"Another birthday gone by....Visited your grave today but I know you are not there...I see you everytime I close my eyes and my heart is filled with so many memories....I love you Dad..."
"Another year has gone by and the pain still exists. I think of you often and see so much of you in the kids. I miss you but I am glad you are free of the pain and will see you again...I walk by Mom's piano and look at all the photos and the memories come flooding back and I am so glad I have all those memories and the kids do as well. It keeps you alive in our hearts."
"Pap..if we could have only had one more chocolate covered doughnut! Hope they have lots of those when we are together again. Although you are gone you will never be forgotten. So many memories wish there could have been so many more. You would be so proud of Adam a.k.a. HENRY! Looking forward to seeing you again someday dad. Love you Tam."
"Three years today but seems like only yesterday.....They say it gets easier but I do not feel that way....the days grow harder and the tears are more present.....
I feel you around me in my times of need and the kids and I share stories to keep your memory alive.....
A simple picture brings back so many memories and I see so much of you in them...."
"God looked around his garden.
And found an empty place.
He then looked down upon the Earth,
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you,
And lifted you to rest.
God's Garden must be beautiful,
He always takes the best.
He knew you were suffering,
He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
get well on Earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough.
And the hills were hard t"
"10-14-1937.....happy birthday dad."
"I watched you take your last breath as I held your hand, tears running down my face. I felt a bit of relief knowing you will no longer be in pain, but also realizing I was loosing my best friend. Two years have passed and it seems like yesterday. I see you all around me and in the kids you helped raise. I feel your hand on my shoulder, my angel!"
"We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart."
"Big, strong, dedicated family man-used to scare the hell out of me (I was little). Like my dad-quiet but worth listening to! A bull-headed fighter whose determination conflicted with his love, compassion & kindness! The battle you fought-won by your legacy-a loving family! THANKU"
"You were such a strong example of what a family man truly is. We both drew so much strength from you and will miss you eternally. Justin would have never been the man he is today without you. We love you Pap...Coney Island hot dogs on us next time we see you!!!"
"Every time I close my eyes, I see your face. Words can not express how grateful I am to you for everything you gave me and were always there for me. I could have never asked for a better father. Thank you for a lifetime of memories and can not wait to hug you again. Love Boo."
"you were much more than my father in-law you became my Father,and I your daughter. and that bond can not be broken by death. So till we meet again Dad...Keeps the blinds open so you can see me coming."
