It has been a long 30 years since you left for Heaven. Things have never been the same for all who knew you. I just wanted to drop by and let you know high above, we still miss you, and honor you. What a good man you were, a great Dad, and a true friend. I know the Angels in Heaven still sing with joy and glory. Until we all meet again in that beautiful Paradise, keep watch on us down here, and we will think of you each time we look up into the skies.....Rest In Peace JD (110 Is Eternally 10-42)
