There are no words to describe our daddy. He was not only our daddy but our best friend. He was always available to each one of us no matter what the need. He would tell us the truth no matter how hard it was for him to say or us to hear. He took a lot of secrets with him because he would Always listen but never share. He taught us that we ALL make mistakes but they don’t define us and helped me thru the hardes times of my life. The lessons are endless: be honest, work hard, play harder, help anyone you’re able to whether they can repay you or not, love and enjoy our children (they are our greatest blessing), honor your parents whether they earned it or not and that we ALWAYS have things to be grateful to GOD for no matter how difficult life may seem and most importantly to laugh. He never complained EVER!!! He visited us no matter where we lived or how often we moved, even in Japan for this girls sweet 16. I know he has finally been reunited with his mama, daddy and brothers but the hole he has left will never be filled until I can be reunited with him. Thank you daddy for showing us how to live this life and remain happy no matter what. We will be sure to continue those lessons with our children and grandchildren. I sure am going to miss you daddy but I know how blessed I’ve been to have ever had you at all
