It has been a week since we lay you to rest, Daddy, and there hasn't been a day that has gone by that we haven't missed you or thought about you. Every one of us are still in shock that you have gone home. We weren't ready. But I know that you are dancing in the sky!! I miss you and I love you, Daddy!! ~~~Minnie
