Its hard to believe it's been 25 years and on that day a part of me broke. I remember like it was today I never thought that my strong, invisible dad would ever leave me. I will always remember watching our favorite shows, eating chips and laughing with you. I know I am like you in so many ways, thank you for not giving up on any of us and making sure we stayed on the right path. It's because of you I am the person I am today. Love you forever,
Love Carol
