  • Dad,
    You were the rock to my universe and I have a lifetime of memories that I will cherish till my time comes to be back with ya. I will never forget the time when we stripped down that old ford truck and you went through that ol’ 302 making sure it was at it’s best taking it to the Hartford Fair. That truck and motor hummed the whole time…made it all the way to finish and it actually hit so hard it broke the frame in half…lol there is so many more memories that I would have to write a book on.With that said Edward Allen Axline (Dad) I will do my best to carry on the Axline tradition and make sure that family is always number one!

    Love Dallas
