  1. I love you Dad!!
    I’m going to miss seeing your face everyday. I’m gonna miss getting you your buttermilk lol when I could find it.

    Everyday I think of you and it breaks my heart. I look for the cardinals as a sign you are here!! They make me smile with tears strolling down my face.

    I’m gonna always remember going with you to pick up livestock and watching at the stock yards then we’d go eat, I’d fall asleep in your lap till we got home.

    Mom would yell for me to come in the house and you’d tell her I was busy helping you.

    I’m gonna always remember that wink you gave me a few days before passing, you’ve never done that before with a smile!! You fill my heart with quite the emotion—-I love you Dad
