Thinking of you today as well as everyday. Life could have been so different. I just discovered that my daughter your granddaughter left a reflection . You would be so proud of her and your grandchildren. It's not fair that you were never to meet them. Its hard to believe that I am now older than you were at your time of death. I love you daddy.
