    Daddy,
    I miss you so much. I wake up everyday wanting to call you just to hear your voice or to ask you over for dinner. I love you with all my heart! You are my everything, my hero and always my person. I don’t know how to move on without you but I know that you would not have it any other way. I promise to make you proud and I promise to always talk about you and share your stories and pictures with the kids so you will be forever remembered in their hearts. You were the best man I have ever known, so strong, so kind and so loving. My heart aches without you! But I know you are a huge part of me and you will always shine on within us kids. I love you now and forever. Rest well dad, until we meet again. I will see you soon!

  16. I miss you. I’ve never missed someone so much. I think of you each and every day… I feel you with me, whispering “don’t cry missy Molly” I wish you could see my children grow up… They often ask about you, telling me stories of how you had “great tickle hands” we pray for you to hear us, for Jesus to find you and wrap you in the warmth of our love… Forever and always. Xoxo. Tara, Matt, Hudson and Elijah.
