Daddy,
You were an amazing man. I simply cannot put into words how much I love you. You were a son, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and great great grandfather. You were also a warrior who saved a world. More importantly, you drove me to school on snowy days, and came to games to watch me perform. Your accomplishments during your 100 years of life and those whose lives you touched are too numerous to mention. I love you and will miss you every day for the rest of my life. I love you, Daddy.
