    My dearest Daddio,
    I will miss you more than you could ever possibly know. I am a lot like you in so many ways. I am so grateful for the person you were. You taught me so many things about life and you always put your family first above everything else. You have always been there for me your whole life. It will be difficult without you.
    I have so many wonderful memories that we have created throughout our lifetime together. There’s too many to list them all. Here’s just a few. Working together as architect and designer, family vacations, guiding me how to buy my first new car, teaching me how to be a saver, showing me drawing tips, helping me buy my house, collecting stamps alongside you and in the most recent years watching you spend time enthusiastically with my children, your precious grandkids. Don’t worry dad, we will take care of mom, the love of your life. You were the best dad anyone could’ve ever hoped for. I hope you are at peace now. I love you. Until we meet again. Love your daughter xo Jen
