and I can tell on everyone's faces what a joy Mr.Alton was to know and to be loved by. I laughed and I cried when I viewed the pictures and I know now that he was a great man. He had a heart of gold and he loved all of you equally. You all are so lucky to have had him in your life all these years . I admire Mr.Alton and my heart is heavy knowing that he has gone home. If you see my daddy up there, tell him that I love him and miss him so much.
