Yesterday was 5 years since your passing. Mic is quite a young lady; you would be so proud of her, but you always were. Bar is still rambunctious, with a big, kind heart. They miss you terribly. I am sad their time with you was so very short, but I will be forever grateful that you were the man God placed in their lives.
Missing you.
