Hi, Daddy. It’s been almost 10 yrs since you are gone. I miss you so much, Dad. I could always come to you with anything. You always took the time to listen and we’re so understanding. You never judged me or held anything against me. You always understood what I was going thru, no matter what. U never once turned your back on me & loved me unconditionally. U are the best Dad ever. Youre with Ma now. Youre both at peace. I think of you often, Dad. I’ll see you one of these days soon. Until then, RIP.  ✝✝✝   💙💚💕💛💜
