    Dad, we spent every day and night together for the past several years. We were so blessed to have this time together and suddenly you were gone. We had some bumps in the road but we had laughter and love. Home is not the same without you and the passenger seat in the car is empty but you remain in my heart forever. May you rest in peace and watchover everyone you loved.
