Gone Too Soon….
You were a man who took pride in everything that you did. You had a big heart that you shared with every-one. Anyone who crossed your path you helped. You were an inspiration to me. You showed me that love was uncon-ditional; our time priceless. You were a gentleman. Filled with love, a loving father and grandfather to many. All you wanted was for your children and extended family to love one another with respect.
You weren't happy that I was in prison serving a life sentence but you showed your love as a parent, a friend and wanted nothing more than to see me free.
Your free in heaven. I will see you when I get there and we’ll have plenty to talk about.
You instilled in me perseverance, faith, and hope. When everyone else turned their backs you were there to let me know everything was going to be all right.
My friend and loving Dad I am going to miss you so much. My heart is broken. My thoughts unclear, but I know God has chosen you.
I love you. Your Daughter, Teresa. I’m missing you.
