I will miss you more than words can say. I think about you everyday just wishing I could hear your voice or feel you put you arms around me and give me one of you big ol hugs. I would do anything to hear sis I love you one more time. You were the first man to hold me and say I love you, and you were the strongest and kindest man I ever knew. I hope god takes good care of you until I get there. I will take care of mom as I promised. Catch a big fish for me, kiss my grandma and be waiting with open arms when I get there. Watch over my children and send me a message from time to time. Love you daddy.

But god has taken away all the suffering now and he wanted to take him home..And im sure he will see everyone we have loss in the past and tell them all hello and how much we love and miss them as well! Wish we could be there but sorry we cant but we want you to know we are praying for you all and you will always remain in our hearts! Love you all!!!
