Thank you for being the best dad ever. Im going to miss your happy birthday calls to me. The calls Ill miss the most are the ones that I missed. You always left me a message. Most of the time, you were singing happy birthday to me on my answering machine or voice mail. Ill treasure this years message that I have on voice mail. Thats one thing I can say you loved your children. Even though I knew the day would come, but it hurts so much. Havent told you in a while.... I love you old man. I see everyday when I look on the mirror ( blessed that I look like you). Dont wait on me.... Ill see you when I get there. Love you forever and always, Johnathan Dee Swearingen
