    Dad, there is no other love and beautiful bond that is inspired between a father and daughter. God blessed me with a father that had courage, intelligence, strength, kindness, patience, and an insurmountable love for his family. Thank you for always encouraging me to realize that my goals in life has no boundaries; it’s your love and guidance that has taken me there. Although our heavenly father has taken you to his kingdom, it’s your loving spirit and precious memories that I keep in my heart now and forever! Until we meet again, my unforgettable daddy (love)! Love your daughter, Lisa
