Because of you I have never had to wonder what its like to be alone and unloved. I had experiences most can only dream of and memories nobody could ever replace. I have spend my entire life looking up to you hoping one-day I could be at least half the person you are. Your light still burns bright and i can only hope that parts of you will shine through me. You left before me but I'm going to spend the rest of my time doing my best to make it to the pearly gates into your arms again, but until that day I'll be loving you. Thank you for being the kindest, greatest man I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
