I had to do an art project for work this week. Its teamwork month. And as I sat working on it it reminded me of the time you had to do a display for your produce stand it was for California Oranges and grapefruits. I remember helping you look for a dead little sapling tree and helping you drag it in the house. and cutting dark orange and light orange circles and green leaves for days. and while I was riding home from where else dollar tree for a craft supply run it hit me. And as Mike drove us home I turned to him and said It just feels so weird to not have daddy to bounce my crafty ideas off of. there will be no more pinterest surprise messages with crafty things you thought I might like to make or things I hadn't yet seen that you had posted on your account. I will be using your roses to create spectacular art pieces you will be proud of. I will make ya proud Daddy. a piece of you will always be with me as long as I create and use the talent you gave me. I love ya and a miss ya. but im not gonna say Goodbye cuz I will see you again. I will see you in the garden each spring as I plant my flowers and veggies, in the summer when I watch the fireworks burst into the sky on my birthday, And in the fall in the cornstalks Halloween displays and each Thanksgiving as I prepare the family meal. and most of all in the winter as I craft the family Christmas gift to the family bake the Christmas cookies and watch the Christmas movies. You are so much a part of who I am. Thank you for loving me unconditionally. for your patience and gift of laughter. And I know you made good on that promise ya made me in that hospital bed. Love you!

It was an honor to care for you the last hours of your Life. You were and are the most important man in my life. You loved me unconditionally and were always there to route meon in all of my many ventures you supported me in my biggest trials in life and never let me give up on myself. You taught me to live life humbly and to always extend a helping hand when I could. to fight for my beliefs and to laugh in the face of fear. You had a beautiful heart right until the very end. I am proud to be called your daughter. I know the celebration up in heaven was a happy one with all of those who were sent before you . And I know you will be waiting with open arms when I come home to you again. Momma is in wonderful hands as we are all there to care for her. Rest easy Daddy. I love you a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck you are my greatest partner buddy and pal.I will continue to create beautiful art like you taught me. Sing a silly song when I have to and Cook and bake those famous treats you used to bake. Love your Baby daughter. Shelly
