    I still miss you each and every day. I wish I was the last face you saw that day you went to be with the angels. I wish I had known you were sick. I hope you can find it in your heart to fogive me.
    I love you, your daughter, Debby Hayward

    Dad I was thinking of you today and crying. I still have tremendous guilt for not being there with you when you took your last breath. I know you loved me Daddy and I will always love you. I remember when you built that dog house for my puppy Jasper. Dad, I hope you forgive me. I hope you are looking down on me right now and see the tears I’m crying for you. I’ll be seeing you much later with Grandma Hayward and Jesus. Wish I could hug you right now. I love you Dad. Rest well with no more cancer. ????

    Dad I was thinking of you today wishing you were here to hold me and tell me it will all be ok. Family never tried to notify me you were sick and passed away. I know we were estranged but it didn’t mean I stopped loving you Daddy. I would give anything to go back and make it all better and you not be sick. I would have taken care of you Dad. I hope you are ok and not in pain anymore. I love you Dad to the moon. Your lil Punkin and Puddin.
