I did not know this was posted. My final copy of my speech was forgotten and Ive since updated it to what I didnt have. Thank you dulci :heart: My dad was so skilled with his hands creating something strong like him. He was devoted and proud of the things that mattered most. I had no preparation and I feel cheated having my father stolen from me so early on in life. He walked my brother side by side through boy scouts along with my mothers father, while feeding my forever changing interests from singing to cheerleading to soccer and guitar. He was my best friend, Ive been blessed with parents I can call my best friends since Ive grown as a parent myself. Thank you to those involved in the beauty of such a tragedy and loss :heart::pray:

Life is short, they tell you but dont prepare you. How to you prepare for the loss of a father, brother, uncle, friend? My dad was not an easy man; nor his father, his brother, or many of us. But he was a good man. He meant well, rolled with the punches and never let the bad in life take him out. Hard working my dad accomplished many things. He went from making my clothes, welding, roofing, building all sorts of impressive structures still standing to this day. He taught me lessons I dont know he ever knew I fully learned, yet used as I too rolled with the punches. My dad was proud of me and my brother, aswell as the rest of his family. Family was family to him and he treated many with the same respect he did the family he so valued. When my parents split I was torn because I was so blessed with parents who were not only great at, but dedicated to being so involved in their kids lives growing up. Life is beautiful, death is cruel. Short bittersweet and ever changing, nothing changed when it came to my fathers love. I know my dad was proud of me, my brother, his family and more.... but I dont think he ever got to realize how proud of him I was. I love you, Dad ***** the real, unstreamed speech.
