Nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his little princess, Amber. He enjoyed playing with her and doing anything to make her laugh. He was a great daddy to Amber and the two of them will be missed very much.
Amber enjoyed little tea parties, jumping on Granny and Grandpa’s bed, spinning ‘round and ‘round, playing hide ‘n seek, and taking bike rides to the park on the back of her daddy’s bicycle.
Amber loved shopping and even at the young age of three-years-old, was quite good at it. She enjoyed singing along with the radio while taking car rides, and watching Nick, Jr. TV. Some of her favorite shows are Dora the Explorer, Despicable Me, Cinderella and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
