To ìMy Captain McClaneî

Great victories come by fighting valiantly and meeting hardships bravely. The last few years have proven this and today you have WON the battle. As I remember you I know in my heart you remembered me and I want to say Thank You. Next to my own Father, you had the most impact and were the most important man in my life. You were always there for me and today ìBossî Iím here for you.

How do you thank someone who has taken you from crayons to perfume? It isn’t easy, but Iíll try. If you wanted the sky I would write across the sky in letters that would soar a thousand feet high – To Sir With Love

And as I leave I know that I am leaving my best friend. A friend who taught me right from wrong & weak from strong – That’s a lot to learn, what can I give you in return? My heart. To Sir With Love.

Itís been an honor and privilege to have served with you, been one of your ìDollsî and included in the McClane family.

We’ll follow the old man wherever he wants to go

As long as he wants to go right against the foe

We’ll stay with the old man wherever he wants to stay

As long he stays in the thick of the battle’s fray

Because we love him, we love him especially when he keeps us on the ball.

And weíll tell the kiddies we answer duties call with the grandest son of a

SAILOR of them all. ìMy Captain McClaneî

TO SIR WITH LOVEÖVal
