"Happy 41st Birthday!!! Today was full of mixed emotions. Celebrating your birth while still realizing you have passed on. It still feels unnatural to say those words. I hope you see from your seat in Heaven how much you are missed and how grateful I am for this day 41 years ago because you brought joy and light into every life you touched - especially mine. I miss you, Papi."

"It's been 3 years today. It feels like the day you died. There's a huge hole your passing left, and I haven't been the same since. I miss you so much. So much. It hurts, Kerry. It has every day since you left me."

"Happy Anniversary, Papi!!! It was 3 years ago today that we became husband and wife. It was one of the happiest days of my life. We cried, we laughed - we did a little bit of everything. Today is so bittersweet. I can't bring myself to laugh or cry. My thoughts are of what we would be doing if you were here. I know you are in Heaven with the greatest view. I'm here doing my best to make you proud of me. Please continue to be with me and protect me as only you can. I love you still."

"Today is Mother's Day but I can't help but think of what an amazing daddy you were to our babies.  I miss you so very much, and often wonder what the view from Heaven must look like to you.  You have to have one of the best seats in the house.  I will do everything possible to make you proud of me and carry on our dream.  Know that I feel your presence and miss and love you dearly.  -Bella"

"It's been 2 years and my heart is as heavy now as this time 2 years ago. I can only imagine the daily beauty and joy you have seen since you've earned your place in Heaven. You endured so much in your short time here, but now you can enjoy your eternal reward. I will continue to love you for the rest of my life and always be grateful for the unimaginable happiness and love you showed me."

"They say time heals all wounds but not the one left by your passing.  It's hard to believe that its almost been 2 years.  I know you're in Heaven and protecting us as you always did here on Earth.  My love for you will never fade, nor will the beautiful memories that we shared throughout our 23 year history.  Papi, I love you so much and I miss you even more.  Yours Eternally,  Bella"

"The holidays aren't the same without your bright spirit lighting up the room.  Your physical presence is sorely missed, but your essence is as strong within our hearts and these walls as it ever was.  As always, I love you from the inside out and always will.  -Your Bella"

"It isn't getting any easier as days continue to pass.  Every day, new memories come to mind that remind me of why I fell in love with you in the first place.  Just know that I'm working hard to maaking what was our dream a reality.  I do it, not just for me, but for you because you're not here to do it yourself.  I love you beyond all space and time.  I know I'll see you again in Heaven."

"Hi, papi.  As I daily do, I thought of you and the many ways you made me laugh.  I also thought of your beautiful smile and the way your presence lit up any room you entered.  The days here on earth only become more difficult for me without you, but I know it puts me one day closer to being with you again in Heaven.  You were my first love, and the only man who has truly had my heart."

This tribute was added by Essa Charles on 26th August 2012

"As usual, every day becomes harder rather than easier.  You were my wings, my air - and I feel like I'm suffocating without you.  Our spirits became one when we were both 14, but it was made official in God's eyes the day we married.  You have one of the best seats in the house, so continue to watch over us as you have thus far.  I love you without end, and can't wait to be with you again."

"Happy Father's Day, Papi!!!  I miss you so much.  Today was extremely hard for me seeing others out celebrating with the fathers in their lives, and I couldn't spoil you the way I used to.  Nothing is the same without you, and I don't know how to accept that I have to wait to see you again.  Just know I miss and love you so very much, and that you are forever my husband.  Until I see you.."

"It was your birthday last Tuesday, and the thought of it left me with so many mixed emotions because of all that has happened.  You would have been 39 years young, and crazier than ever.  Papi, you will never know how hard it is for me to face each day without you here making me smile throughout it.  I miss everything about you, especially you telling me each day how much you love me."

"Uncle Kurry is what i called him and man i have so many memories of this crazy a$$ man but 2 come to mind right now and all i can do is smile. When we ambushed you with water guns and you pinky and the kids mounted up, joined forces with us and we attacked aviano lmao. I will never forget watching you pick up my husband after knee surgery and carrying him up a flight of stairs. Love you UK"

"When I got word that Kerry had passed away, I was sitting at work.  Before I could stop it, tears were streaming down my face.  I just broke down right in front of my co-workers, I couldn't help it.  Then I could hear Kerry's voice saying "stop crying like a lil girl, you yellow Ni&&as are so soft", and I started to laugh.  The guys at my job must have though I was crazy!  Never forgotten!"

This tribute was added by Essa Charles on 7th April 2012

"Today was like every other day since I first met you - I thought of you endlessly and missed you even more.  Somewhere very deep inside of me, I know that we'll be together again.  It's the waiting that makes it so hard.  Just know that while Heaven and Earth separate us for now, my love for you grows steadily with each passing day.  I love you so very much, baby."

This tribute was added by Essa Charles on 3rd April 2012

"I fell in love with you when I was 15 years old, and have loved you ever since.  This lifetime was not nearly enough time to tell and show you just how much you mean to me, but please know that every day that paases is filled with constant memories and thoughts of just how much joy you brought into my life, this world, and now to Heaven.  I love and miss you so very much, "Brown Bear.""
