On this fifth annual day of mourning for you, I honor you, Dearest Dad, much-loved Pops. How quickly five years have flown by! Miss you today, as I've missed you every day since you've been gone. Miss your essence, your charismatic presence, your positivity, your rebel spirit, your smarts, your wit, your quirks, your mannerisms, your aplomb, your generosity, the way you said certain words and made the seemingly impossible possible, your supreme competence, your full-on New Yorker-ness, your toughness, your classiness, your down-to-earthiness, your levelheadedness, your voice, your laugh, your hugs, being able to talk to you, your encouragement, your counsel, your fatherly help in getting through this life, your pride in me, and more. Miss Mom too, so much, and the great love you two shared. I'll never stop missing you. How fortunate and grateful I am for having you two beautiful, truly special people as my parents, for the unconditional love and excellent life and education you gave me, for the sacrifices you made for me! You live on forever in your children, your grandchildren, and your great-grandchildren, sustained in our hearts, our minds, our very DNA. We all are a part of you. Thinking of you always. Loving you until the end of time.

Four years have passed since you've been gone from this beautiful, crazy Earth, dearest Dad. One thousand four hundred and sixty days. Hard to believe. Much has changed in that brief/seemingly endless span, except this: I've missed you every one of those days—and yet you are always with me. With all my love, your daughter.

Happy Birthday Dad! We all miss you so much everyday. The kids and I spent the day marking your birthday yesterday sharing our favorite memories of our times together, great times, funny times, and tough times you helped us get through. You live on in our hearts and inspire me to live this life well! I love you and miss you dearly.

Today, Dad, on the 83rd anniversary of the day you first enriched this world with your charismatic presence, I'm honoring your life and remembering all the wonderful qualities that made you the exceptional person you were and the dear father, adviser, champion, and spirit-lifter I miss so much. Signing off as in every letter I sent to you when you were still here with us: Love always & forever, your daughter

It has been two years since your passing and the loss of you is still so tremendous. Reflecting upon the rare qualities you possessed, I am continually struck by your courage, effortless good humor and wit, your humility and compassion and your consistent positive outlook, even during hard times. I continue to learn so much from you and the life you lived, even though you are no longer here. I emulate these qualities of yours, and much more, and try to instill the lessons you taught me in your great grandchildren. Dad, you are greatly missed – each and every day – you are in our hearts and on our minds. Sending love from all of us – Sam, Ruby, Alex and I, to you, dearest grandfather, we love you so much

Dear Dad, I miss you everyday. You were always our family bedrock. You enriched my life immeasurably, and helped make me who I am today. I will always hear your words of wisdom, compassion and common sense in my heart and mind. I will always think of your life and be inspired. I will always do my best to keep your memory strong with your great grandchildren whom also love and miss you so much. Thank you for everything you have given me. My love for you is unending.

My brother -- My favorite Short Stop and team mate. Jim and I played ball for the FAA team at Republic Airport right next to the runway near the Blimp area. He played Short, me at Third. Always a great competitor, great athlete, and great fun. A true "SAINT"! See you in heaven. Tom We'll miss your ready smile and fun-loving personality.

Not a day goes by without missing you, Pops: your unconditional love, your guidance and strength, your uplifting voice and wonderful laugh and personality, your great sense of humor, smart advice, and helpful support, your inimitable—often hilarious—take on life, your thoughtfulness and positive outlook, the way you always listened, raised my spirits, cheered me on, and encouraged me to be a better person. Through all the ups and downs we shared in this life, you were always there for me, without fail. Thank you, for all of it, for everything you gave me and did for me, for being a splendid father. Rest in peace, my dearest, handsomest Dad, my truest ally, most-trusted confidant, and greatest friend. Love you always and forever, your fortunate daughter.

Uncle Jimmy was the brightest light in any room. I miss his smile, his laugh, his humor. One of the finest human beings that I ever met and he made our world a better place. Miss you and love you always.

Jimmy was a real hero. He had a difficult infancy but he rose to be a class act. The world is not the same without him. Miss him terribly. Brother Frank We were all so fortunate to have had Jim in our lives. His good nature, great humor and caring are truly missed. See you later Jim! Love, Lois

I have met many good people in my life, but Jim ranks up there with the best of the best. From the minute I met him I liked him, and within a short time came to love him like a brother. If more people were like him, we would have peace in the world, and a lot more laughter. I will hold the memory of him forever in my heart.
