Dad, I dont think you realize how much I miss you. It's hard sometimes letting go of someone who loved me so much and who, in return, I loved too. I will always cherish that impulsive New Year's Eve David and I spent with you. It was great and we will never forget it. I love and miss you Dad. Always, Roberta

Dad, I miss our weekly breakfasts together, visiting you out at the house. I pray you are at rest with the remainder of the family. A day doesnt go by without a thought of you and we have so many memories of laughter and yes...our good natured arguements. Know that you are loved and missed. David.
