    I will never say goodbye Daddy
    because I know this is not the end for us to see each other.
    You will only be going to a place where there’s no pain nor suffering.
    For now we need to go in separate ways.
    I remember how your arms hold me and give me strength.
    You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.
    You were my very best friend.
    In my triumphs you were always proud.
    I’m very grateful and proud to call you my dad.
    Here deep inside my heart you’ll always be.
    I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time.
    I remember the last time I held your hand and how you looked at me in the eyes.
    If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go.
    I felt the world stop and my heart stop beating when I knew you were gone…..
    How I wish I was only dreaming.
    Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes, I couldn’t speak for awhile.
    Thank you Dad….
    For always understanding, listening, caring, and loving me your whole life.
    The greatest gift God gave me was YOU…….. my Dad…
    It’s difficult to let you go but I must…
    I must return the gift God gave me…
    Till then;
    See you in Heaven………

    I love you daddy and I will miss you everyday until we meet again!
    Love you little girl

    Ray I have been a very lucky person to have been blessed to have you as my Godfather. You provided me with direction, support and a shoulder to cry on especially was I was little. You always knew the right thing to say, “honey”. I will still look to you for help, it will now be as an angel looking down on me and providing protection. I love you and will miss you!!!!
