Dad, I will carry the depth of your loss for all of my days. You will be missed in so many moments moving forward and especially as my son grows. I can only hope that your grandson will grow into the kind of man that would make you proud. You have overcome so much in your lifetime that I am truly humbled to be called your daughter. I remember when you used to tell stories of your childhood days and I've always thought that you've had the most extraordinary childhood. You did indeed have an incredible childhood, but even greater was your ability to face everything with such intelligence, courage and a quiet stubborn assurance that anything can be persevered. You remain, even in sickness and death, the strongest person that I have ever known. We love and miss you beyond measure our beloved daddy and pappy.
