“…Daddy, I’m afraid, won’t you stay a little while?
I never thought I’d see the day I had to say goodbye
Daddy, please don’t go, I can’t do this on my own
There’s no way that I can walk this road alone
Daddy grabbed my hand and said
Just ’cause I’m leavin’
It don’t mean that I won’t be right by your side
When you need me
And you can’t see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It’s okay, boy, I ain’t scared
I won’t be here, but I’ll always be right there
Even though I’m leavin’, I ain’t goin’ nowhere…”. ~Luke Combs~
I love you Daddy…
Blessed are they who weep for they shall be comforted. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family at this difficult time.
Benny and Maryann

Daddy, I miss you every day. I know that you are watching over me, but what I wouldn’t give to have one more day, one more song, one more hug, and one more I love you.
