  • Ashley Crittenden Posted September 29, 2022 8:51 AM

    Dad- I’ve known you since I was 5… Ambrose would always talk about you in school.. he literally admired you and thought you were untouchable.. He felt nobody could beat his dad!! when I finally met, you immediately became my dad. You always treated and called me your daughter. I will miss our talks, you telling me how much you love your “Lizzy Boo”, or you always reminding me that my husband owes you 50 cent. I hate our time was cut short; I love you dad. Your love and laughter will always be remembered.

    Love Always,
