Loving daughters

Posted at 11:12am
We turn thanks y'all,
for that endearing southern drawl;
For the stories and wisdom spoke,
for all of the laughter and jokes;
For those loving, little schemes,
and for cheering on all of our teams;
For the Kentucky memories,
and always being there for "G";
For doting on every pet,
and those phone calls we'll never forget;
With hearts that will always be true,
we turn thanks, Daddy, ...for you.
