You Were The Greatest! You Told Me To Walk Two Miles A Day, And You Taught Me How To Mow Your Lawn With The John Deere Tractor When I Was A Young Boy! I Never Forget The Trips To Florida And Virginia! You Also Used To Drive Me In Your Benz To The Mall! I'm Sorry For Misbehaving As A Child! I'm Doing Much Better Now.

Miss you so much!!!
It has been very hectic since your passing.
I am plowing through two surgerys and fighting each day to return to normal.
I keep in mind always no matter what that "each of us have a gift matter how great or small. We are all Gods creatures"
Last year at this time you were on the treadmill.
I was elated that you could do so well.
I miss you.......I miss Adam.....again.......
Thank you so much for your guidance and love. I was very blessed!!!
The best schools the best of everything.
I hope you are driving your boat around Heaven.
Love you

New Years came and went.
I wish you were here.
On our last day together you stated that the foliage was incredible.
I said " Daddy this will be here long after we are gone"
We smiled........i just knew.....
We always promised that we would go together.
I realized that....... I had bridges to build and fences to mend.
I will carry out all of your wishes as promised.
You are missed and loved....  
You are the most incredible person I have ever met.
I was truly blessed...
Thank you"

It's been a bit over two months. Still very hard to take. There are good days and crippling days.
This all reinforces how wonderful a father you were. I have hundreds of saved voicemails that I listen to that get me by each day.
You were a pillar of society and a wonderful father and person in general.
Miss you and love you always!!!!!"

It has been a few days over a month.
I wish you were here!!
It has been an emotional struggle without you.
I know it was your time and when I tell people how old you were they are perplexed as to why I am so grief stricken.
Well,you were my core. My family. Just everything.
Thank you!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!! I have been so blessed to have had you as a father.
It has been a horrific year. I pray that you have joined Mom.Tommy,and Adam.
Tough losing my best friend and my dad in less than 7 months.
Still prepping for the NY Marathon.
I pray you are at peace.
I love you forever dad."

I can not express the sorrow I have that your physical being has left this earth.
My heart is broken.
Selfishly, I had wished you would be here forever.
I thank you for your guidance and love through the years. If it were not for you I am not sure where my life would be right now.
We forged through against all odds together. We laughed we cried and We shared so much sorrow,love,joy and happiness together.
I truly am blessed to have had a father like you. I could call you at any time and we would talk for hours.
You accepted me no matter how crazy I had gotten in my younger years
I love you.
This will be a very lonley adventure without you since you were my only true family.
I thank you dad. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul.
Im so glad we were together singing and and laughing together the day before you died.
We will be together some day.
I am going to try to blaze my way through life without you.
Hopefully you are here watching over me.
Thank you thank you for the privledged life and the non judgemental love you gave me.
I am who I am because of you.
I love you forever!!!!!
