  1. I love you so much Dad! The lessons that you have taught me will never fade. I’m honored to have had the privilege of being your daughter and I hope that I have made you proud. I promise that I will strive to continue to do so as I know you’ll be watching. .May the road rise to meet you, May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand.. RIP…xoxo
