I, your daughter, miss you so much and wish you could have been here longer with us as you were taken from this earth way too soon and taken from your children before your time, I would give anything to spend another day with you, I will always remember your kind gentle ways and the stories you told me as a little girl as well as an adult. I will always remember your smiling face and the only wish I have is that I could have had more time to spend with you, I lost you at the age of 24 years old, and will remember all that you gave to me in the short time that you lived with me, I miss and love you very much....and can't wait until the day I see your smiling loving face again when a daughter and father are reunited in the greatest kingdom of all. I love you so much Dad.....your loving daughter, Lisa.
