  7. It is SO hard to say goodbye to your Dad … there are so many things you will miss.
    Keep in mind that every time you remember your Dad, he’s still with you.
    As long as we remember, they are still in our hearts and minds.

    Ill always remember all the little inventions he came up with and ways to make things easier. What an amazing mind!

    Cry your tears because you loved him, but remember that he loved you too.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you guys….
    Love, Lynnell
