Goodbye dad,
I have been at loss for words.
I am who I am because of you.
You gave us your all to the end.
My best memories of you will be of our laughs together and of your love of nature.
Every year that the cherry tree in the back yard blooms it would remind me of you. You asked about the cherry flowers when I saw you last.
Your sacrifices for your family taught me to be a good husband and a good father.
I will miss you for ever.

Dear Mipop,

I will never forget that time when we went to the car show together and, we got cinnamon buns, and we went to see all the cool cars and we had such a fun time. I also loved drinking Nestea with you and also being your only grandson in the family comes with a big responsibility and ill make sure I carry that responsibility. I'm sorry you never forgot to see the cherry tree one more time but I hope you have one in heaven to take care of.

To our amazing grandfather...

Thank you so much for everything you have done for us in our lives. I will never forget you taking us to get ice cream in the summers, and spending so many days with us babysitting us when we were younger. These are memories I will never forget.
Dad has told us so many stories about you working hard to make sure you provided for your family no matter what.
Im going to miss our pizza lunches, and whenever I have pepperoni pizza, I will think of you because I know it was your favourite.
Life wont be the same without you medzpap.
In my heart I know one day I will see you again.

Dear Metspop,

I will never forget the memories that I have of you. You were an important part of my childhood and I will always remember you taking us to the park and having your favourite pepperoni pizza after. You always had a big smile on your face when you saw your grandkids and made us all feel so loved. I will miss you forever.

To our loving grandfather,

I am so thankful for all the memories we shared throughout childhood and into adulthood. Thank you for coming to my soccer games and cheering me on for all those years. I will never forget our long walks in the park and picnics in the summer. I already miss you so much and I feel so lucky to call you my metspap. I can't wait to plant my vegetable garden this year and think of you <3

Dear Pipop,

I miss you already. I know you’re at peace now but it’s going to be so hard without your smile around :’) Take care of Spencer in Heaven for me. 🖤

Goodbye Dad,
Your passing has steered so many memories in so many people which brings tears and smiles to everyone’s face at the same time. Takes a unique character to do that and I am proud to be your son. I will always remember you for the strong-willed, trusting person you were and the influence you had in making me who I am today!!! You saw the good in everyone and brought good will to you.
I will remember you always with a smile and miss you always with a heavy heart.

Love you forever

Your son: Jores

Rest in Peace, Joseph. My heartfelt condolences to your family. You'll be missed greatly. The world is a better place because of you.

I'll always remember your happiness and positivity. Your excitement when I first tried to say "Barev. Inch besses?... Lavem. Merci." was so inspiring and heartwarming. I was ready to go learn Armenian from that day.
