Daddy, I miss you more than words can say. I miss you as big as the sun. I miss you as big as the moon. I miss you with all of the everlasting breathe that I take. My daddy, I just wanted you to know that I'm doing better, but it will never be the same here without you. There are so, so, so, many things that I need you to know.... But for some reason... I think you already do. R.I.P My wonderful, they shattered the mold that came with you, my respected, and one in a zillion man that you were... Now spread your wings and fly. Please take care of my beloved moma. God knows she needs you! Love you, forever
and always and a day Julie Daddy~ 6/4/1939 -1/28/2020. Moma ~5/24/1939- 7/27/2019
