    My dad was a wonderful man. He had his moments, but he always had a way to make it up to you. I take comfort in knowing he has reunited with mom (Ida) in heaven. I love you dad, give mom and hug and kiss for me. I’m sad that your gone and I will never see those blue eyes again, but I know your in a better place, and not in pain. I miss you already, did you really have to go dad?
