Today is a rough day. Missing you daddy! I hate cancer. It took you away from us way to soon. Your mind was brilliant and you had a zest for life. Your body played tricks against you. I seen what cancer can do to the human body. It hurt then to watch what it did to you and it hurts now. I shall never forget.we weren't the first to go through it nor will we be the last. I just pray for anyone that has or will go down that road. I know you are in a better place now daddy. So rest my one and only father. Until we see one another again, God be with us all. Pumpkin!
