  1. I love you daddy and you will be missed so much. I am not looking at it as you losing your battle with cancer but more as you standing up and fighting back because you stopped it from taking over the rest of your life and consuming those around you. Forever and always…your oldest baby girl….
    Love always

  2. I am so sorry for your loss ….He was a wonderful man. I have lots of good things to say about him. He was a kind and very loving man. He had a heart of gold. Alva as a kid, he never felt any pain. I use to watch all of them and 1 day he made me so mad I went to beat his butt and he would just laugh at me, so I got his sister Kim to help hold him down. I went and got a board and put that to his butt, he cried then, but when I let him go he just laughed and said that did not hurt I just wanted up; then he said, bye, see ya, and went out to ride his bike.
