I've always thought about you, and now even more than ever. I'll always remember our time together, and I'll always cherish those memories. Although I've been away the last couple of years, there wasn't time that went by that I didn't think about you. We know you're in a better place now. I love you to the moon and back and always will. You will forever be in our hearts.

Dad, I will always have our childhood memories, but the memories in the last couple of years were great even though you were struggling, you had such a sense of humor and you could always smile over something small. I am so glad that you are now with your sisters and parents, probably dancing and being so loud. Enjoy! We love you very much. Forever and Always.
Sandy and family
