Dad, I loved you the day I was born and loved you until the day you closed your eyes and went on to eternal life. I will continue to love you until we meet again. My most beautiful memory of you was the day, Friday, March 28th, 2003, when you walked me down the aisle to pass me on to my husband Konrad. Then our dance... That is a memory that I will hold dear to my heart forever. I love you Dad. -Amy
