Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal. You are loved more than you will ever know. Words are few, thoughts are deep Memories of you we will always keep. The comfort of having a father may be taken away but in our lives he will never leave us.....Even after he is gone. I will miss talking to you and seeing that beautiful smile.
