  1. Cheyanne says:

    My entire life, all I knew was he was my dad. As I got older I realized he wasn’t just my dad. He was the person I went to for help. He was the person I went to when I broke my ankle (the first time…), when I wanted to learn how to play the piano he told me I could do it if I just put my mind to it. Growing up my nickname was “Stinky”. I used to get so mad when he called me that because I thought he was trying to tell me that I smelled in the nicest way possible. He gave me that nickname because when I was a baby my mom made him change my diapers. It is September 14, 2021. Almost four years later and to this day I would give my life just so he could have his back. Even if it was for just a day. So everyone he loved and who loved him could see him happy and healthy one last time and get to say goodbye. I never got to say goodbye and I regret it every single day. There isn’t a day where I don’t think of it. He might not have been my father but he was my dad and I am forever great full that he raised me. Without him I wouldn’t be the person I am today. You are FOREVER missed by many and so loved more than anyone could ever imagine. I love you daddy,
    Love, Stinky♥️
