Dad I wish that I had you when I was growing up. Now your loving wife is back with you in heaven. I miss you both so much every day. Two of my brothers were with you now (Thomas and Steven). I have one son his name is Thomas after your father and my brother. It will be 40 years in September since you were murdered. I will always miss you.
