Dad, just got done adding the info about our family tree... I'm sorry I never had the chance to finish a good copy for you. You were fascinated and so excited to talk about our tree with me. I miss you so much. My heart breaks wishing I had one more day with you ... so we could just talk. I love you Dad.

Dad,
Sitting here thinking of you per usual. Its July 4th and nothing is the same without you. Mom won't play bags with us anymore, we don't get together anymore like we used to. You are sorely missed by everyone.
We talk about you often. Memories flood my mind, you making your furniture, your wells etc, playing bags and doing your little jig... those memories are precious to me. Its all I have left of you.
I'm heartbroke and there is nothing I can do about it. I do love you Dad.
I hope your having a great 4th in Heaven. We love and miss you Dad.

Yesterday was the first fathers day without you. I thought of you all day. We celebrated with family and friends but it wasn't the same. I felt you all day. I know you were looking down on us smiling. Happy Father's Day Dad. You were missed so very much. I love you.

Hi Dad, its just me. Been thinking of you all day,. It's been 8 months since you've gone away. I watched the clock all day today, remembering those few precious moments before God took you away. I don't know if you recall or not but I played your song, "Ride out the Storm", minutes before you slipped away. I know God was there with you, you were at peace even then. My heart aches everyday, but on the anniversary of your passing, it's a little deeper than the norm. I think of you often, your always on my mind, simple things remind me of you, everywhere I look, everywhere I go I see you there. Been working on my yard and every time I look over to the chairs in the corner, you know the ones you made, I expect to see you there, but your not...only in my memories. I miss you so Dad. Missing you so very much today. I love you.

Yesterday was Memorial Day. This was a holiday that we celebrated together as a family in remembrance of the fallen vets. So much has changed since you've been gone....there is no more family without you. Everyone has gone their own way ..no one talks to anyone. .it's really sad. This family misses you very much..you were the glue that kept us all together and now since your gone we've all come apart. It was just a sad day all around for me. I thought about you all day. I kept looking at the empty seat that you once held everytime you were here....I did get Mom to come over..so at least that was good. We tried to enjoy the day but it wasn't the same, just like every holiday something was missing. I don't know if you truely knew what you meant to all of us, but if you can see down here all of us now...well I think you would now know. Miss you Dad so very much. My heart aches and tears roll down my face...I love you and so wish you were here healthy and strong. You were desperately missed.

Its been 7 months today and I'm Missing you Dad. Even though it's Mothers Day, you always made it special for all of the Moms in our family, and because of who you were and all you did, my Mother's Day is incomplete.  I love you so much.

Today marks 6 months. Missing you today just as I do every day. Your great grand daughter Xeriah, who just turned two, was over a few days ago, seen your picture on the wall and said "Papaw...". I said your right, that's Papaw. You left your mark on all of us.  You'll live in our hearts forever. Love you Dad.

5 months ago you left us. I miss you more today than yesterday. I wish I could hear you say, "Hello hello hello.... or even Hi Bib. Wishing you were here. Love you Dad now and always.

It's been 4 months since you've gone to be with Jesus. On one hand it seems like yesterday and on the other a lifetime ago. Still missing you as much as ever. You have been on my mind alot these past few days. I hope and pray that I did right in my decisions that I made Second guessing myself as always. If I let you down in any way, know I am so very sorry. I love you Dad.

Missing you today. Sang Tight Fittin' Jeans before breaking down. I love you and I hope you're having a fantastic birthday, even if we can only celebrate with you in spirit.

Missing you so very much today. You were never one to want gifts but you were always appreciative. Hope today is a wonderful day in heaven as you celebrate with Jesus. Know that we are missing you and love you deeply
