"I miss you so much. It's not the same without you here especially when it comes to your Birthday. I know I am selfish and still wish you would have survived Lung Cancer for a Third time. I know you are at peace. Just stay with us."

"It is so hard to believe that you have been with out us now for 3 years was told as time goes by it gets easier. Not always. I miss the relationship that you had with Jason. He will never have a relationship like that again. I do talk to him about you. He listens. You fought so hard to stay here. I didn't want to believe that you were a very sick man. Dr. A said that we gave you 3 more years and you had 3 good years until the last 6 months. I miss seeing your car out in front of my house. Dana and I talk about you all the time. I know you will be there at the wedding that you knew would eventually happen between Dana and Julio. I would have been looking forward to your speech. I know someday I will see you again. Until then please watch out for all of us.
You were great at that. Always in our hearts."

"We think of you everyday especially when we think we hear you walking up the stairs. We listen for you to knock on our door to ask for your cherry coke.  We can't believe that it has been two years since you passed away. Our thoughts go out to your family and wishing them lots of prayers in remembrance of you."

"Dad, I can't believe that you have been gone for 2 years now. I miss you so much. Life without you is very different. I miss our dinners. Us going out and you helping me push Sean in his wheelchair. Margaret has SSDI now. We will find her a place to live. We are going to Disney World with John, Katharin and the kids. I will be thinking about you every step of the way. I know we are flying because that is what you have wanted us to do. We are going to visit Uncle Bob too. I love you very much. I remember blowing you a kiss the night before you passed away and told you that I loved you and you waved good bye and said the same thing. I couldn't hear your voice but I read your lips as you waved good bye to me. I had no idea you would not be here with us the next day. You are in a better place I know that. I am selfish I wish you were still here. Please continue to look down upon us. We are all doing ok. Think about you everyday. I know you and mom have to be together doing that. She told me that she would be. I hope you are proud  of all of us. Thank you for tapping me on the shoulder and telling me that you better not drive to Disney World.
Always in  my heart,

"Being a neighbor for over thirty years have brought us closer to the family. We spent many hours with John especially fixing his computer. My son, chad would always be available to fix his computer. At the end we would always check in on him to see if he needed anything at  the store. His favorite item would be cherry coke . We miss him so much and can't believe it is a year. Our thoughts go out to your whole family to send a prayer for you."

"I know how much you must miss him Sue.  He will always be in your heart.  Chris has his picture of your Dad on her shelf with the grandchildren.  She misses him also.  They were always on each others "shit list" which gave us many laughs and memories.  Rest in peace John - we miss you.   Especially by Rick and Mary Ann's at Christmas - he always would come over for "a few" cocktails before coming by your house.  Take Care - will be thinking of you tomorrow!"
