Tomorrow is your 15 yr, Anniversary for your E.O.W. And it still feels like yesterday u were taken too soon from us. I love and miss u so much. I wish u could see all your grandkids bc I know they would never wanna stay home bc they would wanna be at pawpaw Jimmy's house. But I know that u r watching over us. I know when u are around bc I'm still finding the dimes. Not sure exactly what they mean completely. But I know when I just vacuumed a rug and look BK down and there it lays. It's usually u trying to tell me something. Bc I will find one and if I don't seem to get it, then there is another and another. And then usually the phone rings or someone shows up to give me some kind of news bad or good. And I love knowing that u r close, but i still wish u we're here bc I need u too behere So much. U are and always will be my HERO, My Daddy-O! I love u to the moon and back.
Love, YourFirstBornAndOldestDaughter
