Hello my dear brother,
Just wanted to stop by and let u know your in my thoughts with another holiday without u just breaks my heart more and more everyday for mom and dad because D they miss u so much and would do anything they could do to have u back I know it's selfish to say because obviously you were needed more in heaven but the pain and he emptiness does not go away or could ever be filled by anyone and time isn't helping so we r still as lost as we all were the day u left. So I know I always ask you the same thing but stay close to Mom and Dad and please try to help them ease some of their pain if it's possible never forget whether here or not we all love you the same and always will and we miss u terribly until we meet again fly high my sweet brother and shine

D!!!! It's hard to believe how long you've been gone ! I have so many memories that have you in them , you were like my uncle , brother , co worker and friend all rolled into one. I've had so many good times with you in the fire dept and you actually was the one that got me in the porta tank for my rookie dumping ( a couple years after me first starting !! Lol) , softball games and how close our families are and have been . I always looked up to you and treasured your company and friendship !! I miss your jokes and smartass remarks ! Lol . I rushed to the hospital when I got the call about you passing and I just couldn't believe it ...... it was like time was moving in slow motion. I prayed over you and asked God to except you into the kingdom but I knew I didn't have to ask on your behalf cuz he already had you with him no doubt! I was so nervous to officiate your services I could only try to find the words to be worthy of the job I had. I hope I made you proud brother . I hate that your gone and not with us here but I know thats my own selfishness speaking because I know you are home now where the Bible promises all Gods children will be without pain and the worries of our world . You are at the creators right hand in all his glory and now your glory also ! You are where you should be yet it's sooner than we would ever want you to leave us here . There's no doubt in my mind you watch over everyone from your new station assignment above us making sure we are safe guiding us and communicating with us in your own special ways . We will forever miss you my friend till we meet our end here and cross the river to see you on the opposite shoreline waiting to greet us home as we transition in our journey . I can't wait to give you a big bear hug ! I know my grampas rite there with you too ( help keep him under control up there please D! Lol) Till we meet agian my friend ...................

hey there bubba sure do love and miss you the days arent getting any easier as i think of you everyday as i always do they say time heals all wounds well that is a lie as my heartache is still there just like that day you protected us younger ones for years and you know what i sure do miss that as i am always talking to you not sure you hear or pay attention but i often wonder what you would do in certain situations and think what you would do i listen to that song you shouldve been here let me tell you that hits hard..Your birthday is coming up you would have been the big 50 this year oh boy we would have had a party and i would have got to spend time with you as we hardly did thru the years we did but when we got older we all had our own lives but that doesnt mean i still didnt love you the same as Dj you were the oldest of the boys and i am the oldest of the girls and sometimes i often wonder why you had to leave us so soon i understand your no longer in pain and i am greatful for that but bubba what about our pain as it isnt easing up at all still feels like the day you left us ALWAYS REMEMBER I LOVE AND MISS YOU BUBBA SPREAD THEM WINGS AND FLY MY SWEET BROTHER SHINE ON XOXOXOXOXOXOXOOXOXO
