Happy Birthday in Heaven Daddy. Sorry I'm a little late I didn't have access to my phone in the middle of the pacific. It was a hard day not to write to you. I love you and miss you. <3

Hey Daddy. I haven't written in awhile thought I would pop in to say hi. I miss ya bunches. I hope you have a great Father's Day in heaven. You are extremely missed by everyone. We think about you daily and remember many great memories. There are tons of days where I see a new show or some quirky invention that I think you would love and think how much it stinks not to share it with you. I hope you are resting and enjoy the big sky smiling down on us all. All the kids are getting so big. Both girls are so funny everyday and smiling constantly. They miss you lots, especially Kelsye. If I had one wish it would be that they always remember you, I hope they do. I talk about you all the time, I wish you would have had more time with them too. I love you and miss you so very much <3
