Dad, hard to believe it’s been 2 weeks since you passed. My heart hurts. You had a wonderful smile that could brighten anyone’s day. Your sense of humor and famous one liners always had us laughing. These are the memories I chose to remember. You will forever have a place in my heart...until we meet again. ❤️Always and forever.
