I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course,  I have kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, Which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day; And not to me only, but onto all them also that love his appearing. 

       - 2 Timothy 4:7-8 (KJV) 

To our father, I thank you for being the best father, grandfather, and best friend. For loving us all with everything you had. Continue to watch and love us until we see each other again. 

Love, Monica, Chandra, LaKiza
