Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen

Dad, You loved us from the start without reason you always put us first without fail. You loved us tho life took us in different directions. Your love for us never stopped and you always did your best to keep us from losing our way. You taught us how to ride a bike and tried to instill respect, honesty and love. You gave us all your love. On this day we come to celebrate the love you shared and the joy you brought to everyone you came across because you knew no strangers. There is no doubt that when God called you home, that everyone of us, Dad, will miss you more than there are stars in the skies. Deeper and wider than any ocean is how big the void is without you, Dad. But we know you are smiling down on us. I know you are getting to know our beloved sister, Amanda, and as sad as we are we are also glad to know she is getting to have time with you Dad. We know you are strolling down those golden streets and this isn’t goodbye this is only the beginning. Until we are all reunited, give Amanda big hugs and kisses from all of us. We love you so very much. See ya soon, love you Dad, you are the greatest.
