Hard to believe you have been gone for so long; but still ever present in my heart. I got married on July 19 2018, to the love of my life - Rick Wade. You would have loved him, as I do. He is taking good care of me as you always did. Miss you.

No matter how old I am, I still need and miss you. What a powerful influence you were and are.

Dear Dad; Still miss you so very much! Thinking of your birthday party where we gave you the fake cake. You were so funny! We watched the video recently. The cake was so hard, you couldn't cut it, so you stabbed it with your knife. (Cardboard box with icing over. Your favourite pecan pie underneath.). Love you to the end of time.... Judy

You always had a smile and a story to tell; but you were a good listener as well. You wil always be in my heart; because in there you're still alive. Your baby girl Wanda

Seems like yesterday you left us but it's been so long. Your memories are always fresh in my thoughts. I just shred a story about you and Nanna not realizing the day. Miss you, love you! Jamie

Dad you filled our lives with overwhelming joy. Whatever our need, our concern, you always had words of encouragement and hope. You built your life on God's word, He was your solid foundation. The last time I saw you very clearly I heard these words in my spirit, "see him clothed in robes of righteousness". Our love is with you forever. Miss you so much! Love Teresa

I'm a day late; but Rick & I were spending time with Judy & Neil and family, keeping the family connections going, something you were always very good at. Can't believe it has been 15 years since you passed; your love and blessings are present in my life every day. Love Wanda xxoo
