"Hi daddy just stopping by to say happy birthday and that I love and miss you very much....life's been a bit crazy since you moved on, but I have faith that we will see each other again someday and all the craziness will then be lost and forgotten. Wishing you were here, feeling sad:("
"Miss you daddy. Kellans getting big..he looks at your picture all the time & I tell him it's his pop pop. Happy birthday today. I wish you were here to celebrate. Thinking of you always. May the Lord watch over us all til we meet again. I Love you."
"We always keep your spirit alive and are thankful that we were able to have such a wonderful father who touched our lives so much...missing you sooo on this day and everyday...love you daddy;("
"Hi Daddy, well it's been a year and it's still somehow all a fog, I talk of you often, and always have you in my heart...I miss you soo, still hurts my heart everyday not to have you here. Living with Amy now, never saw that coming, but I believe it's a good thing and it happened for a reason...we take care of each other, as you would want us too. We take care of mommy too."
"Hi dad, I can't believe its a year today you've been gone. It still hurts so much. I hope you've been watching over us. Kellan's getting big, he has your eyes.. I tell him all the time how much you would have loved to hold him & teach him. I miss you dad. We r goin to Dennys in your memory today & reminisce about how wonderful you were to all. I love you dad I'm sorry you're not here."
"Are gonna be great parents, just like you and mom were, I know it. Ang is so much like you daddy, I don't even think she realizes it:) but that's a good thing, we need more people like you in the world. She's the glue that hold us together just as you did....I love you daddy, and miss you with all my heart...until we meet again<3"
"You'd be so impressed, Mom has a job...she's making it work, the kids are great, and your boy is becoming a man...Amy finally smartened up and is getting her life back, and Ang, well she's doing great, so excited for the new baby boy, and Donnie's baby girl as well...We will make sure the newbies get to know all about their poppop, as I'm sure you will watch over them as well..Ang and Bri"
"Though, because I'm not able to hug you, or hear your voice...you will be happy to know for the most part things are well, I try to stay passionate with all that I do, and be loving as much as I can...you were so loving, I miss that...daddy you taught me so much, I only hope I am able to instill in my children all the love and compassion you so graciously shared with every life you touched"
"Well Daddy it's been 6months and a day, it still hurts the same without you here, whoever said it gets easier with time was lying. I miss you so much, think of you often, and talk of you as well...so many things I wish to still share and talks I wish to have...in my heart I want to believe you are somewhere out there, watching over all of us, and I hold on to that. My heart still aches"
"We all miss u in our own little ways & you're never far from our minds. I still feel you in my heart every day dad & I love you beyond words.your love fills me up & helps me get thru each day..I hope to be as good a parent to my child as you & mom always were...I will share the love you showed me & my son will know you dad & how much you meant to all of us. I love u. Til we meet again."
"Hey dad...I thought I'd send a message today...been thinking about you a lot and missing you even more...I'm almost 8 months pregnant & the hardest part for me is not being able to show you & talk about all I'm going through. I can smile more when I think of you, but sometimes I still cry cause the emptiness is always there. I know you'd be proud of the family...we're making out ok"
"..flaws and all. I love you Daddy and just wanted to let you know I was thinking of you today as I do everyday. All My Love until we see each other again--Anna"
"need to cry, it's okay to cry." and I do, and it helps to get it out. Kobe and Jase are doing well, which I'm sure you know, as are all of your grandchildren. Ang is getting bigger each time I see her, and can you believe it, another grandson...almost a baseball team:) Kris has been helping Amy on the house, trying to get it done, you'd be so happy with him too...he truly loves our family."
"As do all of your children, and mom too. We just celebrated Donnie's 24th, you'd be so proud of him, I was sad that day thinking of you, wishing you were there. We are planning something fun for mom's 50th too, so she can try to enjoy herself. It won't be the same without you here with us. I don't mean to cry, but sometimes I can't help it, and you always told me..."Honey sometimes you..."
"Daddy today marks four months since you left this earth, It still feels like yesterday in my heart. I think about you often, as do we all, and talk of you often as well. I was just telling Kobe how I miss your hugs. You loved us so much, I miss that love. Sometimes I just close my eyes and picture you hugging me and it is comforting to some degree. I Just miss you so much,"
"Hey dad, Bri & I found out...it's a boy...see you were right :). I miss you...been thinking of you a lot, but trying to stay on all the happy memories & thoughts so I don't cry. Wish you were here to see my belly...you would laugh :). I know you are here in my heart...I love you dad & I still can't believe your gone. Keep watching over me...all of us..we need you & God to get us thru."
"Poppop I'm thinking about you ,and when we lived at the old house,and when we would play tent under the covers together in your room when I was sad"
"We celebrated your birthday yesterday dad..celebrated what a wonderful man you are. Mom ate a steak for you :) lol. She wishes you were here...we all do. I miss you dad & I love you...see you in heaven one glorious day."
"Ask for...I love you and miss you with all my heart daddy, and The Lord continues to guide me through each and every day so that I may see you again. Just know we are all supporting and loving one another just as you showed us to do and I thank you for everything you've taught me and all the love you gave, I only hope I can be as great a parent as you were.<3"
"Hi Daddy...happy birthday, I'm thinking of you with warm thoughts today, but hurting inside cause I can't hug you or hear your voice. Daddy as the days go by I just miss you more, waiting for the day to see those sweet baby blues again...Baby Jase has them too and I'm so glad cause each time I look at him it reminds me of you. Daddy you are and will always be the best daddy a girl could"
"As a girl I dreamt about how u would be a grandpa to my kids & how they would adore you like I always have. It tears my heart to pieces every time I think about how they wont have u. Look out for my lil one & me dad. I need u so much right now..sometimes I just don't know how I'm gonna make it thru one more day. I love u & I'm trying to make u proud, but it's lonely here without you."
"Anna & I must be on the same wavelength...I was up thinking about you a lot yesterday...3 am I got up and sat on the bathroom floor to cry with the door shut so I didn't wake bri up...good thing I don't have work today. Dad I miss u more every day. I wish u were here to get me thru the tough days. Being pregnant just makes it that much more difficult."
"Just want u to know u will never be forgotten, we all miss u so much and talk of u often, Mommy misses you so, but I know she's glad your no longer in pain, and we r taking good care of her as we always will, Donnie too, he's growing up and we will continue to guide him as u would have done, I'm looking out for Amy too, and Ang, well she looks out for all of us just as u did<3"

"I think about Christmas and how different it will be without you here to hug, and my heart hurts and I cry, sometimes I just can't help it and I cry, there is just so much that I think about and remember and I don't know when I will feel better. I lye awake just thinking of you until I can fall asleep and I get up everyday and I think of you, sometimes I can't hold the tears back<3"

I'm heartbroken and I'm not quite sure how to be "normal" again...I suppose it will take lots of time and it will never quite be the same. I love you..you are in my heart forever."
"Miss you Uncle Don.. I've been trying to look into apprenticeship programs to become an electrician just like you and my pops. It's a rough, ugly and nasty world we're living in. Which is why I'm so happy and without an ounce of sadness in me, from your departure. You got promoted to sit with the big man. In paradise. With no more suffering. I love you man, and look over donny. He needs u."

"When i must leave you for a little while please do not cry, but start out bravely with a gallant smile. Live on and do all things the same feed not your loneliness on empty days, but fill each waking hour in useful ways. Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer and in turn will comfort you and hold you near. Love your Sister Lynn"
"Missing you more everyday Daddy...I give thanks for the man you were, and the loving supportive father you have always been.
