A LETTER TO MY FATHER

RIGHT NOW I DONT NO HOW TO FEEL I CAN ADMIT I AM UPSET MAD HURT BUT I UNDERSTAND 
THE PAIN IS GONE YOU LEFT SOME BIG SHOES TO FILL BUT I THINK I,M WEARING THEM WELL I 
NO I CAN NEVER BE THE MAN YOU WAS BUT IF I CAN GET HALF WAY THERE IT WILL BE A BIG 
ACCOMPLISHMENT DAD I ADMIRE YOU SO MUCH THE THINGS I SEEN YOU GO THREW THE 
AVERAGE MAN COULD,NT ENDURE I WATCHED YOU BOUNCE BACK FROM SO MUCH I WATCHED 
YOU FIGHT THE BIGGEST FIGHT OF YOUR LIFE THE BATTLE WITH CANCER IN MOST PEOPLE 
CASE WE PROBALY WOULD OF GAVE UP GOT DOWN ON OUR SELVES BUT YOU DID,NT YOU 
FOUGHT IT TO THE END YOU SHOWED ME THE MEANING OF COURAGE I WATCHED YOU BUILD 
A LOT OF THINGS BUT THE BEST OF ALL IS OUR FAMILY A STRONG FAMILY STARTS WITH THE 
PARENTS AND I THINK YOU AND MOM DID A WONDERFUL JOB CONSIDERING WHAT YOU GUYS 
HAD TO WORK WITH 11 KIDS I NO WE WAS,NT THE BEST KIDS A PARENT COULD ASK FOR BUT 
YOU HUNG IN THERE AND I LOVE YOU FOR THAT YOU SHOWED ME THE TRUE MEANING OF 
WHAT A MAN SHOULD BE AND I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY 
HEART I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND SPEAK OF YOU TO ANYONE WHO WOULD LESTEN 
THANKS POP
