Happy Thanksgiving Daddy. I wish you were here to fight over the dressing with, and to see you drool over the deviled eggs lol. This was the last time I ever got a hug from you, and to see you moving, and somewhat healthy. This hurts, but I know you would want me to be happy, so I'm trying so hard. I love you always, the best daughter, Britney Ann. <3

Hey daddy. It's been a long, lonesome nine months today. Me and Jeremiah (mostly Jeremiah) finished the roof yesterday. It looks great. You would have been SO proud of him. I wish you were here to see it, since you knew it had needed to be done. Our anniversary and my birthday is coming up, and it hurts knowing you won't be here. You were one of the few people that didn't turn your nose up for me getting married on Halloween. If anything, you embraced the fact that I was different. You loved I expressed myself. I miss you terribly, but I know you're happier now, and feeling better with the rest of your family. Well, I just wanted to say I love and miss you. Goodbye. For now.

Happy birthday daddy, I miss and love you so much. This is so hard. I want to cry, but have to be strong....you wouldn't want me sad. I will make sure you're never, ever forgotten.

Happy Father's Day daddy. I love you. I miss you. This hurts. I wish I could hug you and kiss your sweet little forehead. I wish I could feel your hugs and hear your sweet, raspy "I love you too sweetheart." We normally would have went over to mom's and hung out and got you a gift and card. I had to occupy myself all day, and it was hard. I looked at your urn and wanted to cry. I know I have many more of these, and your birthdays, but I just had to reach out to you, and this helps me. My heart aches. So does mom's, and Jeremiah's I'm sure. Well, I should try and sleep. Goodnight daddy. I'll always love you.

I miss you every day. Every. Single. Day. I see and hear little reminders of you all the time. I remember so much. Like how you used to walk me to the ice cream truck when I was little, and you got one too. Or how every Valentine's Day you got mom a box of chocolates, and me a little one. Or when you built me a go kart at work and brought it home for Christmas. How we used to watch Pink Panther and Wild E. Coyote on Saturday mornings, and Beavis and Butthead after mom went to sleep, because we knew how she felt about me watching it, haha. Short rides to the store, or that one time I rode in the race car when you drag raced. You would stay up all night doing side jobs, to provide for our little family. You were stubborn and hard headed, but you always meant well. You got the job done. You cut up, but also knew when to be serious. You loved me and mom so much and it showed. I wish I could have you back. I love you daddy.

I miss and love you so much. So much has happened since you've left and I wish you could see it for yourself. You'd be so proud of me and mom, especially Jeremiah for all he's done for us. I'm just glad you got to see me do good for myself before you left this world. I still see little reminders of you from time to time. I think about you a lot. I hear your voice in my head, especially your laugh. I love you daddy, I miss saying that to you, and your tight hugs. Tell everyone I love them too for me.

I miss you. I feel like this emptiness will never subside. I wish you were here, happy and healthy; but I have learned I cannot have everything I want. I know you feel better now. You're with your family. You will never be forgotten by the family here though. Never. I love you daddy. So, so much.

I would like to start with Cecil was and always will be the greatest man I've ever got the privilege to know. From the first time I met him, he was kind and non-judgmental towards me, even though I was dating his daughter. I realized after getting to spend more time with him and even getting to work beside him on a few occasions that he and I had a lot in common. A few years later I worked up the courage to ask him for permission to ask his daughter to marry me.
l thought It was over when he suddenly reached towards me,but to my surprise he hugged me and with tears in his eyes said "I'd be proud to have you marry my daughter". I cried too...
Over the years we had lots of discussions about all sorts of things but never had a single argument. He wasn't afraid to tell you how he would've done something and I always listened because he had great advice.
He always let me know how much he appreciated me helping out with chores and would always tell
me how proud he was for the things that I'd accomplished. I am deeply saddened by his passing but I am forever grateful that I got to call him DAD..
Even though he is not here with us in body, his spirit and the memories will live on in our hearts forever!
