  1. Daddy, this is your sissy, I will miss you dearly. Although you are my father in law, you have treated me more like a daughter than my own family. I will miss our fights and hugs, which were always so very special. We argued but we loved harder. Your love always overpowered your stubbornness, LOL! Thank you for always calling me and trusting me for advice, that was so very special for me. I will miss the times when we shared God’s word and prayed. I will keep loving your son, Jacob, whom God blessed me with in marriage. Every moment I spent with you always reminded me of mom, your wife, whom I loved dearly as well. I will keep my promise to mom and to you.

    Your daughter,
    Christine Thurston
