Thank you for teaching me how to be the man I am today. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I love you so much and I am going to miss you.

I am going to miss our fishing trips together., I am also going to miss our drives down the road listening to music and doing things like PBR.
Thank you for pushing me to finish school and pushing me to be where I wanted to be. I love you so much Dad.
Thank you, Coby
Letter from Jada:
Thank you so much dad for teaching me everything I have ever been taught. Thank you for making sure I’m always doing what I’m supposed to be doing and always making sure I am able to grow up to be the best possible version of me. Dad I will always love you. I miss you more than you could ever know. I’m going to miss working on out little project car (my Car). I’m going to miss you yelling at me for being 1 minute late getting to the house and also when we would go fishing and I would beg you to put the worm on my hook. I took up all your fishing time away and you tell me no because we both know I would never touch that worm.
Dad these moments I will forever cherish along with you coming to McDonalds to get your half and half tea and our little competitions in bowling even though we all knew you were the pro Bowler. Dad you will forever be my hero and the man I will forever look up to. Dad we are going to all miss you more than you will forever know. We love you Dad!
