My love, oh how much do I miss you. My days appear so long and very lonely. I await for the stars to shine so I can wish on one of them that you are waiting yet for me to make our circle be complete. I know only God has that power, but I can still dream of seeing you once again. You are still missed by so many. Your name comes up in so many conversations even though it has been 23 years today since God called you home, but no one can ever miss you as much as I do. My love for you stays strong, yet I still want you close. One day baby, we will be close again. Your sweet twin, Daniel calls often leaving laughter with me as we finish talking. He's a great man just like you were. Pray for us honey, your children that are taking such marvelous care of me, your grandchildren are even doing their part, and your loving great grandchildren are learning the the true meaning of the word Love and that is all because of your blood. See you soon so save me a spot. Love you baby.

My love, yes you Donald are still so strongly felt in my heart. You seem to never leave my mind and I see parts of you in all our children and grandchildren. You would have been such a wonderful grampa. Those babies would have adored you as much as I still do. Missing you like crazy and wishing I was there, beside you, and watching over our family. Maybe someday soon my love, but until then, you watch over us all. We all love you so very much and all are missing you as much as me. Donald,Jr, is walking I your footprints and I can see you in him a lot. Hard worker and oh so devoted to Phyllis and me as well. Thank you forgiving he and the others to me. They are all great kids. Love you sweetheart. Save me a seat!

To the love of my life. Can't believe you've been gone 20 years. It's been so very lonely without you and I miss you terribly. You would love all your grandchildren and especially your great grandchildren. They are all so special. Just save me a seat. Can hardly wait to see you. Love you always.

This July 11, 2014 was the 19 th year of my loves passing. I still miss him every day and wish I was with him again. Donald left me with memories of love, his love of fishing, children, and grandchildren. There is no one that could ever replace him. My heart remains with him forever.

To my dad, the most wonderful man that ever lived. He was kind, dedicated, warm hearted, and understanding. He was always there when needed. He was my friend and my fishing buddy. I love you dad and like mom, unitl we meet again.

Sadly missed for the last 18 years. He remains in my heart, my memory, and my thoughts daily. He was my life, my love, my husband and the father of my children. I will miss him until the day I die; when then we can be together again.
