You will be greatly missed but we all knew how much you loved your family and grandchildren. What made you so special was that you cared for people just like you did your family. We couldn’t have ever asked for a better dad, you were and always will be my hero. I will cherish every moment we had together and I will continue to carry on the legacy that you worked so hard to build. I will see you again someday, but for now I have to make sure everyone down here is taken care of.

I love you Dad – Your son, Bobby
