I’ll NEVER forget you DAD! I will love you forever and always, even though death has parted us to soon. You are no longer in pain, nor are you suffering. You found peace after battling cancer with all your might, and you hung onto life for as long as you could, cancer that took over your entire being too fast. You’re in Heaven now with Tiki, looking over mom, myself, Kristal, Jenna and Anthony (Jenna’s fiancé) along with your grandson Ayden, too. Still always and forever, your little blonde girl, Michelle. 💞 👴🏻 🌹 I love you dad and I miss you so much already.
