We love you so much Dad!! You taught me many things throughout our life together but the most important thing I learned from you is to always have faith in God & Jesus no matter how hard life on earth gets... There is a better life waiting for us in Heaven. I believe in the power of Jesus Christ & I believe we will see each other again. Rest In Peace Dad... You are loved so much & will be greatly missed until we meet again in our forever home!! ❤️❤️ Xoxo
