My father is my hero and always has been, he was the first man I loved, he gave us all a great example to follow about what family is about, his example’s have given us all our values and we all still follow his lead. Daddy’s work ethic was and is still what we all follow, he was always my champion and biggest supporter. I miss him so much, not being able to pick up the phone for his advice is hard however, I know he is with mom and flying with the angels now with no worries. Thank you to everyone for all your support. I love and miss you daddy, until we meet again, I will hold in my heart the phrase you used to say when I was little “You are the apple of my eye” . Love you more daddy, Tracy
