Your Dad was such a kind person. I was always jealous of Britt because your dad would always give honeysticks to you to take to the class and she would come home and tell me about it but I don’t think I ever got one. He was just always smiling and so friendly whenever you would bump into him. My heart aches for you Alyx. ❤️🙏
