Dearest Daddy, Mom and Sisters,
We have always been full of love for each other, and Love is what we take with us when we go to see our Lord. Daddy and all of you have been a great example of God’s Merciful Love to me. I believe that Daddy is now in the Arms of Complete Love with God. This picture is how I will always remember us. See below.
Love, Your daughter and sister,
Melanie Therese
