    Dearest Dad,

    Thank you for being the best father to me. You worked hard all your life to provide for our family because you loved us very much. I will miss hearing of your daily adventures with mom – the love of your life. I will miss hearing “what’s for supper?” just after you’ve finished lunch. We knew your love of food, too.

    I know in time my many fond memories of you will outweigh my sorrow – the time you, mom and I spent the day at the Butterfly Place; trying out different lunch restaurants on Friday’s; and always praising my cooking (when we both knew I couldn’t tell a beef from a pork loin roast!). I will never forget what you used to always tell me: “you can’t change the stripes of a tiger.”

    I will miss you, Dad. Thank you for being my dad – my father.

    Your daughter
