|Let the memory of Edward be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Edward Knutson, 83, born on November 27, 1928 and passed away on February 10, 2012. We will remember him forever.
Today, Nov 27th, 2014, my Dad is celebrating his 86th birthday, the second in Heaven. I know he's having the best time, and I hope the reading today helped make it a little better. I Love you, Dad, Happy Birthday & Happy Thanksgiving.
Time has passed, yet we never forget who you are..and yes, I say "are" because I truly believe you remain with us. We still love you, Dad, and it's been 5 years since you passed. You're in my heart, my soul, and in me...and that love will never die.
"It's two days passed the date you left us; 2/10/12, I'll never forget that day. I know you're aware that you now have another great Granddaughter, Kaleigh Marie..yep, Brande and Dan's baby and she's just beautiful. She was born 1/10/17, and had her one month birthday on the day you passed. We know you know her, why? Brande and Dan were over visiting Mom right after Kaleigh was born, this was in January, and they saw at least 4 bluebirds in the front yard..IN WISCONSIN IN MID WINTER!!
That's proof enough to know you have seen your brand new Great Granddaughter and are watching over her. Thank you, Dad, we love you so much, and I can't wait to see you again someday. It's hard to believe it's been 5 years, but as everyone says, it never gets easier to miss the ones we love...but when I know you're in such a better place...that makes me smile.
You're still here, I know it, and you always will be...oh, and congratulations on your new Great-Grandchild...and our first Grandchild. :)"
"I cannot believe it's been 4 years since you've passed and another birthday has gone by. I miss your joking around, your laughter, the beautiful laugh and blue eyes you had. I miss everything about you, and I am trying so very, very hard to stay strong, but sometimes it's so hard. I feel like it's me against Mom, Sara, and Alan, because I don't have you there to back me up anymore. Mom always has favored Sara and Alan, and we used to be so close, until Sara talked her into not going on our shopping trips together, because, I was told by Mom, "Alan's been divorced and Sara has a special needs son". Really? Does that mean I have to have either one of those in order to have you stand up for me? Sorry, I won't sacrifice anything for that. It just makes me cry sometimes, because I miss how close Mom and I were..now..it seems, everything is Sara this, or Alan that, or their kids. I have the greatest kids in the world, never been in trouble, respectful..and my husband is amazing. I miss you so much....but I know you're happier because now you can laugh, talk, joke, and you have lots of family around you. I'll see you one day, but until then..I'll be strong.
I'll bet you're around watching over Brande and her Baby, making sure they're safe. I love you, Dad, and soon you'll have another Great-Grandchild."
"I know it's the day after, but I was so busy...but you also know I wasn't too busy to stop and read to you. The sun was out, it was a beautiful day, thank you, and thanks to God for that.
I was reading the book and I don't remember why right now, but something in what I was reading just made me start crying. I think it was something that I knew you'd have enjoyed a lot. I couldn't start the next chapter like I wanted because while skipping to see how long it was, I saw that one of the characters dies...and I just couldn't handle that.
I love you, Dad, and I miss you so much, sometimes more than others, but I know you're always with me. I wish I could learn to love Valentine's Day again, but I can't. It only reminds me of the day you were laid to rest, and that's very hard.
Just know, that in my heart, you are always my Valentine, and I will never forget you."
"Happy Birthday, Dad, I hope you have the most incredible celebration in heaven with all your family up there. I love you and miss you, but know we'll all be together again some day.
HAPPY 86TH BIRTHDAY."
"hi, Dad...I wanted to stop by and leave a little something..I know today is one to celebrate, in a way, because it's the day you went to live with God and were able to talk and laugh once more. I'm so happy for you, and I love you so much. I know that one day we'll be together again, and I will never stop thinking about you.
Until we meet again, know my heart is with you every day."
"Happy Birthday, Dad, I miss you so much, and love you...but I know you're there watching over us. Some day we'll be together again...You'd be so happy to know that today Brande wanted to go and learn how to make Lefse, and asked me to go along, so we went and Kathy and Mom showed us how to do it, and actually let us do it. Tomorrow we roll it out. I hope you liked your birthday present...I'm sure you were laughing over the "surprise" when I jumped out from behind the mausoleum...I could just hear you.
And then when I got there, the sun wasn't even shining where we were at, but as soon as I sang Happy Birthday to you and put the wreath with the birthday cake there, then began reading your book to you, the sun came out full and warmed me up. I love those kind of hugs from you.
I love you so much, and miss your laughter...the joking around..everything. I wish so much I could have just heard one more story from you, one more joke.....but that was taken from us. I just have to keep the memories close and know that one day we will hear them again...I can't wait.
I love you, Happy Birthday (yesterday) and Happy Thanksgiving, today."
"may God be with you at this time"
"This is for my Dad, Edward Knutson, a man who loved life, loved his wife and family, and would be there for anyone when they needed him. He will forever be missed, taken from us by 2 rare diseases and a brain tumor, we still thank God he didn't suffer at the end, but went through that "door" peacefully and into the arms of God. Dad, we love you, and miss, more than you'll ever know."
Have a suggestion for us?
