Daddy, the day I lost you, I lost a big piece of me. I love you more than you could have ever known. I was your baby girl from the day I entered this world. You were the first man I ever loved. I am so thankful that I have gotten to spend precious time with you these last few years. I will miss you for the rest of my life. I love you daddy. Rest in peace......
