HAPPY Birthday!! I miss you. When we all get together that is when I miss you the most. You loved for your family to be together. We are doing good. You know we all stick together. We love and support each other. I would not want you to be here in this crazy world. Every day is unbelievable with what people think is acceptable.  God must be disappointed in the human race right now. I pray for his forgiveness, mercy and love. I will see you again. Thank you for loving us and the hard work you did in order to provide for us. Love you Daddy!

Hey Daddy! Merry Christmas!! I am sure things are lively where you are---you always kept the party going. Everyone gathered at our house this Christmas. I missed you being here. Timmy and Michael Paul are graduating this year, Becca is driving, Christopher and Samantha are really growing. Ali, Darrel's daughter is fun and makes Christmas more fun. Enjoy heaven! I love you.

Hey Daddy. I miss you. It has been 7 years today since you left us. It is a cold day today. The kind of day you would like. We all send our love. I know you brighten up heaven with your laugh. Believe it or not Timmy and Michael Paul are graduating from high school. You would be very proud of them. All the others are great kids too. I love and miss you very much.
