I will forever cherish the memories over the years and will always love you and miss you so much. This horrible disease stole you away too soon and a year later stole our father. I pray that you're rejoicing in heaven with our family members gone before.
My dad-my first love, the one who held my hand when I was learning to walk, the one who taught me to drive my first car, and the one who walked me down the aisle to marry my Prince Charming. I'm forever grateful that I got to return that honor by holding your hand as you transitioned from this life to your heavenly home.
MY DAD-MY HERO
This disease stole so much from you and me but it didn't steal who you'll always be to me-MY DADDY
I love you so much.
