Daddy, I miss you so much. I still need your words of wisdom. But I know you are watching over us. RIP
It's has almost been a year now, I'm missing you more than ever. But I know you are in a better place, but sometimes I get selfish and wish you were still here to answer questions and give advice.
I miss you Daddy.
