My dad was a very special man.He was a special father and
great grandfather. He was a person that could brighten up
a room when he walked in anywhere. This Father’s Day was very special and will never be forgotten as long as I live.

Our family (daughters, son-in-laws and grandchilden) got together and spent Father's Day with our dad. We went to Shoney's because he loved to eat there and we came back to my house and talked about all the good times we had growing up. I cherish that memory forever.

It is hard to accept the loss of a loved one, but we are taking one day at a time. My dad was a diabetic and we think he passed out at the wheel.

I talked to my dad on Thursday. The last thing he said to me was " I love you, Buddy." He always called us kids, Buddy. I never knew that would be the last time I would
talk to my dad. I know God wants the good people in Heaven
with him and I know he got a good one. Daddy, I will miss
you and one day I will see you again. Until then, I will hold
on to the memories of you in my heart.

Love you,

Terese Riley,
Your daughter

We miss you very much
Rest in peace.
