Hey dad. It's that time of year again when we relive the day you left us. It always seems after Christmas, I start to think about what comes next, your memorial. It doesn't seem like it has been 13 years. I wish everyday that you were here, but I know when you are watching over me and send me a sign. It seems 203 shows up everywhere including my McDonald's receipt. You have missed so much down here. I hope you can see all of us from up there. Gosh, after the wreck and the last time I saw you, you looked so good. I really thought and believed you would get up off that hospital bed and go home with all of us. Heaven gained an amazing angel. You are my strength! I love you so very much and I miss you every single day. Until I see you again....
