Daddy and I hugged one last time in my dream last week. I could not have had a better dad. I am very sad but I also know heaven has another angel and bright shiny star in the sky. May God bless all my family as they also grieve. But knowing that he was in pain. I am sure the Lord has let him be whole again. Dad you were my idol. I love and miss you forever. Until we meet again may you see all your loved ones again.
