Daddy, I’m going to miss you. You have left a void in all our hearts ♥️ that will never be filled. But it’s ok, because it just means you meant that much to us. Although your physical self will not be here your spirit will be in our hearts and all around us. This is not easy. Your life lessons did not account to you teaching us to live without you. But now your with God. May you finally Rest In Peace that you so greatly deserve. ⛪️
