    There will forever be a hole in heart now that you’re gone. The past 5 years were the hardest as a family, but I’m grateful you’re no longer in pain, and are now taking Shiva on daily walks with Grandpa Jones. My life will never be the same without you, Ryker will forever remember the fun times, and Mom… well “forever and 2 days”, right? You’re missed, loved… and you made an impact on this world. Thank you for being my Dad. ❤️
