    Missing You
    Dad I know the past few months we started getting closer and I wish my sons could of known more about you. The death of you left me in total shock I hurt cause I never got to spend the amount of time with you that I should have . Right now I feel so lost and alone to where I feel like I have no one else I could call and shoot the shit with. I am proud that you gave your life to Jesus the pastor at the service told me about it and I am happy , REST IN HEAVENLY PEACE DAD, GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTON
