Dearest Daddy---Although my heart breaks that I can no longer spend time with you personally, I am also happy to know you are able to do the things you could no longer do here, and I know Mama was there waiting for you--because I am sure she has asked God several times, "Where's Charles?" That is a reunion I would have loved to see. Thank you daddy for always making me stop and just breathe when I let things overwhelm me and always loving me unconditionally. But most of all, thank you for loving my mama with every ounce of your being. I love you daddy, give Mama a kiss from me, but I won't say goodbye--I'll just say "I'll see you later"!!
