I have been missing you so much these days. This year hasn't been a simple or easy one. That being said I know you've been watching over me and probably trying your best to teach me some lessons along the way. There have been many times I wished you were here for me to turn to. You were stolen from all of us far to soon, and Justice has not been swift despite all that you/we stood/stand for. But regardless of the sacrifices we continue to march forward. We know no other way to not only survive, but to live and live well. Rest well dad. I miss you.
