"My Dad, the greatest dad & Papa anyone could ever be blessed with! Being his eldest daughter I was blessed to have had 44 years with him! He worked hard always to privide. He was one in a million. Hel loved the Florida Gators, his lotto and scratch offs, my mom and a few beers of course lol! He was an AMAZING sidekick, lol, to my daughter, his youngest grandaughter Chloe. They were kindered souls with their daily trips to McDonalds for her chicken nuggets and to Winn Dixie where they both knew everybody. I love that they spent so much time together and she acquired his demeanor and I thank God for that! Daddy, thank you for being the man. Father and grandfather you were. You were larger than life and NO ONE compares I know you are enjoying "Just another day in paradise"!! You live in us all. I know you will be forever watching over us all. Rest in Peace and we will be reunited one great day! We love and miss you forever!"
