  7. Hey daddy I know you are always with me and I love you. Hope to see you one day. I will always remember you no matter what goes on through out my life. I know that you are always with me through everything. Love you and miss you bunches!! Love you daddy!! I will never forget that day. You came down to fish with us on a camping trip, then you were messing around with joe and then the next second you were in your knees and gone. Even though I had just turned 10 years old I will never forget the things we did together like go on mystery hunts and fishing and hunting. I love you and miss you lots. I still have the note on my dry erase board that says, ” I love you and miss you daddy!!” From the day you pasted away. I stayed in my room crying for hours everyday wondering if that was real or if it was just a dream. I’m almost 12 now and I miss you so much!! I love you and I will NEVER EVER forget you no matter what!! Hope your having a great time in heaven!! Love you and miss you lots!! I still remember what you always called me “Dozer” Love you!!

    Love, Jaelynn (your daughter)

    Jaelynn Forrest
