I will never forget how you used to wake me up for school or we would go on our long bike rides and me and mom would argue over who got to ride first. You stepped up to be my daddy when I was in the six grade and I am grateful and I appreciate everything that youve done for me I will always be daddys little girl. You are the best daddy and the worlds bestest friend anyone could ever have. I just wish I had more time with you before you left me behind I miss you like crazy. I just wanna hang out in the man cave and have a jungle juice night one more time I miss my family so much its eating me alive. I love you daddy just know your my #1 fan??? I wish you was home daddy!!!
