My dad. I love you so much! I can't believe that I'm writing this. I was your Precious (you often said that in a Gulom, Lord of The Rings voice). You are my hero. I can call you, and you would have so many encouraging words... even when you needed them yourself. I appreciate everything you have done for me and my siblings. Every memory, and tradition I have with my own little family, I got from you. I thank you for becoming a role model for my husband, and for being a AWESOME grandpa to my kids. Judah Duane, as you called him misses you a lot. Ryann yells "baba" (grandpa) everytime she sees your picture. They love you so much! I love yo
@Precious. Speaking of our "little Precious", Ryann posted before I was done :). Anyway, that's all for now. I sure do love you!
Your baby girl.

Dad, never thought I would find myself submitting a post on your obituary, but here goes. I love you this much with my arms outstretched, the warmth of your hugs, your voice and your scent. The songs you would sing the lessons you'd share the popcorn you'd make and the waves in your hair. I'm grateful that you took the time to show me things that I otherwise wouldn't find, but most of all I thank you for Sharing your love, faith and joy in Christ Jesus I miss you but ill see you later.
As well as sharing your love for music.
