My life is so much brighter with you in it. I love you.

Molly Pierret

To our daughter Molly Pierret. You alone will have the stars as no one else has them. In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night. Only you will have the stars that can laugh.

I know a lot of people out there would say that their dad is the best in the world, but I am 100% positive that MY dad is the best in the world.

When he was old enough, 16, he would cross the US border to work and send more money back home in Mexico. My dad has been working since the age of 7 and continues to do so. My dad has provided us with
