"Daddy, how I miss you.  I will always call you Daddy because you always liked it when I called you that (except for the time we were in Kentucky and I slammed the car door on your finger).  Anyway, how much we miss you to this day.  The birthday parties, Christmas gatherings and trips to Michigan.  We know you are happy in Heaven, but we so miss you and remember you today. You were truly a gift from God to all of us.  Mom misses you too. Behave yourself up there."

"I do miss Dad.  It was good to have him as a Dad, since my Dad had passed away in 1969.  He was always cheerful, kidding around, and especially always working hard at something, whether it was 2 or 3 jobs at a time, or later, after retirement, working in his workshop, and helping the elderly people in the trailer park.  He was a good Dad and Grandpa!"

"To my dear father,

I miss him so much, he was a wonderful father, a friend, compassionate, witty, and always sneaking out with me (telling Mom) we are going to k-mart, and making a trip to Dunkin Donut! Mom misses you also, and we love you and will see you again someday, until then Dad, I tell all the children, grandchildren, go to Dunkin Donuts, have a cup of coffee and a donut in remembrance of you. It has been 11 years already but seems like yesterday your daughter,
Jan Nelson Vinke"
