Daddy I just want to remind you how much I love and miss you! Today we are having a memorial for you. Every day for the rest of my life will be a memorial for you. You will never ever be forgotten. Daddy I try to be strong but not having you here with me is hard. I guess I'm a little selfish because I want you here. I know God had bigger plans and needed you but I also still need you. I'm trying to keep reminding myself that you, Donnie and Mamaw and the rest of the family in heaven are having the best time together. Give them all a big hug for me until I get there. I won't keep you but Daddy always remember your babygirl loves you so so much Reply to this comment

Daddy I sure do miss you. I love you so much! I keep wanting to call you and I can't call because you don't have your phone with you. That's ok though because I know you are ok and you are having a blast with Donnie and Mamaw and the rest of the family. I have been listening to a lot of the songs that I always loved hearing you play and sing. I would love to hear you play and sing right now. I'm sure you are doing a lot of singing and having fun. I can't wait till I can sing with you again. Give everyone my love until I get there. I will see you again until then Daddy remember your babygirl loves you so much! Reply to this comment

Daddy I miss you so much its indescribable. I keep wanting to call you and see how you are feeling and hear your voice. I miss hearing you tell me that I was your baby girl, your only baby girl and always remember that you love me. Never do I remember you not saying that when we talked. I want to hear you say it again so bad. No matter what im doing i know you are with me because it seems like no matter what it is I have a thought or memory of you. Im lucky to have been chosen to have you as my daddy because you are, have always and will always be the most special man that i ever met. You will always be my one and only hero. Near or far I have never doubted your love for me or any of your kids, grandkids or family period you spoke with love and showed with love and you always made a point to remind us of your love for us. Daddy i miss you and remember your baby girl loves you more than anything ❤ i will talk to you soon daddy Reply to this comment

My Dear Dreama, I know how hard this is on you , Frankie and Davie. I know he was your go to person, when things were good or bad.. Your Dad was there for everyone when he could. He always had a calming tone in his voice and gentle words for those that was hurting. Never letting anyone know that he too was hurting I know we have lost touch over the years, but I have thought of everyone. My prayers and love to you and your brothers. Your Dad is still with you and he is watching over all he love ones, he just has a better view now. I'm here if you need to talk. Love to all Frances.
