We'll always remember that special smile,
that caring heart, that warm embrace, you always gave us.
You being there for Mom and us through good and bad times,
no matter what.
We'll always remember you Dad because
there’ll never be another one
to replace you in our hearts,
and the love we will always
have for you.
