I can't believe it's been eight years today that I lost you. Everyone said that the pain would fade in time, but it still hurts as bad as that day. I would give anything to hear your voice one more time, to hear you say "Freckles I love you." I hope your proud of me Daddy. I love you so much Daddy and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you and miss you. Tell Uncle Greg, Nana, and Papa I love them. And until I am in your arms again, may God hold you close. I love you Daddy

It's been a while since I posted anything. But I miss you so much Daddy. Everyone said that the pain would dull with time but I miss you just as much today as I did the day you were called home. I hope that you are proud of the woman I have become, and the life I am living now. So until the day comes that I will see you again, I hold you close in my heart, in my mind, and in my soul. I love you Dad

I mis you Dad. You never missed one single football game that I ever played since my first year. You were a kind soul and a great friend to many. I'll see you again some day. Please tell Greg, Grandpa and Grandma hi for me. I love you Dad! Always have, always will!!

Your proud son,
Branon Snyder

Like every day you are on my mind Daddy. I am starting a new chapter in my life and it's so hard to not have you here to talk to and get your advice. I know your up there with Papa and Uncle Greg and I know you are still watching over me because I feel your love all the time. I talk to some of my friends who weren't lucky enough to have a Dad in their life, and I realize how truly blessed I was to have you. I miss you Daddy, I would give anything to have you hold me one more time and just to hear your voice saying "I love you freckles".

Not a day goes by that I don't miss you and long to hear your voice telling me freckles I love you. I am the woman that I am because of you. I feel so blessed to have you as my daddy. Even when I would do something that would disappoint you, you always would tell me that you were proud of me. You were always there to make me smile, or wipe my tears. I feel you with me everyday and I know that you are still watching over me and protecting me. A girls first love will always be her daddy. Happy birthday Daddy, my God hold you in his arms until I see you again. I love you

his Life

Taste of Colorado

Dad and I went to the Taste of Colorado one year just the two of us. I was maybe 13 years old and Dad had his handlebar mustache. Well there was this gentleman who was a photographer for easy rider magazine and asked Dad if he could take his picture. He told Dad that he couldn't guarantee that his picture would be in the magazine as he just submitted his photos and didn't have a say in what got in or not. So after he took a couple of pictures he looks over at me and says to Dad, "why don't you get your old lady in one with you?" I got in the picture with Dad. Neither one of us told the guy I was his daughter. We just took the picture together then laughed about it. Over the years Dad and I would bring that up and crack up. He was always so fun to be around, and always made me laugh and smile

Daddy

Shared by Heather Snyder on March 4, 2017

   It's been almost two years now since I kissed you last and had to say goodbye.  Yet time hasn't dulled this pain, and when I think about you it still makes me cry.

   I still needed your guidance and advice Daddy, I still needed you.  I still need to hear you say "I love you my freckles, your strong and there's nothing you can't get through".

   You were always there to protect me, and were my shelter when life was drowned out by the rain.  You were the first one I'd run to in tears, and your love would sooth away my pain.

   I know your in a much better place now, and I rejoice for you with my whole heart. But the little girl inside me cries, I wasn't ready for us to be apart.

   I know our time isn't over, and I have faith I'll see you once more.  The only reason I still mourn is I know I must wait till my soul is with yours again to soar.

   Dedicated to the best Dad anyone could ever ask for:
