"I will never forget that one of the last things you got to say to me "I'm proud of you,dude." That meant the world to me. I miss you more than you can imagine."

"Pa, you, Ma, Becky, and Edward offered me your home as my home away from home with open arms. I am honored to have shared many dinners and laughs with you. I enjoyed playing with Silly with you, and just hanging out. You were one of the best men I've known. I'm praying for your soul, and for your family."

"I remember back when I was in 8th grade, my class went on some kind of retreat for the day. The assignment called for our dads, or guardians to write a letter to the child, that we would read to ourselves that day. I remember seeing all my classmates with pages and pages of writing, but I only had a single torn bit of paper. I was sad and a bit jealous. Then, I read what the piece of paper had said. "I WOULDN'T TRADE YOU FOR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD." It was at that moment, that I no longer felt sad, or jealous, but proud. It took less than ten words for Pa to let me know that I was loved by him. I hold those words close to my heart to this day."

"I will always be daddy's little girl, and maybe one day make you proud. I love and miss you so much."
