Our daddy was a great man and was loved and respected by so many. He was a gentleman, loving husband, father and grandfather. He fought a difficult battle for 3 years, but his attitude was positive and he never stopped teaching us how to be strong and loving in the face of adversity. We will never stop missing you but we will see you again.

Daddy will be in jeans today, so we invite all of you to wear jeans as well.
