Dear Dad,
I wanted you to know how blessed I am to have had you as my Dad. I'm so thankful I was with you as you took your last breath and entered the kingdom of heaven with my head on your chest. I'm so sorry I didn't know the extent of your kidney failure, because as always you were protecting us. You were so strong.

I have never felt anything but love from you. You always made time for us whether it be throwing the football (even though I threw like a girl) or playing a board game or cards. I appreciate you making us feel like a priority all the time. You truly were the best Dad in the world.

I miss you so much, but I know you are watching over us. Until we meet again. I Love You!

Kathy

Lo, There do I see my Father, and
Lo, there do I see my Mother, and
Lo, There do I see my Brothers and my Sisters and
Lo, There do I see my people back to the beginning, and
Lo they do call to me, and
bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave will live forever.
