To my Dad,

You passed so suddenly and the miles between us too great for me to say goodbye in person. In your typical way, you wanted no fuss made on your passing, but I cannot let you go without you knowing that you have left a hole in my life, but fortunately it is filled with many memories. You believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. You instilled in me the ability to survive when I didn't feel I could. You touched my life and I believe you were greeted on the other side by family and friends who had gone on before you. You will be missed more deeply than you could ever realize.

Your Loving Daughter.

Submitted by daughter, Mary Platter.
