"Hi Daddy!!
Bo and Bobby won the New England Championship for football!! Not having you with me was very hard... but I know you were watching over Bo. He had 3 touchdowns! The score was 19-6... I know he had you watching over him and enjoying every moment, I just know you would never miss it. I pray you know how much we miss and love you. It wasn't the same not being able to call you or hear you yelling for him and video'ing his game! These are the moments that are hardest...I know I have to be happy for Bo, but I am so sad to not share this with you.  It's been hard trying to learn to balance these feelings. I miss and love you every second of everyday. Love you, Daddy!! xo"

"Hi Daddy... it's me.  Wanted to let you know that Bo wears purple socks to every football game. While most wear pink for breast cancer awareness... your BoBo wears purple.  He told me he wears Purple for Poppy. He loves you and misses you so much, I'm so thankful he remembers you vividly. I pray he always does. He is a piece of you, Daddy. I wish so badly you could be with me this Friday to watch him in the New England Championship game. It breaks my heart to not have you with me and to share in this with him. You would be his biggest fan. You are two peas in a pod. I can just imagine the joy you'd have laying on the couch with Bo watching sports. You'd be in your glory. I love and miss you so very much, Daddy... xo"

"Daddy!!! DADDY!!!!  Oh my gosh!! Votes in heaven counted last night. I will believe that for the rest of my life... I know you were with me, I felt it. It's been a very very long time since I've felt happiness. This election outcome brought me such happiness. Our votes counted today, Daddy.  You'd be so proud to be an American today. I know it. It made up for 4 years ago and the Romney devastation.  I miss you so much! I wanted to call you last night or morning at 2:40. I wanted to so badly. I miss you and my heart aches. I'm thankful I feel that you are beside me every moment I need you. I love you so much, Daddy!! Love you forever, every second of everyday - I miss you and Love you!!! xo"

"Daddy.... I'm thinking of you and my stomach is in knots over the election tonight!!! I know in my heart you are with me tonight. 4 years ago we were devasted beyond... I am praying tonight the same is not in store.  Praying that votes from Heaven count tonight... I love you, Daddy. Mommy is so alone through this without you. I hope she can feel your arms around her... I love you, Daddy!!! SOOOO MUCH!! Xo"

"Daddy...what a hard day Halloween was. I was sad all day thinking of the kids being little and how much I love Halloween... and how much I would give to have it be 5 years ago so the kids would be little and you would be at our house showing up in your "Scream" costume to scare the kids and have fun with us. I can not begin to tell you how much I miss you... it's beyond anything I could ever imagine. I love Halloween so much and I love and appreciate how you would dress up for the kids on Halloween. I love and miss you forever and always Daddy xo"

"Hi Daddy-
Bo had a great game yesterday. Scored a couple of touchdowns, feel like they were for you. It's so hard to not have you there to see him you would go out of your mind, you'd be so proud.  Aliviah has her first field hockey game today... I'm sad I won't be able to report back to you. I know in my heart you will be watching over her. I miss you beyond words, Daddy. Wish I could call you right now... I love you, Daddy. xo"

"Hi Daddy...
We went to Canobie Friday, just me and the kids. We had so much fun... I just wish when we went back to your house after, you were there. Nothing is the same without you. I had a very hard time watching Bo sit just where you would and watch sports. I would have given anything in that moment to have you sitting with him watching college football. You and Bo would be so close... you are so alike and I'm so grateful. Watching him sitting there alone watching football, I felt so robbed - that you are not with him enjoying it. It's what you would have dreamed of...watching sports with a grandson that is as much into it as you are. But instead of feeling robbed, I promised myself I will focus on how grateful I am that Bo is so much like you. I am so lucky that Bo has so many of your beautiful qualities. I miss you everyday, Daddy. Love you so very much... xo *hugs to heaven*"

"Daddy,
Such an emotional couple of days without you... Bo started 5th grade yesterday and Aliviah started 7th. I'm thinking of you non-stop because you appreciated every second watching these babies grow. It's devastating not having you to send these first day of school pics to. You'd be the first one to call and let me know how pretty Aliviah is and how cool Bo looks. I miss you every second of every day. I pray the kids remember how much you love and adore them and just how much you appreciated every second you had with them... I'd give the world to have you back. I love you, Daddy.  xo"

