To my loving family,
Every day and every night when you feel the need, to hold me tight. Just blow a kiss into the sky, for I will be that close by. In the heavens throughout the day, I will watch over you and hear you pray. I see you smile and shed a tear, for you know that I’m still near. Your angel in the sky.
I love you Dad
