~I LOVE YOU DADDY~
My daddy JACK D. SALVA passed away April 17th 2008 from a heart attack at a local hospital while being treated for an Abdominal Hemotoma. The night before he died, the doctors said he was doing really good and might get to go home in a few days. I never thought it would be the last time I would see him. My heart broke in half the day he died. I miss my dad more & more every day that goes by. He was a wonderful man with a heart of gold. He never had a bad word to say about anyone ever. Everyone loved him. I am so glad that HE was my DaD.
