"Hey Pop, I see that Charles gave you the news about the game. He is right you would have loved it. But you already knew I guess. I sure do love you and miss you. Think about you everyday in one way or another. So many times I think if Pop was here I could ask him how he would do this . I miss you and love you."

"So today is your birthday. Given the fact that we are eternal beings, I guess you will never quit having one. My hope is that we never forget to celebrate it with you. Miss giving you a call  but you are in our thoughts. Oh yea, the Cubs Finally won the World Series and it was Madden who guided them through. I know how you loved baseball."

"Happy Birthday Jake,I was young when you were in Pa with your family but old enough to watch your children some times. Always remember the "watermelon" runs you would make down south an brought many tasty ones here to Pa. You and your family were good neighbors to my mom and dad. RIP may your family see you again when the circle will then be complete."

"So many things about him I see in me. So much of how I learn I got from him. He never ran away from a challenge. And in spite of the tough things in life that he faced,he always seemed to have those less fortunate than him in mind."

"To the man that taught me what life was all about. He had a big heart and the patience of a saint. If you were fortunate enough to know him, you were blessed, as was I to be his daughter."
