Happy birthday daddy. I had to push through this month to get to where I am now. I miss you each and every day. This day always feels so empty without you here. I love you, and forever will.

Here we are, the second fathers day without you. It hurts as much as the first. I love and miss you everyday. Not one moment passes that I think about you. We went to see mom today and you were on my mind strong. I miss making you cakes and celebrating. I hope you and your family are living it up, finally being together again. Hugs and kisses, your daughter.

I just discovered Mr. Ogle's passing as I was looking to connect with him about his 'Recycle Flyers.' My father is in his 70s and has Alzheimer's Disease now. He doesn't get out the way he used to, since he can't drive and feels safer in his own home. But he has one of Mr. Ogle's recycled planes and keeps it on his bedroom dresser, and he talks about it frequently. He shares a love of planes and was in the Navy himself. He fondly remembers Mr. Ogle from outside the Aerospace building in Balboa Park and asked me to find him to maybe buy another. I am so sorry to hear of his death and for the loss you are all experiencing. I just wanted to let you know his craft meant something to my father, and still does.

It's been one whole year today, and it still stays in my mind as fresh as ever. I held your frail little hand for hours it seemed, until they took you away. That little teardrop you had, and how you had withered down to nothing....Every little detail. My heart remains, and always will be broken. I love you to pieces. I hate that you're gone, but I also hate how much pain you were in. I had to stop being selfish and let go. You would still be ever so proud of me. Life is moving forward, and I hate you aren't a part of it. I can't say "I love you" enough. I miss your voice, your advice, your laugh, your tight hugs, everything. You mean the world to me, even with you're not here. Love, your daddy's girl....

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 Birthday Dad..I'm missing you everyday.

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.

Today your brother came home...

Barely a year later and we lost your brother, my sweet uncle. I have a feeling you all had something to do with this, you all wanted him home. I don't blame you. It just hurts us all here. I know my aunt is heartbroken, as we ALL are. I hope you're all finally united, in peace and harmony. Tell my family I love them so much, and I will see them soon.

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.
