My Pa was the most selfless man and he deserved so much more in life. I will always wish for one more hug and one more moment with him because there truly was never enough. He was someone you always wanted to be around. There won’t be a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. You have touched many lives and life won’t be the same without you Pa. I will try and be strong like you were and make you proud. I miss you every single day more and more. I wish you were here with us Pa, but I’m glad that you are no longer in pain. There has to be a heaven for such a beautiful angel. Say hi to Cloe for me! I love you more than anything Pa! I’ll miss you forever and I will always think about you. I love you Pa! ~ Love your sweetheart
