    I remember when daddy and I used to work on the yard, get greasy under the cars when we worked on them together. He was the one who always taught me I never needed a man to do things for me when I was more then capable of doing it myself and my most cherished moment of ours is playing catch out in the street for hours firing each others hands up and you telling me I have one hell of a swing you pity the fool who makes me mad. Your at peace now and no more pain give uncle mickey hell and kiss and hug Nana and grandma woodrow for me. Your my hero and the best damn man,father I'll ever know your the greatest love a daughter's ever knew or known. I love you will all I am or ever will be.
