They say there is a reason. They say time will heal, neither time or reason will change the way I feel. Gone are days we used to share, but in my heart you are always there. The Gates of Memories will never close. I miss you more than anybody knows. Love and miss you every day till we meet again always and forever…Love you Dad.
