Dear Daddy, I miss you already but I'm also glad that you're not suffering anymore, I'm also gonna miss you asking me to make you a cup of coffee for you & hanging out on the back steps chitchatting, especially asking Dalton math questions every morning while we waited for his school bus to pick him up, & you playing with Chico, you called him your little Coondog even though he's Chihuahua haha. Anyway, I love you always, RIP Daddy.
Love, Kelly Sue.
