If I only had five minutes the day you passed away,
I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say.
I never got to tell you how much you mean to me,
Or that you were the best dad, better than any man could be.
The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I loved you,
and kept you on the phone.
If I only had five minutes,
the morning you passed away,
I'd give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I'd tell you that I don't think I could live without you,
not even for a while.
I'd kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it's okay to go
And tell you that I'll miss you,
more than you'll ever know.
But you were gone so quickly,
One last car ride you'd take.
Before you even knew it,
you were standing at heavens gate.
Now God has called upon you,
It's time to get your wings.
To leave this life behind you,
And enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.
So wait for me in Heaven Dad,
Dont let me come alone.
The day the angels come for me,
Please be there to bring me home.
Love, Brittany and Misty

I miss you everyday. I love you and will always be so grateful to have been your little sister.
You were a sweetheart to everyone. You had such a gentle spirit. Terry said that someone just asked about you the other day and they were very sad to hear that you had passed away. I think about you, Tommy, mom and dad all the time.
