"Happiest of Birthdays to you, Dad!"
"I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas. The Christmas' spent without you are piling up...but I'm sure the Birthday party you celebrate in heaven on Christmas is spectacular!
Please know you are never forgotten and thought of often; especially at holidays. I love and miss you so much. I'm doing my best to take care Mom for you."
"I miss you as much today, as I did the day I lost you.There is not a day that I do not think of you and how much I love you!"
"I am potting some flowers today.I do so remember how much we loved doing this together.I know you are happy with my choice of the Cardinals theme.I love and miss you and that will never change. <3"
"Here we are...another year without you. There's so much to say and yet I feel you already know. I love and miss you everyday. I'm trying my best to make you proud in every way. May God Bless you and keep you close. ❤️"
"Another of your birthdays without you here.I just don't think I will ever get use to your not being with me.I am doing the best I can but you are soo missed by soo many! Love and miss you everyday!"
"Hey Grandpa.. Tomorrow I graduate and I just wanted to let you know that there is no one that I am going to miss more. I know you will be there with me, but I wish I could see you again. I can just picture seeing that smile and giving you a hug one more time. I love you grandpa and miss you so much."
"I know you are happy our Cards will be playing ball again next week.If you were here we would be planning our snacks for opening day.I will enjoy them but not as much as when you were here.Love you!!"
"Just thinking of you...today is the first day of Spring. Love and miss you..."
"Hi, Dad, It's been 2 years without you. Without you here to share your smile, or wisdom. So many things have happened that I would have asked you about. I mean, I am asking you, but its different.
Mom's doing alright. Of course, she misses you like crazy, but she's living. She has things that she looks forward to, and she smiles. I wasn't sure she ever would. I thank you for that. The true love that you shared helps her to go on. She knows, we all know, we'll be together one day.
I hope all of heaven celebrated with you today. You are so very deserving. Happy Birthday, I love you! :-)"
"HAPPY 82nd BIRTHDAY! For now, I can only imagine how amazing celebrating a birthday in heaven is. I'm not worried at all that you're being treated well. Just know we're thinking of you here, too! I love and miss you, Happy Birthday! ❤️"
"Well tomorrow will be my 2nd anniversary without you.I will celebrate by going to Jour De Fete just the way we use to.I know you will be with me in spirit.I will always celebrate the day we married and nothing will ever change that.I miss you so much but look forward to the time we will be together again.I love you sweetie and will always <3"
"It's a Sunday afternoon, and if you were here, we'd come out to visit like we did so many times. Mom would make a big lunch or dinner and we'd hang out for hours doing nothing. It was one of my families' favorite things to do. We all miss you so very much. As you know, another Father's Day came and went. Although it was hard, I know one day we will celebrate together again. I love you!"
"I was so happy you visited me in a dream yesterday.I needed that.It had been several months since you came to me in a dream,and I loved it and it is what seems to get me through.I am going to go see The Lone Ranger in a couple weeks.I wish you were going with me because it was you who use to say"Why don't they make a movie about The Lone Ranger" So smile babe,I am going for you <3"
"I just spotted our 1st hummingbird of this year.I got excited for both of us :) I miss you everyday but it's days like this when I miss you most.Miss Fluff misses you too babe.I do the best I can to comfort her.Love you and am comforted knowing one day we will be together again!"
"I am missing you as much as ever.Today I was grocery shopping and there were so many things I almost picked up,and then I thought...No thats not something I like,that was Gene's favorite.I suppose I will always do that.On my way home I drove through the cemetery just to spend some time a little closer with you.I am so proud to have been your wife!"
"Thinking of you with a very heavy heart today. This last year has gone so incredibly fast. Although I am still incredibly sad, and miss you terribly, I have so many wonderful memories and thoughts of you. You took me in and loved me when you didn't have to. I will forever be grateful. You are a very special man. Heaven is an even better place because of your presence. Love and Miss You..."
"I hope you know how much it meant to all of us to celebrate your birthday yesterday.I love you and always will <3"
"Wishing you a Very Happy and Blessed Birthday in Heaven today! We have plans for you this afternoon. I hope you're watching. :) I love and miss you terribly, but I do know you're in the best possible place to be. Love & Hugs to you! ~ Me :)"
"Some of my favorite memories were follwing dad around when I was younger and he was working on a project. I loved to hand him tools and he always explained and taught me. His hands were so big for such a small stature man. I loved them, there was such strength in them. I was never scared of anything when I was with him, he always made me feel so safe, I always knew he would protect me."
"I want to say "Thank You" to all of you for the nice comments about my sweet hubby and your dad and grandpa! I We all loved him so much.I just think this is a nice way to get to share memories with each other.I am only doing the free part right now because I don't really understand how this all works.It says if I pay $79.00 I can do more,but I want to get advice first! Love you all<3"
"Grandma you did a great job on this grandpa is so proud! I know it is very difficult for you everyday but just remember he is with you every step of the way :) Grandpa was awesome with many talents he is missed by many loved ones but no one forget one day we will all be with him again and you will be greeted by that unforgetable smile. Go Cardinals :D"
"I am so happy to have this sight. You did a wonderful job. I love my Daddy so much and miss him so. I will post more later."
"Grandpa was definitely the most talented man i have ever met. He could literally do everything under the sun. I loved listening to him play music with the huge smile on his face:) Anytime i came over, he brightened my day and he could always make me smile! I love him so much and i know everyday he is watching over me.. He is my hero now and always will be. Love you Grandpa<3"
"Thank you, Mom, for making this. It's a wonderful idea. I know your heart is breaking. I wish there was something I could do for you. Dad was such a Huge Blessing in our lives! Christmas is going to be hard; very hard. But knowing he's going to be with us in spirit is going to help. :) I love and miss him so very much!"
"Gene was my true soul mate,he was funny,smart and had the sweetest nature! He loved his family and relished time spent with his friends.He was very talented,he could sing and play many instruments.I miss him terribly!When Christmas comes it will be the worst time for me.He loved it soo much.He would decorate the outside till it was just right!He was just like a child over it! Love him<3"
