Dear Dad,

Wanted to wish you a Happy Valentines Day. We know you are and never were into all the gushy stuff with what comes around this time of year, but we want to let you know even though you already know this, but we love you so very much, we never knew how hard it was going to be after we lost you, the same goes for Mom also. No one ever realizes how much they will miss someone until

Merry Christmas in Heaven

Dear Dad,
We are thinking about you this Christmas day but you are always on our minds everyday. This Christmas has already been 2 years since you passed. The 16th of this month was the day you died and it was just 9 days before we had plans to be together, you were so looking forward to being with your daughters but it wasn't meant to be. We know your up in Heaven with Mom now and

Dear Dad, thinking about you today but I do it everyday since you died. Can't believe that you have been gone for 2 years already, the time has passed by but you have never been forgotten, you are still with us in spirit and will always be close in our hearts forever. So much has happened since that day you went to Heaven, you have another new Great Grandchild, her name is Lily Estelle, she just turned 1 yrs old

Happy Father's day Dad!

It's been a rough week for me as knowing this day would come, holidays and special days like today is always emotional and difficult. My heart is empty and not a day goes by I don't have you on my mind. As most would say the longer time passes by the easier it gets, but that's not true, I somehow get by each day but the grief is still there and always will be until I am

HAPPY 86th BIRTHDAY DADDY!!

Dad, if you would still be with us today we would be celebrating your special day with you. It's still hard to imagine your gone along with Mom also. Losing both of you so close together has been the most difficult ordeal for me, but somehow I manage to get by day to day without you two. All the love and wonderful memories will be forever etched in our hearts always. The legacy you both left

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
