I had to say goodbye to the strongest, bravest, most loving, caring, amazing man I've ever known. He could lie with the straightest face, would spit out nonsense answers to any question you asked and had a temper a mile long. But when it came to his family, there was nothing more important. Nothing came before his family, and it was because of that dedication he had to us that we had to let him go today.
Goodbye, daddy. 62 was far too young, considering everyone on your side of the family is ridiculously healthy and lives till they're ancient. 24 hours ago, I never thought I'd be saying those words. But goodbye, daddy.
I love you more than words will ever be able to express.
