    How do you say good bye to one of the most amazing man I know.? I wish I had 5 more minutes to let you know how much I love you and how much I appreciated everything you did for me. You weren’t just my father, you are my hero. I only hope that I can make you proud of me. I am going to miss you but never forget you. I love you
