Dakota, we miss you! I have gone from day to day, wondering what will bring the next set of tears since the accident. It is mostly tears of joy because of where you are at. There has been a tear that ripped this enormous hole right through the middle of my heart.

I know you are in a better place, but the pain is still here on earth, not like in heaven. I am trying my best to make it to see you.

I have said it before...Dakota was an angel sent from heaven. I am so glad you entertained me, Dakota. That means God has let me know, He is watching over me. It was a great honor for me to have served you. I am so glad that at my best friend's funeral, I found Jesus back in 1999.

I know that I am not perfect, but I haved reared my children at church where all chidren need to be reared.

I can still recall the last day I spent with Dakota. We were helping some friends out, putting window panes in. I was inserting the small pin that holds the window in place, when I accidently crack the pane. And of coarse it was the last one.

Dakota, my ground man, looked up at me, and with a serious look on his face said, "Dad, you have some super glue in your tool box, you need it." Such innocent remarks from a child makes all trouble go away. I miss you MY SON!! Please keep us in prayer. I also had two other children in the accident, doing good, but still need prayers.

Thank You Very Much
