No words can express how much I miss you. You made me laugh, cry, and everything in between. You mean everything to me and I am so sorry you never made it out. You were the best Godfather, husband, father, son, uncle, brother, and cousin ever. Daddy misses you so much and he hurts everyday. Not a day go by that he doesn't wish you were here. If I would have known the last time I would see you would be at my 7th birthday party, I would have never left your side. I wish I was here the day you came to visit me, mommy, and daddy. I would have never gone with Aunt Rara. I long to see you and I wish you could be here with us to celebrate every birthday, christmas, easter, and new year. I miss Jen too, so much. All I can remember is her saying "my daddy is missing and they don't know how to find him" all I could think was they would find you, alive. You were so strong and I wish you could have held on longer. Now that I am 14, I still can't forget. I remember everything that happened that day. Where I was, what I was doing, who I wished I was with. I didn't think daddy was coming home. When he did I was relieved, but wondered about you. I found out you were missing at Amanda's birthday from Jen. I knew it was bad. Months after they still didn't find you, I had no hope left. All I could picture was a funeral. I still remember your wake, how there was a picture of your car on your coffin. I asked there to be small toy cars I picked out to be in your coffin and they are still there. I remember on the day of your funeral daddy dressed up in full Police uniform to honor you. They only thing that kept playing in my mind was the bagpipes. Every time I hear them, your all I think about. 7 years later, everything is still so clear in my mind. I love you and miss you so much. I will see you again soon.
