We hope that we did u n dad proud with the burials we still haven't engraved dad's name in yet because of money but that is definately going to happen soon. I love you Jessica loves you we love both of you. Thank you for giving us such a beautiful childhood that any other child would be jealous of. You both were our heroes our hearts our everything.
