46 years ago today Dad you were taken from us and none of us were ever to be the same. I do believe God has a plan for each and every one of us, but this would never have been my plan....how could it be??? I was only 6 months old and barely had any time with the man they say loved me so much.....my heart today is sad, just as it is every day because I want so desperately to know my father!!!! Such a senseless act took you from mom, me and John. 46 years is a long time dad....my whole life, but you are NOT forgotten and you live on in me and John and your grandchildren Brittany, John, Alyssa, Courtney, Brianna, Jake, Zack and now your beautiful great grandchildren Brody and Kennedy!!! My wish is always the same, that somehow you know how much I love you, miss you and long for your arms to be around me telling me you love me too! You were a brave man and you gave your life dad and our family will never forget you and we will be missing you until the day we will all be together again. God Bless You! I love you!
