Hey Dad, How has it been 45 years when it still feels like yesterday? Life goes on because it has to, but never a day goes by that I don’t miss you and wish you were here. You would have been such an awesome grandpa. I’m so sorry my kids didn’t really know you... only through the minimal memories I passed on to them. We all missed out on so much, didn’t we? You were only 31. So many years ahead of you were not meant to be. I can’t wait to see you again. Each day that passes is one day closer. Love you❤️
