I lost my best friend, my rock, my hero. He was the best father and grandfather anyone could have. I will miss him dearly, he will forever live on in our hearts. I will never ever forget him and the sacrifices he made for his family and his country over the years.

For all eternity daddy, I will miss you. I love you more than words can say...I thank you so much for everything. I will make you proud each and every day.

I love you always and forever,
Daddy's Little Girl
