It has been 27 years, Dad, and not a day goes by that I don't miss you. I wish you could have seen your grandkids. They are truly awesome! They know about you and today, the anniversary of that horrible day, I am taking my four youngest to the Memorial in Topeka to honor your memory. We live you Dad and we will never forget.....
