Every Saturday was spent waxing dad’s car till he had his own and then some.

  1. Dad,
    It was too soon for you to go! My heart has been broken since the day you left. I miss your bear hugs. Your smile! Your strength, and advise when I needed it! Not a day goes by that I think of you! I will always hold on to the days I was by your side, your lil girl! We would fish and do things on a farm! Drive into Texas sunsets going home from a hard days work. You will always be in my heart. Your grandson goes older looking more and more like you each day. I hope that we both make you proud! I love you Daddy, I miss you soooo much! Your daughter, Stephanie
