"Dear Daddy, we love you and miss you. You are forever with us."
"Vaniece and Family, Thinking of you today and keeping you in our prayers. I love and miss you my dear friend. Take care. Gwendolyn and your goddaughter Price. ❤️"
"Hi Daddy, it's been a year and I have missed you. Yesterday I mentioned to Mecca that today is the the first anniversary of your death. Mecca asked if I would be sad all day. This is my response.
I chose to hold dear the fond and loving memories that we created together. I chose to embrace the appreciation of music, your witty sayings, your mastery of vocabulary, poetic readings, and your decision to nuture positivity. I love you; I miss you; I thank you for all the parts of you that you shared with me. Today I chose to reflect on the experiences that wouldn't have been without you. When I reflect in that manner my appreciation of the memories overwhelms the sadness that you are no longer here. You have done your part. It is up to me to keep you alive."
"Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas Bob!
“Dear God, we are here to express our gratitude for all your blessings. You have given us so much, not only providing what we need to live, but in giving us yourself. We are richly blessed, and it is right to acknowledge that you are the source of all good things. Yet this day also brings a mix of emotions to us. We confess our thanks, but also our sadness because of the empty place at our table. We know that death and sorrow were not your original plan, but we also know that you use difficulties to draw us closer to you and to each another. Here and now fill the empty places in our hearts and this empty place at our table. Teach us to savor the moments we have with one another, to rightly remember what we have lost, but also to look forward in hope to what we have promised in the future. We say again, ‘Your love is better than life.’ Thank you for all your blessings, for even through trials and loss you always, somehow reveal your goodness. In Jesus we pray.”
So many good memories to look back on during this season! We thank you and I pray we all continue to make new memories you would be proud of.....Be Blessed!!!"
"Vaniece and family,
You have my heartfelt sympathy. I know the pain of losing a father. Know that his memory lives on in all of you."
"My goodbye to you is not forever and not the end it just means ill miss you until we meet again. Your endless sayings, and wonderful stories are with me forever! Thank you for the memories, and the life lessons! But, most importantly thank you for being the best great grandad ever, I couldn't have asked for any other. Peace out deezy, mom loves you forever and always ❤️"
"Bob – A friend, a grandfather, and a great-grandfather and so much more. When I look back over the years I can say I was truly blessed to have you in my life. So many memories and stories that you have left us to share. Your great-grandchildren sit around trying to imitate your gestures, your walk, your swag, and those catchy phrases that only you can do. I don’t have to say goodbye because I can see the seeds you have planted and the fruit it is producing daily in this family.
I thank you for your life and countless sacrifice. Although we may be sorrowful, I can say with certainty that this is only a temporary absence, because I believe God received you with open arms as your soul heard those words you so patiently waited to hear, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”
“Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace at the end of the day.
If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much, Good friends, good times, a loved one' touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.”"
"Laura and family, We extend to you our love and support as your family deals with the loss of your father. May your faith, inner strength and the power of God's love carry you through. Our prayers are with you. Love, The McCall Family (Rick, Tonya and Family)"
"The death of a person is not the time to weep, it is a time of rejoicing, for the Lord our God, has brought His child to sit by Him forever. This is a time for all to remember the pleasant times. Do not be selfish and wish them back, for they have gained what every human desires, Eternal Peace. My love to you all!"
"Vaniece, Renee, Laura and family; I am grateful to have had the pleasure of meeting your dad back in the early 1990's on one of his visits to Seattle and each visit that I was able to see him was always a delight. Please know that my daughter Price and I are keeping you all in our prayers as you go on this journey that none of us want to travel but know that we must. I traveled this journey 5 years ago and can only imagine what you all are going through. Vaniece, your extended family here in Seattle love's you and we want you to know that we are here for you if you should need us. Also your goddaughter wants me to tell you she loves you beyond measure and misses you."
""Laura and family may god wrap his arms around you in this time of need,i pray for the healing that god will help you though your loss.may you be filled with his love and memories forever in your heart.Love You Sis"
"Daddy we love you and value your lessons, profound thoughts and attention to detail. Til next I see you, EASY"
"Robert - To one who bears the sweetest name and adds a luster to the same, who shared our joys, who cheered when sad, the greatest friend we ever had. Long life was his, for there's no other could bear his name, no not another."
