Always larger than life to me, I still cannot believe your time came so soon. I know you were ready, and now know no pain or sickness. I love you, Daddy, and always will. I'll treasure the memories forever. You've left big boots to fill. I pray we all carry something on, that you've taught us. Rest In Love, Dad.
