Dad, you were very funny, so lovable and always cared about your kids. You always told us that you would do anything for us. That’s something that I’m going to miss hearing. I’m going to miss you dad. Just keep looking after us. I’m happy that you are in a better place. You’re not hurting anymore. I love you and I’m going to miss you Twin. Love Jackie.
