Daddy,
Since you left us so many memories have been running through my mind. I remember you putting sponge curlers in my hair when I was a little girl before bed and everything up to holding your hand while you slept a few days before you died. You were such a selfless person. You gave so much of yourself to others and I never heard you complain abut anything or anyone. I know you are not suffering now but I would give anything to have you back. I will love and miss you always.

Becky
