Daddy, almost everything I can remember or I can think of has something to do with you.. There was never a day I didn't talk to you or worry about you. I miss my daily calls from you at work and the calls asking if I had to work on a Saturday or Sunday because you needed help. I am so lost without you! I love you to the moon and back!
