    My father, my hero - Phil Hoffman. My father was the most amazing dad around. He never had a bad word to say about anyone, served God with pure devotion, had a strong faith, and was the best provider for his family. He added so much joy, acceptance, and love during his time on earth. I know that God put him in our lives for a reason to inspire hope, faith, and love. He will be missed but I know that God needed another hero in heaven to welcome home. I could hear the cheers here on earth as they welcomed him and congratulated him for a job well done.

    We'll miss you, Father but I know that you're in good hands.

    Love your daughter, Chris
