"A million times
I've needed you
A million times I've cried,
If love alone
Could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
No one else can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
Part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

Happy Fathers Day Dad, you will always be in my heart.  I miss you dearly."

"It hardly seems possible that you've been gone a year today. You were the best father in law I could have ever asked for and I love and miss you always"

"Happy Earth Birthday Dad,

Every year we would celebrate our birthdays together and this year I most certainly miss our special time and feel like a huge part of me is missing, 60 years is a long time to share our special day!  I cannot express how heavy my heart is because I miss you so very much. I know you are in a much happier place and no longer in pain and that gives me some comfort.  You were the best Dad a girl could have and I am so grateful that we could spend some quality time together the last few years of your life.  I remember last Thanksgiving how happy and excited you were to be with friends and family and celebrate your 90th birthday together, what a surprise it was that Eric, Robin and JoAnne could be here also.  It was a wonderful day.  I know in my heart that you are with all of us in spirit and when it comes time to blow out my birthday candles this year, I will be thinking of you.

I love you,

Soon Eric and I will be putting out your beautifully carved Santas on our mantle for Christmas and somehow I just know that you're up in heaven right now hard at work carving more!
Love always,
Your daughter in law
