I sit and look back to how far I can remember, & you are always there next to me. Thank you dad for all you gave & everything we had. When I needed a helping hand; yours always reached out, with no thought for yourself. You liked to joke, you made me laugh, & a smile was never far from your face. Your lively spirit always had time for everyone you met; helping with your hands of many skills. I thank you for so many happy memories & for being strong faithful and true. I am so proud of you, brave and strong to the end. A million times I'll need you; I will smile whenever I hear your name. I shall always remember & even though you had to leave, in my heart you remain.
