    I miss you so much Dad; I can’t believe your gone. I will always remember our yearly camping trips. I loved hanging out by the campfire talking about everything, boating down the river; especially that time it rained on us! I still laugh at us making fun of the old people that used to stare at us. As I got older, we stopped going. I wish we could have gone one more time. I got my love for the outdoors from you, and I Thank You for that, and everything else you have given and done for me. It was hard not to see you all the time, but I will treasure the times we did have together. I wish I could have gotten to know your side of the family more, but I’m glad I got to know Aunt Sue and especially Jaime. It was hard to watch you go, but I’m glad your at peace and not suffering anymore.
