Dad, I miss you more each passing year! I don't understand? It seems like just yesterday that you were transferred to your Heavenly home. We are sure you are having a blast. I miss you, I love you, and so often count the times we went for Bike Rides, Coffee, K-Mart, a Beer, whatever! Because when we went off together we had fun. This truly was to my advantage being the last daughter to get married. Because, many times I had you to myself while Mom was working at Dr. Florist or had her nose in a book. And, I don't think to this day that Mom really believes we truly went for a beer, but it was FUN! Love, Jean and George too!

Uncle Jake I remember all the bike rides up to the Ave on the handle bars of your bike. It was not to easy. And also going to the train station with my Dad and your girl friend Georgia to pickyou up coming home on leave in uniform.Those were the best of times. Your nephew Bosco.

January 22, 2018 marked my Dads passing from this earth, 15 years ago, and I would like to share something about his about his character. My dad had a gentle, loving spirit. He loved helping and giving to others, his time, talent and money freely went out to others. Dad was a very hard worker, holding down 2 or 3 jobs at the same time just in order to provide well for his growing family. His work ethic was modeled to me all my growing up years. Also modeled was common-sense, responsibility, and how to fix almost anything. Dad was not afraid to take on something new. As expected Dad and Mom shaped me into the person I am today. If I ever lose sight of these blessings, remind me of this post. Miss you Dad.

Daddy, how I miss you. I will always call you Daddy because you always liked it when I called you that (except for the time we were in Kentucky and I slammed the car door on your finger). Anyway, how much we miss you to this day. The birthday parties, Christmas gatherings and trips to Michigan. We know you are happy in Heaven, but we so miss you and remember you today. You were truly a gift from God to all of us. Mom misses you too. Behave yourself up there.

I do miss Dad. It was good to have him as a Dad, since my Dad had passed away in 1969. He was always cheerful, kidding around, and especially always working hard at something, whether it was 2 or 3 jobs at a time, or later, after retirement, working in his workshop, and helping the elderly people in the trailer park. He was a good Dad and Grandpa!

To my dear father, I miss him so much, he was a wonderful father, a friend, compassionate, witty, and always sneaking out with me (telling Mom) we are going to k-mart, and making a trip to Dunkin Donut! Mom misses you also, and we love you and will see you again someday, until then Dad, I tell all the children, grandchildren, go to Dunkin Donuts, have a cup of coffee and a donut in remembrance of you. It has been 11 years already but seems like yesterday your daughter, Jan Nelson Vinke

Dwight was the epidomy of: "It's more blessed to give than to receive". My brother-in-law was the most giving person i've ever known,and I knd I know that my sister misses him dearly, though he is with Jesus.
