this was a bit of a hard lo to do but i finally finished and can't wait to give it to Baylee (little girl in the pic). I may wait until she gets a little older bc she is only 8 now. John passed away this past Feb of leukemia. He was diagnosed a year prior and passed away almost to the date that he passed. I went to college with John and then became friends with his girlfriend and was real close with his daughter. Ok, I am done rambling...Journaling reads: sweetie, i am so sorry that you have to go through this everyday at such a young age. i know you miss your daddy and it is so hard to explain to you now that he got sick and had to leave us. it hurts my heart everyday to think about you and the struggles that you will go through from day to day without him. i hope that you can find faith in the lord that he is in a better place now and that he doesn't have to suffer and be sick anymore. you are a strong little girl and your mom is an amazing woman and i know that she will do what is best to make you have an amazing life. you know that we all love you and will do whatever it takes to help you understand. please know that he is looking down on you from heaven making sure that you are being taken care of every single day.
