|Let the memory of Raymond be with us forever|
"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."
"Hi Dad, just thought I would drop by and say Hi. I miss you terribly. Sundays are always tough for me, I loved making you breakfast after mass. I just really miss you."
"Happy birthday Dad. Would have loved to do something special for you today. I would love to say something meaningful to you today, I would love to show you so many things today, but most of all I would give anything to be able to hug you one more time. Happy Birthday Dad. You are greatly missed by all."
"Hi Dad, well, christmas came and went again. I see no joy in it anymore unless the grandchildren pop in. very soon no one will be coming. I still grieve for you, and all that you meant to me. With everyone growing up, and moving on, you were my ray of sunshine. I wish I could just tell you how much you meant to me again and again so you never forget. always in my heart. love and miss you."
"Pop I do believe you would probably be the happiest person in Philly right about now. wish you were here"
"Pop, the Pope is in town. I would have loved to travel to see him with you by my side. thinking of you always."
"Wow I didn't know about this until now. It is really awesome to see pics of Uncle Richie and Pop. They're always on duty watching over us."
"Hope you and Aunt Dorothy are up above looking over everyone, and say hi to my dad for me and let him know I miss him everyday. I want to let Denise, Jeanine, Mary that I am thinking of you on this day <3"
"Happy Valentine's Day to you and Mom.Hope you have planted her a pretty garden of flowers. I love and miss you both so very much.I miss bringing you your chocolates and balloons. Sometimes I could cry most of the day thinking of goofy stuff you did. Miss that so very much.love always and forever,"
"Dad, I salute you today and every day. Not only are you gone and missed daily, But remembered honorably for the service you gave to keep us free. Wish this wasnt always so hard to do. I love you."
"This is beautiful, just simply beautiful. Thank you for the walk down memory lane. Sadly, I saw a lot of pictures that made me cry, then smile. Rest in peace Ray, Dorothy, and Richard."
"thanks necy, sometimes we all get cought up in everyday, but memories never leave us. Of all of us you and pop have had the funniest craziest and happiest of days one of my all time favorites was your custom tinsel. love ya forever pop and missiing you"
"What a beautiful tribute, just wanted to let you know Denise that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers."
"I just went through the pictures and listened to the music and am now relecting of all the memories. Just to know two people got together and created a wonderful family. Even though we do not all agree all of the time just know that you are all loved and are always my family. Thank you for this beautiful page."
"The love never dies, happy birthday pop ❤"
"My Dad always loved his kids and grandchildren.He would be so proud of them all now. miss you very much Dad. Love Denise"
"Thinking of you a lot lately, Dad. Not sure why. It never seems to get any easier.wishing I could just hug you and Mommy just one more time.Missing You both more with each passing day."
"Happy Birthday Dad. There are no more "just another day" days for me..Today is very important because it's your 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. You would wake up in the morning all ready to celebrate through out the day, needing a nap or 2 in between miss you Dad."
"Hi Dad. just sitting here thinking of you on the 4th anniversary . So much has changed and nothing has changed. you wouldn't even think it was the same neighborhood anymore. Myself and the rest of the families are learning how to go day to day without you here, but it is never easy.,never. Our love for you keeps growing dad. missing you so very much..loving you always."
"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 them.it always made him smile. my heart hurts."
"Hey Dad, well we are learning to get through holidays without you and mom in them anymore. We dont like it one bit. From the minute I put our turkey in the oven till I put the last plate on the table, I have you and mommy on my mind and in my heart.I miss Richie and Pauly and Linda too, but you were our fixture. I did however, have a wonderful time remembering all our past holidays.<3"
"I love you pop you will forever be missed. Love always the big one the other one and Anthony and all of your great grand children."
"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."
"Hi Dad. Well another birthday passed without you. I really miss the crazy gifts you would get us. 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."
"Hey Pop! Even though I don't live at home anymore I noticed that you've been following me around. Your flowers are everywhere, even across the country in Kansas. Crazy, I know. Its nice to know you're with me. Especially being so far from home. Missing you everyday. 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."
Have a suggestion for us?
