  1. To my dad. I last saw you when I was 17 yrs old. As I got older I felt you were my missing piece to my life. I looked for you for years. When I found you, it was too late. I founded out you were gone two months after your passing. My heart hurts to know I missed that opportunity to have a relationship with you. Even though we didn’t know each other, I will always love you. Rest easy dad.
