Skyler McLain says:

I don’t think there is ever a time when a child is ready to lose their father. While we were all aware of the inevitable, it still feels unreal that he is gone. I thank God for allowing the time I had with him on this earth. He taught me priceless wisdom, courage, and how to change my own oil. I gained my love of history, action movies, and classic rock and roll from him. I see his face each time I look in the mirror.
Thank you for everything you gave and taught, dad. Thank you for loving Chloe. I love you with all of my heart. Words really can’t describe how much you are already missed. Until we meet again.
