This is the poem I initially wrote for my personal self to help me through the rough time of losing my father. I read this at my Dad's memorial service and this poem And this is how I remember my dad last, but only the best of memories of him are in my head now. I remember my Dad as the hardworking, happy, and the funny person he was. He will be missed and loved by all of us, and please lets all keep him in our prayers.

Send to: Heaven
For: My Dad
From: You’re Baby, Annie
Taken to soon from us, to sudden and unexpected,
We weren’t ready, our Goodbyes and Sorry’s, weren’t reflected
All I have now is the memories of us,
Only Twenty-Four years, that wasn’t enough
I want you to know, I remember the good and the bad
But all flustered in my mind now, is the haziness of sad
For the past few years, I know you’ve been sick
But it makes me mad that you could have been “fixed”
We all wanted you to be healthy, and everyone had told you
And all I have now is the guilt, because I wish I did better to show you
But Dad I was scared, I tried to stay numb while staying away
Because I knew you weren’t my Dad that I grew up with everyday
There was a stranger in your body as the sickness slowly took you and your mind,
And when I looked into your eyes, I searched for my Dad, anything of you that I could find
It’s over now, you’re not suffering and pain free too
You’re at peace, with your other loved ones right beside you
But I guess I’m selfish, because I wish you were here
I wish the pain and emptiness I feel now, would just disappear
Time will move forward, and our lives will keep going
But it will never be the same without you watching your Grandkids growing
So I’m asking you Dad please watch over us and always stay by our side, until we meet again at the
Heaven gates, I hope you are the one that will be my guide. I love you Dad.
