I must begin by telling you how much I miss you. Life without you has been extremely difficult since you passed away on Aug. 3,
2012. I guess I was not ready for you to leave us. Some days I feel like I was cheated. I needed you and 39 years with you was just
not enough! I had so much more to tell you and I wanted so much for you to see your grandkids get older. You brought happiness to all
our lives in so many ways. You left me with so many beautiful memories and so many important things to remember about what you
taught us! It wasn’t fair you had to suffer from such a horrific disease like ALS. We watched you go from such a strong, independent
man to a man who lost all his strength. It was horrible for us to all watch. But, what I do know is that your suffering is over. I have
never ever met a man like you. You gave so much to everyone. A day doesn’t pass that someone doesn’t remind me about what a
great man my father was! I knew it already, but I love hearing from others. You are my strength as I work hard on being a great MOM.
I think about all you taught me and try to do many things the same. Well, I could go on for days, but I wrote enough for today. As you read this letter in heaven, please remember what you left behind!
Love You Daddy,
