I have so many memories over the few years that I had with you, but I guess my fondest memory was the talk you had with me on the best day of my life, the day I married my best friend. You told me to make sure I take of your little girl and made me assure you that I would. You also told me that I had your blessing. Not only will I take care of her Al, I will love her for the rest of my life. You were the most selfless man I've ever known, thank you for all of the memories. Tommorow is going to be hard for us all, but I know you'll be there with us.

Dad, I love you more than life its self. You always took care of us. I feel like this is just a bad dream and I'll wake up and you will be right there . I feel selfish for not being in Ohio with you . I wish I could do things different but I know you thought I did better away. I wish I could have took your spot . you were so selfless and you never complained . all the way too the last breathe you took. I'm dealing with this the best way I can and that's knowing that the book was already written. And this is all gods plan. I will always keep you close too my heart . because I know you will always be watching over me. I love you like a circle it never ends... Love jenny
