My father and I shared great times together. I love him dearly. I miss him so much. We had some amazing times together just in the form of spending time together one on one with nobody else around. My dad was a great man who referred to himself as the Suntan Superman. He most certainly was. We always think we have more time to talk with each other and spend time with each other. Take full advantage of time and love each other to fullest. I LOVE YOU POP. I ALWAYS WILL PLEASE(KNOW THAT.
