|Since you'll never be forgotten we pledge to you today a hallowed place within our hearts Is where you'll always stay|
After 3 years I think this is something that will help us all cope with the loss of the heart and soul of our family and share stories and memories of him from the past years.
"Dad, I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame, your memory is a keepsake which I'll never part. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart! Happy Birthday Dad! I love you and miss you always! RandomT's quotes"
"thinking of you a lot lately. while everythings changing its hard to not stop and think about how things used to be. i still wake up every morning and feel like a piece of me is missing, and there is. I hope heaven is as good as people think because im looking forward to seeing you again up there and having one of our famous heart to heart talks about life. Miss and Love you bunches Papa."
"Thinking of you Dad. Missing our talks a lot today! There are so many things I would love to share with you. Still feels like yesterday you were here and then taken away from us. Days like this I'm so glad I have so many pictures to look at. I know why now it was so important that I take so many. Because I didn't want to forget anything about you dad. Miss & Love You Always & Forever"
"Miss you today Dad! Was over at the house last night and sat in your chair and closed my eyes and wished I could feel your arms around me. It just is not right that you are gone. I miss you every single day! Your loving daughter... Until we meet again!"
"Sam was a great cousin. We spent many a night doing things we should not have done. From getting stuck on the roof until our grand father found us to borrowing a boat to ride down the river. Great memories, great fun and such a great family to grow up with."
"Papa, The last three years have been a whirlwind, life has sped up, and a lot has changed since that day three years ago. Our family isn't the same anymore, but we try and be the best that we can. All the memories we had seem like such a long time ago, but they're so close. Memories last forever. I miss you everyday, but I know that you'll be with me for the rest of my life- Johnny."
"Everybody is sad today. Sad, because three years ago we lost you. One thing I think you should know, I have always tried my best to think about the better days. Like your birthday, or you and grandma's anniversary.. But never this day because to me, this day is nothing more then a countdown until I see you again. I know you're still here with me. I love you. *Big Hug* -Scoot"
"3 yrs now Papa, i still remember that last day like it was just yesterday. I keep replaying that day over and over in my head and i just feel numb all over. My life has been changed forever and so many things happening that you should be here to see, its just not fair that your not here. todays been rough, this day will always be rough. but memories last a lifetime. love and miss you - Nan"
"Dad, I can't believe it has been 3 years today! This day is always such a blur for me just like 3 years ago. My body feels numb all over. I wish I could here you laugh just one more time. I miss our late night talks and all the great advise you would give. I'm still using the knifes you gave me to cook with. I need to watch the video you and I made about how to sharpen them. Love U!"
"Dad... Words don't even come close to how I feel anymore. Everyone says it gets better but I don't think so. I miss u so much it hurts. I miss your voice, your laugh, our long talks, but most of all your hugs!!! I can't believe it will be 3 years tomorrow!! It feels just like yesterday. Life will never be the same without u. Every thing has changed. Miss you, your broken hearted daughter!"
