We miss you more today then ever! The time we had, Wasn't nearly enough to get us through our lifetime. As the years go by, I may have forgotten a few things, Like the sound of your voice,
But i sure remember the love you spoke in every word. There have been many of times that I wished you were still here to celebrate all of my joys, to tell me things will work out fine, just one last hug and an I love you before you say goodbye... Most of all I wished you could be here to calm my fears. We've spent more of our lives without you then with you, I'm sad to say. But I want you to know I still love you, more then ever with each passing day. Rest in Paradise!!!

Today daddy Sarah gets baptised! What a way to turn this day of sorrow into a celebration OF LIFE. We miss you dearly but know you will be right there with us in spirit tonight. I love you daddy!!!
