"NEW PICTURE ADDED!!! Oil painting picture now in the slideshow to the right!

Uncle Jeff had a special gift made for Mom in honor of dad. He ordered a painting from a Custom Generational Art Studio that specializes in authentic oil paintings done with creation remains mixed into the paint. This is so unique! The painting can stay in the family and be passed down to each generation as a family heirloom. This was a surprise to Mom!!! It's gorgeous!! We can only imagine the breath-taking beauty where you are in Heaven...it cannot be duplicated. However this painting reminds us of the days you are now enjoying!!

Thank you Jeff for an incredible and very thoughtful gift!! There are no words to share that compare to the feelings in our heart!! God bless you!!!

Hope you like it Dad!!! I love you!!"

"Dad, Christmas is just not the same without you AGAIN! We had dinner at my new house, but the food we made hardly compares to the anticipation we had for yours every year. Well, we finally did it!! We moved into our own house and mom is now living with us. God has blessed us GREATLY!! So throw Jesus a high-five for me!! Make sure you tell Him also, that I'm still jealous you are there before me!!...lol. :) (remember talking about that?) Mom is doing ok. She has cancer, but is receiving Chemo treatments. She is tough! You would be so proud of her. She is walking closely with the Lord now as well...so I know you are happy about that too! Just wanted to say I love you! You are still missed!! ...and ALWAYS will be"

"Well Obama won dad. :(  I'm pretty sure you would have loved the suspense in this unpredictable election.There was a high anticipation on both sides. I took mom to vote this year, but I remember how proud you were when you used to take her. Feels like the pride of "America" is gone. It's just not the same anymore. Wish you were here watching this crazy world with me. I miss you & love you."

"Dad I can't even put in to words how you've influenced my life. And everyone who came to know you. Always so positive. Found humor in everything. Had so much faith, I could only wish I was half the christian you were. There's not enough room on here to say everthing you were or did. I hope your listening cause I talk to you everyday. You will never be forgotten. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!!"

"Dad I miss you so much..i think about you all the time. I know you are in a much better place. No one has ever given me so much and helped everyone out with asking nothing in return. You taught us how a family should be. The most important thing you taught me is how to be a true christian, not to judge others and read us the bible. You live on in me. I love you-your daughter krista"

This tribute was added by Michael Mason on 31st January 2012

"My dad could do it all- cook, fix anything, build anything, give great advice, make you laugh etc.  He was ALWAYS there when any of us needed him. He was more about helping family and family friends then helping himself. Even though he is gone his spirit lives on.  Your only son loves you dad,  rest in peace."

This tribute was added by VICTORIA HANSON on 30th January 2012

"I miss my dad so much. The saying goes, "It'll get better with time"...but whoever said that, didn't know MY dad. Each morning I wake up with a headache and a heartache. As my day goes on with revolving memories, peace replaces the pain...and by night, my heart is full of joy and happiness for him. Only to wake up and do it all over again. ~ Dad you will ALWAYS be with me ~
