There aren't any words for the great hole in my heart created by your passing. I will love and miss you forever Daddy.

So many emotions right now. Having just lost our Mom in November, the loss of my Brother in January has left a very large hole in my heart, that will not soon be filled. "Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you." John 16:22
