Oh Dad.... I wish you were here. Some many amazing things are happening and it was what you dreamt for me. I took your advice - and now everything seems to be falling into place. I wish you were here physically with me through all of this. But somehow I know that you are watching all of this happen and smiling. My first single is on the radio and I'll be finishing my first album this Summer. Life sure isn't the same without you - but I make the best of it and do my very best to keep your memory alive and instill the values that I learned from you, into my own children. I love you Dad. See you again someday. I miss you terribly. Pooher
