"Hi Dad. Just thinking of all the birthday gifts I would get from you. How I miss them. I'm kinda feeling sorry for myself today. Some day's I feel so sad without you. I'm a big girl I know. But A big girl that always had her Dad. Sad or lost.... I'm caught between the two at times. I guess i'm selfish. I want to hold the hand that held mine always. I know you always made secret promises not to see the mistakes I made. For that I am forever indebted
to you. When Mommy left, you were all I had, I guess I took advantage of that. Missing you always."

"Hi Dad. It's an odd kind of day for me today. I watched your grandson's yesterday as they played with their children, I was so proud, and I know you must be also. I miss the days playing cards in the kitchen, or trying to figure out a puzzle you gave me, or tried writing down new recipes with you, but I had the most fun driving you around. lol. Everyday something was new to you. To say I miss you would be an understatement. My heart has been broken for many years now, But I always feel you around me. Please Dad, Don't ever leave me. Till eternity.<3"

"I'm not going to be able to visit you today. The rain is in the way. Just know I'm always thinking of you. Not much has changed since your last birthday. Except for the addition of little Milo. What a beautiful child he is. Jake would be just like having salvie around. He's very helpful with everything. Mia talks of you often. And the trips we would go on. Laci is a firecracker. She would be your biggest challenge. I love to tell them stories about you. I love remembering stories about you. I know you would rather be here having stock's pound cake , but hopefully mom's baking you something wonderful. Love and miss you. Happy birthday."

Just because your not here any longer, does not mean your big day is not celebrated. It's the perfect time to reflect past birthdays.

"Tonight is a familiar kinda night.So much familiarity around me. Remembering how my moms house would smell with the gravy simmering all day, the cookies being made, pop and Eddie making the worst egg nog ever. after the kids went to bed, we went to Sam Boyce's to pick up the toys that had been on lay away..most times we used a couple of wagons to get them home, even in the snow. Blessings."

"by now my dad's gifts would have arrived for us. it was always a big secret what he would have gotten us, even the ones in their 50's would get a surprise. we weren't allowed to know about these secret gifts, but I had to wrap them. he trusted me not to spill the beans. I miss those gifts so very much, because so much thought always went into always made him smile. my heart hurts."

"Hey pop, I wish you were still here to watch your children and their children grow. It brought me to tears to hear the hospital say its almost time for you to go. It has been 3 years since you have passed and the times before that will forever last. Oh how you made us laugh and smile even if it was for a while. Those moments are forever here and I know you are watching so I shed no fear."

Poor magazines may have went out of business with your passing.I always loved and kept the cards I got from you, I loved how you would sign them. Funny how things seem to matter so much more now. I wish I could have hugged you one more time.You really did mean the world to me. Missing you."

I'm sure you already know that we're having a baby, congrats on being a great grandfather again!<3 Love, Gladioli"

"Not a day goes by that some sort of memory doesn't comes flooding back of you Dad. There have been days when I find it hard to finish things because you are on my mind. You had a way of making us laugh that was all your own. And at times I just think of you and have to smile because of one of your corny jokes. I remember the strong person you were all your life. Missing you every day."
