My Dad, you were not just my Father, you were my Buddy and friend for life and ever after. The void I feel since you are gone cannot be explained by me. I try every day to do the things that you would hope for me to do and always will. I am amazed daily of the foresight my father had in life as I go about my day to day life. I wish you could be here to meet baby Steven he is pure and a well needed joy to us all. Paige your "PUP" is doing very well and is so close to all of us. I bring her with me on occasion to bring you flowers and visit. Your many writings you left for me are precious and treasured and I am trying as hard as I can to follow and enjoy all of them as well as the life we had together. I love you Dad. Thank you for being there for me always and the best dad that I could ever hope for. Your son , Steven Paul Ellison
