To my dad, Brian Truax, you left us too soon! But I guess god knew you were tired & he needed you more. I never thought I would have to face the day that I'd live my life without you, but here I am. You were a fighter, a warrior & the best father a girl could ever have! Life will never be the same without you, but everyday I hope that it will get a little bit easier. To my mom, my brother & my entire family, we lost a great man! As we mourn our loss, lets never lose sight of the wonderful memories we have of & with my dad! I love you all
