This is Jennifer (Jen), Nick's adopted daughter.
Daddy, I just wanted to say I love you and miss you! Oh, how I long to hear your voice saying I'm your little girl and feel your arms as you embrace me tightly.
It's been 7 1/2 yrs since you went home to be with Jesus, yet it seems a lifetime to me.
So many things have changed since you've gone, and I just don't know if I can remain strong.
The things I'd willingly sacrifice just to see you and mother again, even for a short time. To get that one last piece of precious advice, but to cause you to suffer once again, I could not.
God needed the best, that's why He took you. Now your singing in that Great Angel Band. Our memories I'll always cherish and hope that someday I'll see you again.
I Love & Miss You Daddy !!
