Dear Dad, Miss you, love you forever! You passed away so young at 53, and now I am 65, and have lived 12 years longer at this point than you did! You left Mom and 4 of us kids, and now you have 8 grandchildren, and 5 great grands! How I'd love to have you back for one day, just to see all your decendents. You'd love them, each and every one! And I am making sure the young ones know about you, and how much you were loved and respected.
You and Mom and Billy all take care of one another! Love, Connie
