  8. Wow… It’s been over 6 years since you passed away. I know It’s very selfish of me to wish you where still here with all your loved ones, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss you. I know you’re where God needs you to be, and I also know that means you’re safe, happy, and at peace. Who would have known that meeting you would have such a beautiful impact on my life? Our days where far from lavish, but they where perfectly authentically what God wanted them to be. I’m not sure if you knew we both needed each other during a certain season in our lives, but I know I sure didn’t. All I know is that you’re with me everyday. Even though I don’t always talk about you, I think of you often. You taught me key essentials that I will never take for granted. I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older that you where there during a time I needed you the most. God works in mysterious ways. He is so AMAZING! Thank you Lord for allowing me the opportunity to get to know your child. Thank you for the time we spent together, the lessons he was able to teach me that I hold close and dear to my heart even today, and the love I was able to allow into my heart. You weren’t Scrap to me, you weren’t even Patrick, you where my dad. The day I found out you passed away was a day I’ll never forget. A piece of me died with you. We always think we have time, until we don’t. I wish I told you how much you mean to me and how much I love you. Thank you for loving me though the good and bad, thank you for being a listening ear, thank you for being my teacher, thank you for being so understanding, and thank you for making a difference. I love you today, tomorrow, and forever. I’ll see you soon… Love You….
