HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Dear Dad,

Thinking about you today, but you are always on my mind everyday. The saying goes that you don't realize how much you miss someone until they are gone and this is so true. I miss you so much Dad and will never ever forget you and the night you passed away... I know that you already knew your time was coming to an end, and now looking back I can now see it, remember being with

*******MERRY CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN*******

Dear Dad,

Wishing you a Merry Christmas in Heaven. We all miss you so much, the days and months that go by are not the same without you and Mom here with all of us. Charlie and I went over to his Dad's house last night for Xmas Eve and was very hard for me as we drove down Westshore, I get all worked up the minute we hit Kennedy and get near the house on Bay Court.

Dear Dad,

Today has been 1 year that you have been gone now, its really hard to believe all this time has passed. It seems like just yesterday especially remembering that horrible tragic night when we got the call that you were gone. It breaks my heart and has bothered me ever since that we couldn't get over to the house in time to say out last goodbyes to you, knowing that you were asking for us and we were not

Dear Dad,

Thinking about you and wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving in Heaven. Just finished writing to Mom. All of us miss you so much and love you dearly. Now that you and Mom are gone we realize how important you two were to us. The saying is you don't realize how much you miss someone until their gone from your life. Even so when you and Mom were alive we always would say I love you each and everytime we

Dad,

Wanted to tell you that all of us were thinking about you yesterday. Dan finally got married to his longtime girlfriend Jessy, I know you already saw a picture of her and I think you knew Dan was going to get married, but either way yesterday was his wedding. We just cannot believe its been already 11 months since you passed away, and next month will be a year, its doesn't seem real. So much has happened since you passed

Dear Dad,

All of us wanted to tell you that you are a Great Grandpa again, Michelle delivered a 9lb 8oz baby Girl, her name is Lili Estelle. I wish you had not died when you did, so at least you could have known she was going to have a baby. She announced the news after your passing it was just a month or so shy of your death. I wrote to Mom to tell her the good news of the

Dear Dad,

Even though you are now with Mom and up in Heaven with her, I'm still here and today is a very special day for both of you and for us here. If you were still here it would have been your 65th wedding anniversary, no matter what it still is in my mind. It doesn't matter to us we are celebrating the day you both got married and your life you had together. It was a special one for

Dear Dad,

I meant to write to you yesterday as it's been 10 years already since you passed away but it was really a long day and by the time I realized it was today, oh well 1 day short isn't going to make a difference, but you know how much of a perfectionist I am. I've never stopped loving you or thinking about you. I miss you and Mom so very much. I wish there was a way to turn

Dear Dad,

We all wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday today. If you would have not passed away we would have celebrated together your 85th birthday. We wanted so much for you to have made it to that, but also wished you wouldn't have died. It's been really rough since that day and can't believe its already been almost 6 months that you've been gone. The emptiness inside of us have been hard to deal with especially when both you
