    You have been in alot of my dreams lately daddy and everytime I wake up in tears knowing I can’t just go hug you and you tell me it was just a dream and to go back to sleep cuz Keagan would be up soon (lol) the boyz miss you so much they look at your picture on their walls every day and tell me how much they miss you. It hasn’t gotten any easier AT ALL and it probably never will to be honest but I know your looking down on me and keeping me safe during all the craziness that’s going on in the world now. I couldn’t have a better guardian angel. Give shayshay and ash a biiiiig hug for me cuz I’m sure they see you alot (you know what loves driving you crazy lol) I can’t wait to be able to see you again daddy πŸ˜­πŸ’” iloveyou to the farthest star and beyond πŸ’«

    Keagan is starting to learn how to ride a bike dad! He’s getting so big and he’s SUPER smart and funny and of course has an attitude like us lol he points at your picture in the hall everyday and says “keagan papa” I know he was a baby baby when you left but I swear he remembers you and I’m pretty sure he sees you around the house cuz he will randomly start laughing like he’s being tickled and will say “stop it papa” πŸ˜‚ we all miss you so much! But I know your still around and still watching over us all! Weloveyou old man πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
