Hey Dad, Today makes 46 years since you were ripped from our lives. Just three little kids with our young mom left to pick up the pieces and to try and carry on. We did our best but were never completely whole again. Mom did a great job raising us and I’m sure you told her that when she got to heaven :) My oldest is nearly the age you were when you were killed- you were 31- just a baby. Well, I’ve got more years behind me now than I do in front of me and I can’t wait to see you and mom together again. Until then, please keep an eye on all of us, including your 13 grandchildren. Love you,

Daughter Taryn Walters Ontiveros
