Memories Timeline


  1. The world didn’t deserve a man like you, yet we were lucky enough to be blessed in your presence for approximately fifty three years. Your generosity and selflessness was overwhelming and constant, yet now that you’re gone sometimes I wish you were a bit selfish in an attempt to find your own happiness. I love you. I miss you. But I know you are now free. I just wish you could’ve seen how much I was trying to help you spread your wings and fly the entire time you were here. You are strong and you are loved. Always. I love you forever papa. <3
