My dad was an amazing father. He taught me many lessons of life. He was always there for me in the good and bad times. He also loved helping people. My heart is broken into a million pieces and I will always remember him. My life will have a missing piece forever. The only comfort I have is knowing he is not suffering anymore. I love you dad and will always miss you.
