I am being selfish. I want you back daddy. I don't want you in pain but I want you back. I need more time with you. I am gonna miss all the times we had together. All the laughter and the tears from laughing so hard. So many great memories. Sitting on the cooler while you and another carried it to the beach. All the travels, Disneyland, SeaWorld and many other fun places we went to. Dancing and the casino. You couldn't be in a room 2 mins with out making a friend. Memories go on and on. Always smiling. If someone did not have a smile, you made sure they had one before you left. Semper Fi daddy. I love you so much.

Daddy I love you so much. I have so many good memories of us but one of my favorites is the stories you shared with me while you were in the hospital and dancing at the MVG. I dont know why you were taken from us so soon and I know you are no longer in pain but I want you back. Our time wasnt enough and there were so many things you wanted to do.
