    Daddy, I can’t believe I’m writing this I know death is apart of life but I wasn’t ready😭I will miss our conversations and when I was feeling down you always told me I would be ok. I want you to know I will miss you deeply. They say time heals but I will carry you with me everyday in my heart. I’m so happy I got a chance recently to come and visit you and have that time with you. I am so hurt and sad but as I preach to others your still with us and in a much better place with no more worries and pain. Please kiss our mother and we will see you again. I will watch for the signs you give me. 🦋enjoy heaven and your loved ones. “ See you on the otherside” ❤️Your daughter forever and always Tonia ps. Michael & Your beautifully grandchildren will miss you too 🤍🤍🤍 Thank you for everything! ❤️The most handsome man I’ve ever known.

    Dad you were and you always will be a significant part of my life. I know you are just a peek over my shoulder if you want to be. You lived your life until it got too much to carry in pain and God called you home. I love you more than you could have ever known on this Earth. Oh how dear you are to me. I got our pictures now. Hope you don’t mind. They knew you were coming. Tell them all hello for me. You know I love you.
