I won't be able to call you and tell you I love you, and that hurts so very much. While I miss you terribly, I know you are still with me. I write this through tears of pain and sorrow, but also through tears of love and hope. I will always love you
Posted by Carlene Orloff on June 15, 2011
You had so many questions dad, many I could not answer, now I have many of the same questions. One day I will bring the answers to you. I miss you and your blue eyes and our many talks. I love you Dad!

Good Morning Dad & Mom,
I know its been awhile since you last heard from me. I try and cope each and everyday with loosing you. I have wonderful memories but some of my memories I have to push way deep inside of me. Some get the best of me. The other day I was driving home and I knew what I was about to do to myself, but I did it. I played "Red Sovine" and cried the entire way home.
I love you!!
Posted by Carlene Orloff on February 20, 2011
Oh how I miss you Mom & Dad. So much!

Well here we are Mom & Dad entering another new year. Yes we will live each and every day and we will finish out what we were brought here to do; raising our families working every day and celebrating birthdays and holidays; but we all now carry with us this void in our everyday lives. Oh how we yearn to hear you laugh & to hold you and say we love you!
Posted by Debbie Schletter on January 22, 2011
Somedays are harder than others, I long for your wisdom, so much to share, so much has happened. We are all ok, just like you said we would be. Dad you have been in my dreams a lot lately are you trying to tell me something? Mom I miss your smile. I miss your laughter. Thank you for sharing your most treasured love of Elvis with me. I knew first hand what he did to you.
I love you both forever
