The hole in my heart grows with the loss of each love one. The memories of us fishing, frogging the ditch banks and catching pigeons growing up brings a smile and soften the hurt. Till we meet again around the Throne of Heaven brother. You live on in my heart.

During his weakest moment towards the end I put my arms around him to pick him up and he put his arms around me pretending we were dancing singing a elvis song to me. We danced a lot together in life daddy. You are now dancing around the throne with God. You will be missed. My heart is broken but I know your in a better place.
