    I will miss my dad so very much! He was my everything & I’m lost without him! He will never see Samantha grow up or Buddy! That breaks my heart! Samantha loved giving her papa kisses on his cheek! She’ll wonder where he is & it’s going to be hard to explain to a 3 year old that papa is in Heaven & we’ll never see him again! Atleast not here! Can’t wait until we see each other again one day dad! I know you’re with Grandma,Papa and Aunt Wanda and Uncle Scott! You’ll never be forgotten! I promise you that!
