"I love you dad"

This tribute was added by Lori Geiger Ormsby on 24th March 2016

"Hi Dad, today is your birthday,  and I really wanted to light it all up. So I hope that candles will do the trick since they don't have much to choose from on this site. I have sent them e-mails asking for them to add more graphics to choose from. This last time I asked,  I actually got a reply for the first time, and they say they are in the process of doing that. I hope so. Because we need to be able to decorate the sites of our loved ones. I am having a great day but missing you beyond belief. It's been 5 years now. But then you know that more than anybody. This is just a quick note since I am going to get on later tonight. I love and miss you dad, nothing will ever change that. Not time nor distance Sis"

"Dear Dad, I know it's been a super long time. I know now I can let go of the pain of losing you because letting go doesn't mean I have forgotten you,  it just means I've learned a way to go on in life without the hurt of you no longer being with us down here. I carry you in my heart each day. I remember you in the little things that I see from time to time. Anyway dad I think I will call this to an end right now and do some changes on your pages just to freshen it up for you. :-) Love Always, Sis"

"Hi Dad, here we are again, I am at mom's house. I had put the flag up on your page for Memorial Day weekend for you in your honor. You would be proud of mom and I today. We pulled a lot of weeds and had a ton of fun doing it. And Tom stopped out while he was in the area he was working in the area and was in a tractor. He came walking up and surprised both mom and I. Anyway we love you. I also went into your shop to get some yard work tools and noticed Bill has left it the way you had it. Did my heart good to see your ashtray with all the butts still in there. I know you know what I mean. Anyway as I said we still love you and will never forget you. :-)"

I never knew it was this painful to lose a parent. I've been staying very busy with the Rebekahs, they have been so good for me. They have taught me so much about how to deal with people in general. And how to stand up for myself. Luv you"

Missing you is suppose to get easier, but that really isn't the case. Tonight I am remebering how you tried to always teach us the meanings of words.
