Dad, we will miss you very much down here, but are glad you are not suffering anymore. It hurt to see & know you were in pain & it hurts that you left. You will be loved forever.
He will certainly be missed and my message to him would be; I miss you and am going to miss those lengthy conversations that we used to have. But I know that you are in a better place where there no more pain and no more sorrow
