Photos: Gospel singer, Kirk Franklin pens emotional letter to his adopted daughter on her wedding day

Award winning American gospel singer Kirk Franklin's eldest daughter Carrington tied the knot with her college sweetheart, Max on Saturday, October 1, in Dallas Texas.
Kirk not only walked Carrington (his wife Tammy's child from a previous relationship whom he legally adopted) down the aisle, shared a special dance with her during the reception, he also officiated the wedding. Minutes before the wedding, the choir director penned an emotional post about letting go of his baby girl. Read after the cut...
"She's getting married today.....and I've spent an hour and a half rewriting this. Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go, ....of my little girl. I will walk her down the isle, then I will officiate the wedding. Why? Because I'm selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I don't make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak. God, it's so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be. I want to go go- kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over again....just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause she's not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one. I'm sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! I'm proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud. He comes first now. I'll have to get use to that, cause I'm selfish, for you. 
Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let go.... I'm going to try really hard,...but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretend....that I'm never letting go. Forever daddy's girl.  
Signed, A girl's daddy

Dear Linda,

I read this good news on Saturday. Today is Tuesday. Now my Dear Daughter, lease kindly read advice from someone old enough to be your Mother.

Linda, please employ people to scout social media for updated news - make a big list of people worldwide e.g. academicians, artists, athletes, celebrities, politicians, leaders, economists, etc. Get your staff to visit their social media platforms on a daily (sometimes twice a day) basis and extract your own brand of news. You will find news that isn't even covered by the newspapers, magazines, blogs & news sites. Trust me, I know what I am saying.

Linda, please get some of your employees to work night hours so that you will have news from across the globe round the clock. Furthermore, please add tabs to your site for ease of navigation. Remember, you are your own brand. God has equipped to do awesomely. You will soar like an eagle!

Wishing You God's Best.
God Bless You and Yours Always.
