Words cannot explain, how much you mean to me, nothing could ever compare, or even ever be. You’re my Daddy, my own and only, you’re my leaning post, although I love my family, I can’t get over your loss. Eeven though you may be leaving, you’ll still be in my heart, you’ll always be real close, even though we’re far apart. While you’re in heaven, please watch over me, and help me as I grow. You have taught me so much, but there is still so much more to know. I’m not going to say good-bye, or that I can’t go on. I’ll say I love you, and see you later, even though you’re gone. I love you Daddy, more than you’ll ever know. I know you’ll be in heaven as a shining star, no matter how far away you seem, heaven is never too far. Happy Father’s Day Daddy, Sherry and Stacy
