Time does not heal all wounds. I wish I could wake up from this. No more calls, no more text. No new memories to be made. Your birthday / my anniversary is coming up. It does not get any easier. Why did you have to go Daddy?
I loved you then, I love you still, I always have and I always will.

My friend, Robert Johnson!
I don’t know why we called you by your whole name, “Robert Johnson”.
You were one of the liveliest of the bunch from Connie Lane.
Loved Life and Loved to laugh!
I will always remember you with a smile on your face.
Rest in Peace, Robert Johnson

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Daddy, I think of you many times throughout the day each day. I so wish I could just hear your voice again and hear your laugh. You were such a wonderful light and I miss you dearly. I will love you forever.
