    He always considered me as a daughter and to me he was my dad. A great man, father and grandfather. We always thought you would be there and wish we could’ve had fathers day together this year like we planned. Gone before his time. I will never forget our memories. We love you forever ❤️❤️❤️ #ESCO4L
