"It's been two years since you went home to family and friends.  I do not doubt they were as excited to see you as we were sad to see you go.  Nevertheless, I look forward to the day sometime in the future when we will be together again."

"My beloved Father,

I can't believe it's been two years today since you left me and your sons. I will never forget your loving ways, your contagious smile and your great sense of humor. You are so missed that words can not express the emptiness that my heart and mind feels. I do have your pictures and the many wonderful memories of our lives together. Thanks for being a great father, teacher and mentor to not only me but to your sons and everyone you came into contact with through your journey in life. I love you very much Dad and look forward to seeing you and Mom in my next life.

Forever your loving daughter,

Debra"

"Dad, I'm thinking of you on this special day.  I hope you are enjoying it with family and friends... telling stories and having a good time.  

For some reason, I remember #39.  Uncle Earl, Aunt Betty, Jaimee, Vicky,  and Scott came over.  Jaimee made a chocolate cake with coffee flavored icing.

It is interesting the things we remember..."

"Happy 89th Birthday Dad!!!! Gosh I can't believe it's been a year and a half since you left us to join Our Father in Heaven. A day does not go by that I don't say good morning to you and mom. I miss you both terribly. Our family has dwindled down to just a few and such few times do we gather together. I know I am a day early but I can't stop thinking of you and Mom. I will be visiting you both tomorrow to put fresh flowers in front of your marker. I love you with all my heart Dad! Happy Birthday"

"Happy Veterans Day Dad. I never told you how much I appreciated you going to war in Korea. Thank you so much for your service. I love you more than I could possibly express through words or tears.  I miss you so very much. I never realized how deeply I appreciated you until  you became sick. If I could just give you one more kiss......................."

"It's difficult to believe a year has gone by since your passing.  I think of you often.  I remember many good times we had together.  I'm sure those there with you are happy to have you with them again.  I know I will see you again someday in the future but until then memories will have to suffice.  I love you forever..."

it seems just like it was just yesterday
I'll be visiting you and Mom

Always on my mind and in my heart

"I sure miss dad.His kind and gental way's and the smell of coffee coming from the kitchen,I'd do anything just to say I love you one more time."

"Time speeds on,a year has passed
Since death its gloom, its shadow, cast
Within our home, where all seemed bright,
And took from us a shining light,
We miss that light, and ever will,
His vacant place there is none to fill.
Down here we mourn, but not in vain,
For up in heaven we will meet again."
