You believed in higher education and pushed us all to our own limits and beyond! You've led us by phenomenal examples of how to live life "Christ-like" and to do so with humor. How will we ever go on without you?! We ALL miss you Daddy. It has been 5 days since you went home to heaven, but I still cant even process this. But...you did your job, your very hard job of raising and providing for seven crazy kids, and was a beautiful husband. Don't worry (though I know you won't-but we'll take good care of Mommy.

Love you, forever Daddy
