Dad I will miss you and I know I am supposed to be sad, but I can finally understand why the Word of God, blessed is the death of His Saints in the eyes of the Lord. I know you are in Heaven with Jesus and Mom and Granpma and I know you wanted to go Home, so is hard to be sad. Dad you are the best man I have had the honor to know. For the first 50 years I did not realize what a man of God you are, Dad I will see you and Mom at the Eastern Gate when God calls me home. Thanks for being a wonderful father and a great example of a Godly man…your son dan
