---- He was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, friend and husband. He loved mushroom hunting, fishing, and just relaxing with a beer in his hand. I am his daughter Leslie (Rosie) Fraley. Taken from me, I'm sitting here in my room, looking at your picture. Wondering why you couldn't be a part of my future. Uncontrollable tears stream down my face, while my heart beat starts to race. Asking God why he took you from my life, it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife. I still needed you here you were the one to make everything so clear. you are a part of me and I am a part of you when you died a part of me died too. I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love until the day you went to heaven above. Even though I can't see, I know your up there watching over me. I miss you more and more everyday and all I can do is pray. In my heart you shall forever remain. In memory of my dad, If I could write a story It would be the greatest ever told Of a kind and loving father Who had a heart of gold If could write a million pages But still be unable to say, just how Much I love and miss him Every single day I will remember all he taught me I'm hurt but won't be sad Because he'll send me down the answers And he'll always be MY DAD .
