Dad- I miss you so much! Thank you for loving me and the girls so much! You are definitely one of the best!! You went to endless youth sports games, school lunches, band concerts, dropped off donuts... you even came and watched me briefly play soccer 😂. You always supported us and truly enjoyed being there!

Thank you for loving mom so much and teaching me how to love. 36 years is an accomplishment! Also don’t worry about mom, Bridget and I will take care of her always!

We have so many good memories that I will treasure forever. We weren’t the richest growing up, but that didn’t matter. You always gave us your time by taking us on day trips and vacations and for that I am grateful!

I am so blessed to have a dad who loved me so much and supported me throughout life. I wish you were still here, but I am so happy we all were with you your last day. Enjoy the heavenly gates. I can hear you singing now ❤️
