Hi Grandpa. I miss you too. Your house isn't the same without you. Grandma hangs in there, but I know she doesn't want to. Probably b/c she keeps saying she'd like to die soon. Ah, Grandma. Have an oatmeal cookie up there for me today. I love you.

Hey Dad, I miss you. Mom's not happy with her situation. No one is, but doing our best to care for her. She misses you. Why not take her on a date, if you get my drift. I know you do. I can share anything with you. I may miss the Fest this year. A bad tooth. But keeping up your tradition and getting it pulled today. Wish me luck. Your loving daughter, Colleen

Can't believe it's been 2 years, I really miss him, he was such a fun and caring person. I will always remember watching baseball games down at the shore, going down the beach and watching him going into the water like a little kid, and he was in his 80's. Take care, Reyes,

I have sweet memories of Reyes proudly showing off his wooden birds in the workshop in the basement. Calm, quiet and creative.

I will always remember our times at the shore, watching the All Star Games and the wonderful times on the beach (watching him in his 80's on the Boogie board and riding the waves! WOW). xxxoo Conway's
