Memories of my brother

Shared by Donna Allen on October 1, 2018

I thought of you on your birthday as always but had trouble with the site. I think of you often and remember how whenever I visited you I always felt so welcome. Your beautiful smile always welcomed us. I loved to hear you play guitar. In later years you reminded me of Dad. You would always say drive safely when we left. I remember visiting with Mom when I was younger. She would love to go visit you. I think of you often and always with special memories of our visits , your laughter and your smile. Loved you then and now. You are still with me in my memories and always will be, until we meet again ❤️

my dad was a man who had smiles to brighten ur day

who always made u feel good with his warm words of praise

and whats more he knew what to do to make wishes come true

my dad was someone who always had good stories to tell

but just as importantly he knew how to be a good listener as well

In Our Hearts

Shared by Marilyn Vincent-Robinson on April 16, 2012
We thought of you with love today,

But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.

If Only I Could Hear Your Voice Once More

Shared by Marilyn Vincent-Robinson on May 1, 2011

Hi Dad, In the two weeks since you have gone, I kept saying how I wish I had phoned you, it had been so long since I talked to you on the phone. My back was bothering me so I laid down to have a rest yesterday, and fell asleep, I dreamed I was talking to Crystal, she has been having a hard time of it since you've gone and her cell phone rang. I don't know if she has a cell phone, but in my dream she did. When she answered it, she said Dad, I was like, "What".. I took the phone from her and said "Hello, who is this?" Then I heard your voice say, "Hello My Darlin Girl"... Your voice was so clear, and sounded just like I remember it... I woke up before I could respond, but when I did, I felt so much peace. I don't know if it's possible, but I feel somehow you know how much hearing your voice on the phone meant to me and you reached out to me in my dream... I love you Dad, you will always live on in my heart and memories... Marilyn

A Very Special Poppy <3

Shared by Tina Vincent on April 30, 2011

I remember when you would take us every weekend and let us all sleep in your room, and watch movies all night long. We would sit there and look through your albums, you would tell us stories from each picture. Your place was one place I never wanted to leave. When we would walk through the doors, you would say " come give your favorite poppy some hugs and kisses". We were always so excited to stay with you. One weekend we were'nt allowed to stay because you were sick. Remember poppy when I called you and asked, you said " I dont want you getting sick too sweetheart", and I said " but poppy I will take care of you", and I would have tried my best. I wish Steve and Bella could have met you Poppy. One day we will all see you again, thats they only thing that gets me through this hard time. Please watch over all of us please Poppy, especially Mom, Aunt Sheila, Aunt Rose, Aunt Marilyn, Uncle Joe, & Uncle Dale. I never thought I would have to say Goodbye to such an Amazing person. You always thought of others, no matter family or not. Poppy you are so special to me; with a heart of gold. I want to write on forever telling you How much I miss you, but I know someday we will see one another again. I just wish I could have seen your face, and held you one last time. It's still unbelieveable to me that your gone. When I heard that night about what happened, my heart fell to pieces, and knowing I couldn't be there to hold your hand and kiss you, it was even harder. I Love You Forever and Always Poppy. 

Love: Your Pretty Girl. Tina. xoxoxoxox

My Precious Dad

Shared by Marilyn Vincent-Robinson on April 25, 2011

I Wish I Could See You One More Time
Come Walking Through My Door
But, I Know That Is Impossible
I Will Hear Your Voice No More
I Know You Can Feel My Tears
And You Don’t Want Me To Cry
Yet, My Heart Is Broken
Because I Can’t Understand Why
Someone So Precious Had To Die
I Pray That God Will Give Me Strength
And Somehow Get Me Through
As I Struggle With This Heartache
That Was Caused By Losing You.

 Oh this picture makes me smile so much! I love this. I remember this day, I wanted to be in the picture but I was too shy to look at the camera. So out of nerves, I put bunny ears on Mom. I also remember this hat that Poppy is wearing. I use to love the feel of it. It was so soft and smooth. It looks good on you Poppy! So handsome! <3 I Love You <3

I would have to say my favorite memory of my dad is when he stayed with me for two months when i lived in Stephville, We cooked together,sang together,and even shared a tear together, I havent seen much of my dad growing up so you can see how having him with me for them two months ment the world to me, The day he left to go back to his place i cryed and dad said don't cry me girl i'll be back :)  I wanted to keep him there forever. And another great  memory is the time dad and i made a tape of him and i singing ,i sure wish i had that tape now, i  think dad took it home with him,so it could still be around. I love you and miss you dad i well carry you in my heart everywhere i go, George and Patrick said to tell you they love you and well miss you very much , Watch over our love ones and keep them safe you are our angel up above  xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo   R.I.P dad
