  2. It’s so hard to say goodbye Dad I don’t know were to start.
    A thousands words running through my mind my heart hurts so much.
    I guess I should be glad that your time here has passed, because now your not in pain.
    You were so strong you did us proud, you fought right up until the end.
    Now I have to find the strength to battle through each day with out you.
    I know with time the pain will ease, because time heels all wounds they say. Your in my heart dad but things will never be the same with out you. You will always be my hero Dad and I love you and miss you so much.
