Dad I've missed you. August 
20th 2002 was the last time I 
heard your voice, it marks the 
last time I saw your face, it was 
the last time I got to say I love 
you. How I wish I could bring 
you back to life. There's forever 
a hole in my heart. I look to the 
sky and wonder if your in 
heaven waiting for me fishing 
pole in hand and a cooler full of 
coors lights on ice? Until we 
meet again. I hope I have a 
good story to tell you at heavens 
fishing hole, while we smoke 
our Marlboros and sip cold 
beer. I miss you dad, it's been 
11 years today. Wait for me at 
the gates. I'm ready for our 
fishing trip
