I sit and look back to how far I can remember,
And you are always there next to me.
Each and everyday you were helping me grow up,
And making me be the best that I can be.
Your love was forever strong, your cuddles forever tight.
Everyday since I was born, your love was always in sight.
I will always be your baby girl, and you will always be my Dad.
I know I will always be the luckiest, to have the best Dad
Any girl could have had.
He was the life of the party
Bill had a kind and giving spirit.
He didn’t meet any stranger,
He was well known county wide.
Bill was that guy who would give
You the shirt off his back.
He loved his Family, Friends, and horses.
