    Daddy, you taught me so much. You insisted that I would be an independent person that didn't 5ave to rely on anyone to get through life. Then came along this fella Danny that you ended up loving him and trusting him over anymore else. I know you prepared me for this time when ever it would happen but I still felt like a lost little girl. Everyone has told me repeatedly that I managed to pull a rabbit outta MH bag because I handled it all without breaking down on front of Momma. I'm sorry I wasn't there when you finally met your maker. I hope you are just getting reacquainted with the loved ones that were already there waiting to greet you. I'm glad you'r no longer suffering. You know that we'll be taking care of Momma. She's gonna be so sick and tired of Danny and me but she'll just have to get used to, huh?? Per your very own orders. You are the first man that loved me and you'r the first man I loved. Even after marriage and children, that love and pride only got stronger. There's soooo much you taught me as young mom and more things about running 2 successful businesses. You were and will always by my first love. The smart, strong, hero of every little girl's life! Until we all meet again in that place called Heaven. I love you and words can't tell how upset for not being back up there to.have a final visit and I would've told you what you waiting to hear so you could be let go of those earthly bonds. I love you soooo very much Daddy! I wish we'd had just a little more time. I do. Know that they're something you're trying to get through my head because you are literally calling my name but when I look for you I'm unable to find you. But, I am stubborn like you so never fear. Cause as long as you're trying to reach out then I'm here waiting for knock over the head.. Rest well now Daddy, The rest of us are just waiting til it's time john you. It'll seem like moments to you but-- from here on Earth.. it's gonna be a longer wait for us. ❤❤❤❤

    I will sure miss hearing Uncle Thurman pick at Aunt Florance when I call. He was always joking and laughing. We are praying for everyone and will miss Uncle Thurman dearly.
