    Dad ts been over 45 days and I can’t even bring myself to except that ur not here anymore I still call u on the phone hoping u will pick up I just want to hear your voice. And it tears me apart that I can’t hear u say u love us and u will see us soon. I can’t do this without u dad I’m falling apart really bad. I’m trying so hard to be strong and I can’t do it. I need u so bad. Why did u leave us why? Nothing makes any sense . The only thing I’m holding onto is that u will be who greets me when I get to heaven is it pretty there? Mayci still asks when ur coming back we had to tell her that God wanted u to go on vacation cuz she wasn’t accepting that u had passed away bless her heart she said but he’s my best friend what do I do now? I miss you so much and I jjst want u to know that u were the best dad any girl could of asked for u will always be have my whole heart in my eyes u were and always be perfect!!! You were my whole world and now I don’t have u and I’m so lost this is the worst feeling I’ve ever felt. I love you dad until we meet again.

    So sorry to hear about Don’s departure to a better place. He was someone both of us admired as a friend and his knowledge of cars. May he rest in peace knowing he will be missed.