"Thinking of you, Daddy... Just wanted to say Hi. Wanted to let you know that I see you in Bobo more and more every day. He has your dance moves (lucky) and your baseball moves and speed.  I feel so lucky to have a piece of you to look to with Bobo. Oh and that "surprise drink" that turned out Cherry coke... Bo and I know it was you. I love that he knows that...You are deep within my heart and will be forever... I miss you beyond words, Daddy. I love you...xo"

"Just wanted to say Hi and I love you... thinking of you... there was a worker at the house that saw your picture on the wall. The one of you playing the drums at the fundraiser years ago... He was so fascinated by it and wanted to know everything about you and how old you are. I had to clear the lump in my throat to answer him. I will never ever be able to speak of you in the past tense, Daddy.  Because you live in my heart and my soul all day everyday for the rest of my life. I love you!! xo I love my Dad the Drummer!! xo"

"Happy Birthday Daddy... I love you so much. I wish we could celebrate with an ice cream cake... I love you and miss you beyond words. Days like today are tougher than all the others, but everyday is so hard without you.  Love you forever... Happy Birthday in Heaven to my Hero, My Daddy ... xo"

"Happy Father's Day to my Hero!!  I love you so so much, Daddy! The void is so hard today... people say it gets easier, but really it doesn't. It just becomes part of the torture that you learn to live and deal with and over time becomes how you are forced to live.  I promise to try to live everyday being a great Mom and making you proud. I'm hoping today, you were with me and so proud watching your grandson pitch in his game...baseball is you. You were in my mind the whole game. I would give the world to be able to sit with you and watch Bo play baseball!! You would be in your glory.  I feel so robbed of not being able to share this with you.  But... I believed you were watching Bo and right there with him.  Thinking that way is what saves me.  I love you so much, Daddy. I miss you beyond words... Love you forever!! Happy Father's Day!! xo"

"The thought of Father's Day Sunday... makes me very sad. But I'm forcing myself to celebrate you and be thankful for all that you've given me. My positivity, my strength, my humor... all things I've needed to get through life now without you. Harder than I could ever imagine. But I think you are the most amazing Daddy a girl could ever wish or dream for. My wishes and dreams all came true because you are my Daddy...forever and always. I love you Daddy!! xo"

"Thinking of you, Daddy...  Today is my 15th Wedding Anniversary.
On this very day 15 years ago was our Father/Daughter dance.  
I had dreamed of that moment my whole life since you are the most amazing dancer... You fulfilled my dreams with that dance, it was the most precious dance of my life.
A memory that lives in my heart and one of the best moments of my entire life. I am so grateful to look back on that with such happiness. I remember loving that you were happy with my song choice.  I didn't want the traditional "daddy's girl" because that wasn't my style, that wasn't "us".  So when I found Peter Cetera's Daddy's Girl - I just knew it was meant for us.  I knew the parts that were fast would showcase your moves! haha :)  I'm sure no one knew it, but you had only heard the song when I chose it and played it that 1 time... and you grabbed me and we danced...so unplanned. And we didn't do it again until my wedding day.  You led me like a pro and I know everyone thought we choreographed and practiced. We were so in the moment on that day, it was perfect... Just like I always imagined when I was a little girl.  
Like so many other gifts you have given me in life - this one is at the top of the list.  I'll always be "Daddy's Girl"...  love you, Daddy. xo"

"Daddy...This day 3 years ago was the absolute worst day of my life. I lost the most precious man in my life. The pain was unbearable! And now on this very day that we lost you, my heart aches so much...what I would give to have you back. I want you to know that I get comfort knowing your with me, and are watching us, and our kids grow, and that we will all be together again.

I love you so much Daddy! xo
Love,
Tracey"

"Daddy... I can't begin to describe how painful this day is. It took me 3 years to be able to create this site... I needed a place to visit you. Life doesn't feel real without you...nothing seems to matter without you here. I love you so much and live my life trying to make you proud every single day... I'm dedicated to celebrating your life and legacy and honoring the simply perfect man you are.  My Hero, My Daddy... I love you forever!
