An Irish Blessing...

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Daddy, there are so many things that I wish to say to you. I miss you every day since you’ve been gone. I think of that day that you passed away. I was there holding your hand and at the first time as a nurse I felt completely helpless. You are such a major influence in our family and I guess that’s why things have not been the same since you left. I don’t know if you can die from a broken heart but that’s how mine feels. I became a new mom since you’ve been gone. Parenting is not easy. It has been quite the experience. My daughter is 15 years old. She’s so beautiful daddy. I love her so much. I wish I could have shared that with you while you were here. You are our guardian angel and I always hope that you watch over us. Tom is dealing with some health problems. Me and Brigitte are dealing with health issues. Your granddaughter Brittany is pregnant with her first child. You’ve missed a lot of birthdays, fights and arguments, graduations, & celebrations. You would probably laugh at us because we are parents now or going to be soon parents. I hope my children will say the same thing that I say about you, “you’re my hero, you’re my mentor, my rock, my best friend.” Today you would’ve been 84 years old. I would be going to Publix right now and picking up your chocolate birthday cake. I know how you love chocolate cake. I would be on the phone with Brigitte telling her the time to meet everyone for your birthday party. You always made birthday so special for us kids. You did so many wonderful things for us all. You forever will be my inspiration! I wanted to say thank you for everything. You know how I feel about you. We always had a special bond. I will forever be your little girl. I love you daddy. Happy birthday Daddy in Heaven! I know mom is with you tell her I love her too very much. Your youngest child, Briana

Dear Dad, Happy Birthday in heaven. I miss you so much that words or thoughts can not even say. I was so fortunate to have such a caring and loving father like you. I am glad you are safe in heaven with God. Hurricane Irma came on the same day as your birthday. We all had to flee our homes. I know you are protecting us. You always were there when we needed you. I love you so much daddy. Happy birthday from all your children and grandchildren. Love, Briana

2 years ago on this day... I lost my hero, my rock, my best Dad. Feels like just yesterday when I saw you, and hugged you. I always felt safe when you were here. Life is so different without you. I know that you are okay because you are with mom. The family is lost without you here to guide us. I know you want me to be happy, but I'm not sure if I ever will be. My heart is heavy...I miss you too much. I don't know where I belong. I still need you. I will always love you with every beat of my heart. God bless you daddy. ♡#GoneButNever4Gotten #MissingMyDad #MyHeroMyRockMyDad

Dad, how much I've missed you. The days go by so quick and I feel as if it was yesterday that you were taken from us. Your thoughts and your spirit live in my heart. I know you are watching over me and our family but at times I can be selfish because I wish you were here. I wish I could feel your hug and touch your hand. I have been working a lot. I really love what I do and I do think I make a difference. You have made such a difference in my life and I am forever grateful for that. My heart breaks sometimes I try not to think too much I know you're with Mom and that does make me happy to know she has someone with her now. You were amazing parents. So loving and always showed us the importance of family. My heart is heavy today just thinking how much one person can change so many lives. Dad you changed all of your kids lives for the better. I love you Daddy. I pray to God that if I get a chance to go to heaven, I will meet you and Mom again. Please until then Watch Over Me. I love you Mommy and I love you Daddy. Your last child, your angel.

Tom Caulfield, you would be 84 now. How I miss you. Your house was two doors down from me, is not the same anymore with you not in it. How I miss those weekly visits. Pain and sickness no more for you, but emptiness for me for sure. Leon

Tom Caulfield, a friend and father figure to me. A man who knew life to the fullest. He was such a caring man, and his adventure in life were never ending. I couldn't wait till the next day to talk with him again. I lived two houses away, but God needed his treasure home with him. I will miss him always. LEON&JANET AUPPERLE
