Dad I miss you everyday. You were so precious and unique, a guiding light throughout my life. You
were my strength when I was weak. Happy Memories flood my mind whenever I think of you, but you
can never be replaced, that much is sadly true. The fact that you’re no longer here still fills my heart
with pain. I wish I had just one last chance to talk with you again. I shall always remember the
closeness that we had. I love you and miss you so much, My Kind and Thoughtful Dad...
~Love Monique
