    Dad, “POPS” You were a good Dad, provided for us and taught us many things over the years! You will be missed so very much, more than words can express! In my heart I will remember all the fun times we had on bike trips, racing, and all the holiday’s we shared together as Dad and daughter. It has been a struggle for you for several years and I know in my heart that you no longer have to struggle. Thank you for everything and you will be in my heart FOREVER!
