    What can I say, things like I’ll miss you, I love you, and the million other things people say just don’t seem adequate. You’ve been such an important part of my life for so long I can’t imagine it without you.
    I was just a kid when I met you, and woo’d your daughter with my irresistible charm. You welcomed me into your life, and I’m forever grateful, even if it took 15 more years to learn my name.
    I watched day in and out how you were always there, and always put your family first. How you loved unconditionally the people lucky enough to have you there. I’m so incredibly lucky to have really gotten to know you. When I think of what it means to be a father and husband you are the first person who I think of, every single time.
    This barely scratches the surface of what you meant to me, and this is why traditional condolences and thoughts just seemed to fall short.
    You are probably the most important male influence in my life, and you meant so much more to me than just my father in law. To me you were a father, grandfather, and maybe the most important, my friend.
    Thank you for being exactly who you are,
    Love always,
    John
