Oh Papa... There arent enough words to express my gratitude for everthing you have done for me, taught me and shared with me. I treasure my childhood spent at your house in Covina and getting to move with you and Nanny to Arkansas. Those were some of the best times of my life. I cant wait until my little boy has grown up enough to tell him all about you and to teach him how to tie a fishing knot the way you taught me, that you can fix anything with some bailing wire and more importantly to love the lord the way you did. I love you pop and I'll see you again. I'll miss you a lot until then.

I love you Daddy. Thank you for teaching me guiding me and loving me. Thank you for showing me what a godly man should be and setting the example for me to find that in a husband. Thank you for honoring the promise you made to God when I was 3 and dying,for God did let me live and you did serve him the rest of your life. You were a man of your word and God's word. Thank you Daddy for everything. For this is not good-bye just see you in a while. Forever your baby doll.
