    My dearest dad, you always had a smile, a laugh that was contagious, a quick joke or story. You were my biggest supporter, no matter the endeavor. I will always love and miss you every day of my life. I love you so much dad, and and so thankful you are at peace and out of pain. It was an honor and a privilege to have spent the last few day with you. I could not have asked for a better father.
