A NOTE TO DAD I will always love you Dad. I now have an angel I can call by name. My father was a great man. He was a great warrior. He had such a big heart. I admire him for all those things. But I love him because he was a great father. You were always there when I needed you. You always had my back right or wrong. A lot of times I was more wrong than right, but you didn't judge, you tried your best to teach me and show me how to be a man. Everyone loved you. I loved you. Your granddaughter loved you. My mom loved you. My sisters loved you. The love we have will last forever and your light will continue to shine through us. You are the funniest, smartest, most caring person I know. I love you forever and always. Keep an eye out on us. My hero, my Angel, my Dad.
