I couldn’t have hand picked a more loving father! There hasn’t been a day go by in over 2 1/2 years that he hasn’t called me and told me he loved me and that I was his tiny baby. I will always cherish those moments but not only those moments but the ones that weren’t so happy, where I would get mad and vent and take it all out on him and he would just take it and love me through it because he always knew what I needed. Dad you have no idea how loved you actually are, you have no idea how much you will be missed. The world literally seems duller without you here. I wish I could go back in time and tell you I love you just one more time. I wish I could tell you how much you mean to me. You never gave up on me daddy, I love you more than I could ever express with words. I will always be proud to call you my father and even though I know you are so happy to be in Heaven with God and Andy, there won’t be a day go by that my heart doesn’t ache for you both. 💙

I will never forget Mike and the obstacles he overcame. Mr. Leeds and all the others at Dutch Valley Antique Mall got to know him and encouraged him, especially his loving wife, Karen. He was a hard worker and had a keen sense of humor. He had a kind heart and loving spirit. May he continue his journey on the other side in perfect peace with his god.

The man who loved my Mom the most and loved everyone. He was a walking miracle of what he had experienced from the time he was 3 until now. I love you and proud to be your bonus daughter. I'm sorry it took me as long as it did to accept your love for me. I am so sorry for the anguish and agony you had since Andy died. God has set you free and it is unimaginable how great Heaven is and to see the Lord and your family there. When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing it will be. Love always.
