Happy Birthday Daddy!!!! I miss you terribly. The pain hasn't passed yet. It's like it was yesterday. There has not been, not one day pass that I have not thought about you. Everyday is different, some days I laugh, some days I cry. Hope you can hear me when I talk to you. You were in my dreams last night, it was beautiful dream, went by really fast, woke up crying. Got up at 4:30 and been up every since. Headed to put birthday flowers at the cemetery for you now. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY! Rest well comfortably numb. Never ending love, Your Daughter
