Condolence & Memory Journal

I don't know where to begin . We always had good times with my dad. There was never a full moment around him . He was just so goofy . But he was a excellent father. I never wanted for nothing. He even did jibs and took the family so we can have fun . I will never find another man like my dad . God I miss you so bad daddy . I love you to the moon and back . Till we see each other again dad. Tell everybody I said I love them and miss them . RIP daddy .
