May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and the rain fall softly on your fields
And, until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.....

May angels lead you in, dad. You are now at peace - up in Heaven with Ryan, having a catch . Love you both.
