Daddy you and I had an inseparable bond. That not even death can tear apart. You let me know how much you loved me in every way and everything you did. I love you more than life itself. You taught me everything from roofing, to floating sheetrock, painting, how to drive, how to shoot a gun, how to be a loving, caring and giving person. And you never let me forget that God loves me even when life had me down. There’s just one thing I don’t know how to do, and that’s live without you. I’m broking, lost and empty without you and will be till we meet again. I love you daddy. Love your baby girl Amber Jackson / Ambo
