“Happy Birthday Dad,❤️ I miss your smile, laugh, and big bear hugs. Happy Birthday to the best movie buddy I could have ever asked for.
I will always remember our late night drives to the movie theater with the windows rolled down and listening to our favorite songs.
I love you forever and always. Always, Slim.”
