    Dad, words cannot express the sadness and complete loss I am feeling right now! I not only lost my daddy I lost my best friend. You were a great teacher in my life. I could always count on you when I needed the right answers in life! I have many fond memories with you. Many include you teaching me the outdoors. One that I recall alot and tell people is when I was around 9 or so you asked me to accompany you hunting, which was a daily occurence on the weekends and I can still see your face when I said I wanted to stay home because mom was baking cookies and I knew I would get to clean the bowl of cookie dough out…. so you said fine and went alone. Now I still wish I went with you!!! I know you’re also very proud of me for my hardest accomplishment of getting sober !!! You will forever be missed. I love you daddy.
