Every single day I think of you and every single day I miss you with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart. Life of memories filled with love and laughter is what I cherish most and continue to try and share with our family.

If there is one wish I could be granted... to give back to others through you... it is for all families to experience just one day of love you gave to your entire family....This day would truly bring love to the world in knowing what a true Hero is
Loving Son, brother, uncle, cousin and friend...most of all ...a father who was loved back unconditionally by all of his children, missed and think about continuously...

I love you and miss you still as if it were just yesterday ...Your Daughter Sherry
