"Papa C. we miss you very much!!! I know you are watching down on us and smiling as we go through our days. Not one of those days goes by that you are not in our thoughts and Leigh and I both take turns telling each other how much we miss you and then share a story about you. I talk about you often to Emma and Joleigh. They both have your bright spirit and your gift of conversation. Sometimes I think Emma doesn't breathe she talks so much. Joleigh has your love of dancing. She seems to have music in every move she makes. I use your examples to try and guide Taylor and Ashton as they find their way into manhood. You are a great example to aspire to. Thank you for encouraging me so much to release my music. Your talks about that were full of hope and encouragement and I wish you were here to see that although I know you see everything from a much better place now. Until we meet again in that place sir just know you are missed and you live in our hearts always."

"Yesterday was the 2 year anniversary of my fathers death. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him as my own words and actions are a strong reflection of his personality.

He was the master of the "pep talk" and I know many, including myself could have used one of those over the last couple of years.

Always the showman and competitor, I miss the way he interacted with his grand kids during any of our "holiday decorating contests" (pumpkin carving, Christmas cookies or Easter eggs). "I will crush you all!" would always garner a laugh and a renewed seriousness to the event.

I miss hearing "Hey Guissep!" which was the customary greeting I received on the phone with him. His many hours on the road traveling for work gave him the time to routinely call family and friends to keep in touch. I know those calls are missed by many!

My Dad worked hard his whole life and I must admit that I am bitter he was taken just as he was crossing the finish line and into retirement. I remind myself that tomorrow is promised to no one and am grateful for the time I had spent with him and that he was my father.

I miss you Dad."

Miss everything about you, your smile, your love, your forgiving nature, your love of life itself.  You could always make me laugh and see the positive in everyone.  Miss our chats over coffee and cookies, our evenings snuggling on the couch, our morning breakfast to start our day.  Love and miss you so much."

"Joe its been two years today since I heard your voice for the last time, five days later you would take your last breathe.  I miss you brother.  I miss your voice, your humor, the all of you.  I am so sad your not here.  Time does not really ease the pain it just put more time between our last conversation. I am so grateful to have had you in my life.  I will never understand why god choose that time for you, I think he was waiting on you to find happiness, security and closure.  All which you accomplished.  You carried enough grief so you left with a full, glad  heart.  You will be thought of everyday and loved by me until my time on this earth is over.  Rest.  Love you xo"
