Thinking of you today. Judy is with you now and everything is so different. We still miss you, I'm more grateful for the Father you gave us. He is our everything as is Mom. I'm always going to be there for Grandma. I promised and I'd never break it. Everything was better when you and she were with us. Until my day comes, I remain loving and missing you Grandpa.

Over two years since you have gone and I think about you so much. I can hear The Tennessee Waltz and tears roll but they are happy ones now because I know your free and alive in our Savior. I miss you very much. We ALL do. Loving you forever and ever. Amy

Two years have now passed without you by our side. I wish I could say it is easier now, but it isn't. The pain of losing you seems as real as ever. Many things have happened that you have missed - Nicole's wedding - a new great-granddaughter, birthday and other celebaratioons. I wish you could have been there too.
We think of you always and the closeness our family shared - especially at Christmas and the holidays. This year most

Last Saturday, Mom, Judy, Amy, myself, Jake, Joe, Nicole, and Kelley attended the memorial service at White Chapel. It was very hard to sit there without you by our side. But it was also nice to pay respect to you once again, remember all of the good times, and to place the ornaments on the tree.
Christmas won't be the same this year, but you will always be with us, and I know the angels are by your side. You are always loved and missed!

It has been eight months since you were with us. I can't begin to express how much I still miss you. I think about all the times we had together, and how much you meant to me. Knowing you were there to help support me through everything made my life so much easier. You deserved so much more at the end of your life - but I hope you realize how much you were loved and looked after. Mom

I was his 1st grandchild & my sister his third. Our most precious Grandfather was fun, complex, honest & hard working, highly intelligent and lived to provide for his family including his Mother, sisters and later in life his aging Father. He would take us water-sliding, to California & Florida. He rode space mountain with us and laughed the whole time. He was devoted to our most precious Grandmother always reminding us " Now, take care of Your Grandma" and

I always appreciated John's easygoing manner and his ready smile.
When Jim and I sought custody of Jim's son, John, many years ago, it was John who came to the courthouse and gave us his blessing. And, John was especially kind to me who kind of entered this family through the back door by marriage. I will never ever forget his many kindnesses and words of encouragement.
Ida and John had many years together as husband and wife. And, Ida must
