|Let the memory of RAY be with us forever|
"He was always there for me when i wanted to talk to him about something. It's been different without him. I miss the times when he'd take me to the dump to drop off leaves in the fall. I miss the times he'd come with us to the state fair and me, my sister, cousin and him would have a photo taken of all of us. The first year was in 2001, it was just me and him in the photo. We all never missed a year after that. 2011 was our last year that we all got a group photo together at the state fair. After that, we never really had the time, I can't really remember why. That day that my dad brought us to the hospital and my mom told me that he had died earlier in the day, i wanted to burst out in tears but i held it in the best i could while we were there. That night in bed, i cried so hard for so long. I cried myself to sleep for the next couple days. I was able to go on in school without it bothering me. During the funeral I was able to hold it together, until i looked over and saw my mom and sister crying. That's what made me lose it. Every night before I'd go to bed, we would fist bump each other. That was our way of saying good night. That was our little thing that we had. The one thing I have to remember him is the one watch. It was hanging in his truck and it bothered me that it never worked. And i told him that we gotta get it to work again. Log story short, it never got fixed, but thats okay. Because when I see it, it makes me smile and remember him. He would explain to me how football worked because i never really got it and that's how i learned some football concepts. I really miss him and would do anything to bring him back for just one day. I love him so much and will always hold him in a special place in my heart. I wish he could be here so i could tell him that i got a girlfriend. I wish he could be here to meet her. I know that he would really like her. I get my drivers license on Tuesday January 19th. We used to talk about me getting my license and him letting me drive his truck. Now i want to do that when i get my license. Even though he won't be there, i still wanna drive it by myself and imagine that he's there sitting right next to me with us talking."
"There is so much to say about the greatest man i ever loved,next would be my Fiancé who passed away recently. Where do i start,well my dad was a wonderful father,parent,friend that anyone could ever have! I loved him so much and with all my heart and soul,i still and will always love him. I miss you dad so much everyday,It's been so unreal still that your gone,but never from my heart. It's never really goodbye, just a "til we see each other again"!"
Have a suggestion for us?
