"Hi honey, today is two years since you fell and broke your hip. I remember that night so well.  The beginning of the end of our life together. I miss you so. 65 years is a loooong time. I want you to know, “you will never be forgotten and every day I shed a tear, but it’s only cause I love you and wish you were still here."

"This is a poem I ran across in the newspaper. Don’t know the author but I can hear Rich saying this to me. It absolutely breaks my heart.

Do not ask me to remember
Do not try to make me understand,
Let me rest and know you’re with me,
Kiss my cheek and hold my hand.
I’m confused beyond your concept,
I am sad and sick and lost
All I know is that I need you,
To be with me at all cost.
Do not lose your patience with me
Do not scold or curse my cry
I can’t help the way i’m acting
Can’t be different, though I try.
Just remember that I need you
That the best of me is gone.
Please don’t fail to stand beside me
Love me till my life is gone."

"We went to the wood
And there we stood

Saying this ones for you
And I could tell everyone was broken in 2

With tears in our eyes
We said love you and our goodbyes

Even tho we were sore
Papa we will always love you forevermore

I love you papa❤️

"I can't believe it has been a year since you went away. I love you and miss you more than I thought possible. You took care of me for so many years and did such a great job, I'm having a hard time coming to grips with the fact that  you are gone. It is not easy and there is no easy way to make my heart understand. The pain is always there. Just remember ,,, if I had my life to live over, I would still fall in love with you.
It was worth the pain."

"Dad my heart is broken as I sit here and think it has already been a year since our last day together. That last day was the hardest day of my life. I knew you were in pain and I wanted you to feel better but at the same time I wanted to scream don't go I can't face life without you. You were there for me when ever I needed anything and when ever the girls needed anything. But what I remember the most all the time we spent together how special it truly was. I miss you terribly. I pray you are in a better place. You are in my heart and thoughts always!!!"

"Papa if your reading this or see me type this know that I miss you and the more it comes to June 14 the more emotional and the more I miss you and I can't believe it almost 1 year sometimes I wish that I stayed at the hospital with my mom than went home with my dad I just didn't know that you would be gone early the next morning and every time I eat a grape I think of you. Sometimes I feel that I have cried a river sometimes it feels like this is just a dream a long long dream and I can't wake up."

"There are no words really to say to make this any easier to handle. You were always there for everyone whenever we needed anything. You knew how to make us laugh and smile at all the right times. Today is a day I wish you were here to say something to make me laugh again and smile. We had a great life with you in it and now that you are gone we will have to always talk and share all those great times, funny stories and warm feelings when you were with us. Logan and Shelby will never forget what an amazing Papa you were to them. I promise to make sure you are always in their heart and thoughts as you are in mine. No one can ever replace you or fill your shoes. We love you so much!! I will hold to my word and make sure to always be there for grandma like I told you I would.  Rest in peace."

"May this flower repusent the essence of our love.❤️ You always did the stuff that we told you to do. (Besides eat.)  All the fish you caught, all the animals you hunted, they will all be loved because of you. Even though you would always sleep during an acation or just simply sit in your recliner, we would always know that you could hear, and would laugh, and listen with us. Becky and Tonya have seen their sign I haven't seen mine but I still know that you watch over me. I feel bad for my mom though she doesn't have the father that she had for the first 30 years of her life for Father's Day even though she has her real father by her side. The house he would sleep in, eat in, and be the best in. It feels so empty, and cold. But I still know that you are here. May love be by your side as you rest in peace. We will think of you always. Happy Father's Day Papa."

"My mom and dad were really good friends with the Wludykas.  I remember going out on the boat fishing with Rich when I was younger.  I was afraid of the fish and Rich had to take all my fish off the hook. And never complained.  I remember how much he liked to fish.  He will be truly missed."
