And I can't wait to jump into your arms and hug you so tight!!  The things you taught me carry on in me everyday. They come to me exactly when I need them. (Thank you for that!!). I want to live this life full. Full of life and no regrets. I want to just do what makes me happy, like you taught me to do.

"You are and will always be the love of my life. What more can I say than  that? At first just going on was hard, but we hv three beautiful children so I had no choice. Then the grief engulfs you to the point you dnt think you can breathe. But then God gives you the strength to know that one day I will see you, hug you, & best of all love you all over again! I love you my Husband and I cannot wait to see u again! "Your Tamara""

"I'll never forget this day as long as I live. This day 3 years ago, you went to heaven and my heart broke into a million pieces. My world crumbled because you were gone. I never thought it would happen. You were always invincible to me. The one I knew I could always go to. Now I go to you in pray, but I wish I could have a big ole daddy hug right now!!! (Maybe you can visit in my dreams?)  "I miss you" aren't enough words to explain the missing part inside my heart. It aches to hug you and to hear your voice telling me it's all gonna be ok. I love you sooooooooo much daddy and I can't wait to see you again one day!!  You were an amazing Daddy!! You raised some amazing and loving children! You live on in each of us! I see a lot of you in Carter also! And it makes me so happy!!! He misses his Grandpa Ted too !!! I love you and miss you dearly, love your oldest ❤️RaChelle"
