Daddy you are really missed every day of my life. I love you more than words can say. I miss your smile and our conversations. You were the best dad that Roger, Edward, Earl and myself could ever ask for. You are always in our hearts and we think about you every day. I know that you and momma are up in heaven holding hands with Earl and Roger. Love your children Gearldine and Edward.
