I miss hearing your voice seeing your face and just all around just the person you are!!! I LOVE AND MISS YOU!!!

There are so many! The time we went and played a round of golf at old fort and you sank a 30 yard chip shot. I don't think I have ever seen a smile that big on anyone. You even called yourself Tiger Woods the rest of the game. I love you dad and by the way great shot!

Last year for father's day Nikki and Cayli made plans with dad to go up and see him. So Nikki called me and had the idea that Jessica and I would ride along and surprise him. He didn't have any idea I was there. The look,(smile) on his face will never leave my mind. I love and miss you "Memories are a gift from God that death can not destroy"
