Grandpa time isn't healing the wounds that hurt so much without you Dad and Aunt Judy. Your family misses you. Your grandchildren miss you, your daughter in law and sin in law miss you. I know your daughter here on Earth misses you and I'm certain your wife misses you. I envision you with your parents and sisters and two children there with you and the joy you must feel and I look forward to the day we are a

Dear Dad,

Another year...they saw time heals, but I am not sure that's true. It's been 4 years now without you, and it seems like you just left. The sadness and loneliness is still there. Even more so after we lost Judy and Johnny Lee. We are doing okay, and Mom seems like she is holding her own. I know some days she is so lonely - as am I without all of you here.

Your amazing love for our family

Dear Dad,

March 9th - a very special day when a special person was born. Looking back on some pictures the other day and all the many birthday and other celebrations we enjoyed together as a family. How I appreciate everything you did for us, the sacrifices you made, and the love you shared. We love you very much and will always cherish you.

Your daughter, Jan

Yesterday would have been your 94th Birthday. Here on earth that would have been something! But your celebrations are much more joyous where you are. Hug Daddy for me. I miss you both so much. I guess you two can catch up for all the Father and Son time you may have missed out on. That makes me smile and feel content. Not very much makes us smile anymore without you or Dad. Grandma is Okay but I know she's trying to be strong for her family. HAPPY BIRTHDAY John A Ragan. March 9th. WE LOVE YOU Amy & Jennifer

Tomorrow marks three years since you left. THREE years. It's been a very unhappy time. Now Grandpa I've lost Dad. As i wrote you earlier we just lost Judy and now my joy...my Father. Why? All this sorrow. I try to talk to Grandma every day. I'm getting more and more worried about so much going on I can't control it and I don't know how to help and I miss Daddy so much I can't breathe and it's scary

Dear Dad,

Three years(tomorrow) now have gone by without you by my side. How sad I am still today that you left me then, but also so happy that you are with God. A lot of sadness this year in our family. We lost our precious Judy and Johnny Lee, all within a few months of each other. I don't understand why these things happen, but God does, and I know you are all in heaven together, and watching over us.

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. Amy & Jen

Dear 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

Dear Dad,

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
