    You were the best Dad anyone could have asked for. You chose to stay in my life and raise me and take care of me as your own even though you didn’t have to. You showed me what hard work and dedication means. You lifted me up in my darkest of times and encouraged me in ways I didn’t know were possible. You supported any decision I ever made. You made sure to always let me know you were proud of me and for that I am eternally grateful. I miss you more than you could ever imagine. I cant believe you are gone. A piece of me has died and I don’t know how I’m going to get through this. Please watch over us and protect us. The kids will always remember the times they had with you and will never forget you. I will make sure of that. I love you and will always speak highly of you to any and all that did and did not know you. Rest In heaven and say hello to everyone up there for me.
