It's hard to believe that a year has passed since you went to be with our Lord. So much has changed with myself and the kids. I pray that we are making you so proud of us. We talk about you every day and we miss you terribly.

Thank you for being the person that you were. Hardworking and dedicated to the calling that God gave you. You were an inspiration to many people. I pray that our babies turn into the type of person that you were when they grow up. Someone who would drop everything to help others. Someone who worked a profession that he loved. Someone who loves their family with all their heart and so much more!

We love and miss you so much. Until we see you again!
