You taught me discipline, teamwork, how to be a young woman of integrity. You came into my life at a time that I most needed a strong male father figure, to help set me on the right path instead of the one I was trying to go down. I disliked you at that time for being strict. But through the years I worshipped you for it. Ty for being my dad. The definition of StepDad: An ordinary person who has stepped up to raise a child to protect, provide, offer guidance and to be a friend.
"Being a real parent isn't in the DNA it's in the heart".
I will Always Love You. You will be Truely Missed. Till we meet again. Say Hello to Mom and Russell for me. Give them a big hug and kiss from me.
One of your baby girls.

As the days pass and the nights too. I want you to know that my heart breaks for you. I love you daddy . You was the first man I loved. Also strong wise and brave. But now that you are with Jesus I don't know how to be I miss you so much. Wishing I could turn back the clock or wipe away all the pain and illnesse you had to live forever. I know that is selfish of me but what I wouldn't give for one more day with you.
Remember the time you , Jesse and I had to.work that texas tech game for 7 /11. We cooked all those pineapple cheese burgers. Tech won that day. We had a ball being there until midnight.
You taught me that family is everything and to love them all the time. You are truly missed. May God and you watch over me.
I love you forever and always.
