You were the only constant in my life! I can truly say you were the rock of our family! You were the most hardworking man I have ever known, if it wasn’t for you I would not be the women I am today. Throughout my life if there was anything I have ever needed you made sure I had it. I promise I will take care of grandma like if you were still here! You will forever be in my heart and I will love you till the day I day! I cannot wait till we all can be together again! I know you are with OJ, and a small piece of my heart can rest knowing you are now caring for him like you always did! I love you more than words can ever explain!
