This was another special day for you. You and your wife welcomed a beautiful baby girl into your lives.
You only got to spend 18 months with her, but I'm fairly certain that she already had you wrapped around her little fingers.
After you were taken so suddenly from us...she would say I have 'Daddy in my heart'.
