I Love You

I love and miss you Daddy, I will always hold you in my heart and cherish the memories big and small. Thankful for the time we did have together in the last year and a half. I’ll miss our coffee conversations, your afternoon stories and views on politics. But most of all I will miss your voice when I say I love you very much and you say back “ I love you very much my daughter more than you will ever know” Many hugs sent your way. I know how much you loved those and kisses on the forehead.

Love you my Daddy
