I remember the night after telling my dad I got accepted to a college and after we'd gone out to out celebration dinner, he called me to talk about it and the details on my now applying for a scholarship. He told me how proud he was of me and everything I was doing and to keep it up. He said I'd be the first in our family to go to college, and I still am. I'll never forget what you told me dad, gone but never forgotten. I love you

I remember my fathers hilarious humor, I remember one time when he was driving and he started making jokes with his friend and it was so funny me and my brothers laughed like crazy, one time me and my brothers came home and he was playing his guitar and he was very good at it though that was the only time I seen him play I was very much blown away by it, my father loved all of us like crazy and the untimely passing is very upsetting and devastating to me, my brothers and the rest of the family. he's looking down on us and being very proud of us and is in a better place now. I love you dad, you will be deeply missed by Me, Matt, and Zachary and all the rest of the family, God is with you and the rest of us, I am truly blessed to say that you were my father and you will forever be with me and everyone else. Rest In Peace Father.
