Dad, I love you so much. Although the last few months have been very trying to say the least, we have both experienced some of the best times ever together. I know you are in a beautiful place . Rest well Rolmop, Enjoy your life where ever you are stationed. God is with you now and you are eternally safe. For sure I will think of you often each and every day. I will love you forever. Someday, we will meet again. Until then, I will keep the files up to date, and the rubber bands on.

love you, Bill
