Dad,
Still very hard to believe that you are no longer here. I've caught myself on more than one occasion, coming home from work and thinking that I'll give you a call. Life isn't always fair, but you and Mom taught us to do our best and keep our chins up. I know in my heart, that you are where you need to be and I'm happy for you. As you used to say, till we meet again, and I know we will. Love and miss you so much.
Love,
Keith

You are greatly missed. I often think of the boat rides around the lake. You would let your grandchildren sit on your lap and let them steer the boat. Joe, Tom and Elizabeth have many fond memories at the lake and in Maine. The BBQ's and getting the family together I will always cherish. You are in our hearts forever.
Love you!
Your daughter in law, Sue

I probably can't say anything that hasn't been said already, but one memory has stayed with me my entire life.
My brother and I were staying at the house in Amherst. It was a hot summer day. I was 5 years old. You took Danny, Doug, Don an myself to the Souhegan River to go swimming. I didn't know how to swim at that age. We were having a lot of fun, when you picked me up and threw me in over my head.
Sink or swim! I remember being scared,but when my eyes popped up above the waterline, I was swimming! And I've been swimming ever since! You will be missed, Uncle Eddie! Give Aunt Rachel a hug and kiss for me.
