    We always think we have more time and put off saying things we need to say and that is my biggest regret. I was always there for my dad but there were things I would have loved to say to him. He used to get on to me and my sister about putting things off instead of going ahead and doing it.
    My daddy was in the military and very proud of his time spent in the Army but his greatest accomplishment and title was that of our Daddy!!!! Our daddy was also our mother and he raised four children into productive adults. Daddy taught us to work hard, have integrity, morals and to be good to each other and take care and respect our elders. We took care of our Grandmother and then our dad and neither ever saw a nursing home and went to Heaven from their homes, Thank God!!!!!
    Unfortunately, his funeral was very small because all of the family that my dad grew up with have all went to Heaven and daddy didn’t have a lot of friends because his life from about 44 years old, was 100% devoted to taking care of his children. There was no time to hang out and make friends, all he cared about was us and he used to tell us that the only people he cared about being around was us. We will all be together again one day and until then I will love and miss my dad very much!!!!!!
