"October 21, 2016  HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOMPA

Time passes but not one day goes by that you are not here in my heart.  The day you died was not just a date on a calendar, it was the day when my very existence changed forever.

I miss you every day and will love you always."

"Grief never ends . . . but it changes.  It's a passage, not a place to stay.  Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith . . . it is the price of love.

It has been five years now since you left this earth.  I miss you and think about you every day.  I have been very fortunate to spend the anniversary of your passing with Donna.  It has helped a great deal to grieve with her."

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BOOMPA.  I think of you every day and miss you very much.  I adore your smile, I cherish your hugs, I admire your heart, but most of all I love that you are My Husband.  One of the hardest lessons in life is to let go, whether it's guilt, anger, love, loss, or betrayal.  Change is never easy, we fight to hold on & we fight to let go.  It will never get easy without you, but we created a wonderful family that loves you and will keep your memory alive."

"It was a picture perfect San Diego Saturday at Mission Bay. It was two years exactly to the day of my dad's passing that I was finally able to get his boat back on the water. I really wish that he could have been there driving the boat as that was what he really wanted. I sure do miss him and there is a not a day that goes by without me thinking of him. I love you Dad!  07/27/2013"

"Whenever I think of Dan I will always think of milk soup. Several Christmas's ago I made it for the first time for him, per his sisters request.  I had no clue what I was doing. Sure enough he loved it, it put a smile on his face. Everytime after that he would say hey "got soup"?"
