I still think about you often.  I miss you more than words can say and at times, I still cry.  Then I think about you. It feels as if it were yesterday, you were here.  Here for me to ask advice, here for me to share my hopes and dreams with, and most importantly just here.  You left to soon.  Children are never ready to let go of their parent.  For some reason, we think you will live forever.  And you know what, you will live forever in my heart.  I just wanted you to know how blessed I consider myself that I get to call you Dad.
