    Dad, It's hard to believe you are not here anymore. I get ready to call you and realize I can't. We have made some really amazing memories together and I am so thankful for those memories I just wasn't finished making those memories. You have taught me so much over the years and it has made me a better person for it. I love you with all my heart and will forever miss you. I know you are at peace and with mom and Cory and all your family please give them my love. Until we meet again. Love you, your daughter
