MY POP

All of my born life I only had one Pop . He is the best Pop, that any girl could have it was a pleasure to have him as my pop. Pop and Mom Mom had watched me grow up since I was a baby. Pop always wanted to play, sing and run around the house with me.
Anytime I came in their house Pop would always come and get me from my mom. He would always have something up his sleeve when I got there, you never knew what he was going to do. We will either play ball ,my bubbles or do something I wasn't suppose to do but that was my Pop. I will never forget my Pop.
I love my Pop to the moon and back and more. This is one Pop I will never forget, I was always have him in my heart forever.
Love You Always ROBIN

PERFECT DAD

Thank you Dad for who you are and for being a loving, caring and devoted Dad. We know that you love each and everyone of your 5 children because you told each one of us. We also told you that we LOVE you.
. I had always said that you and Mom raised us to the best of your ability. Dad you and Mom always gave us what you can. I think it was more then what you and mom expected. We couldn't ask for two Perfect Parents.
I miss both of my parents. You will always be in my heart forever.
LOVE YOU ALWAYS

MY DAD
Father God, thank you for todays turn out. A special thank you for giving my Dad 86 years on this Earth. Dad
was a great father to me, my brother and 3 sisters. A real Dad who loved his wife, "Eileen Sheckells" and just being home
with his kids. Dad worked everyday even on days when he wasn't feeling so good to take care of his family.
While laying in his hospital bed, Dad would still tell jokes and stories from the past. He called his kids to his bed-
side and told us that he was ready to go be with his wife. He also told us that he hoped that he was a good father to us, we
quickly responded that he was the best father ever, and that he was our Hero. We will miss you Dad every second, every
minute, every hour and every day. You will live inside of all of us ALWAYS. Rest peacefully DAD.
Love you
Albert Wilson Sheckells Jr.

Dad-
Thank you for loving & trusting me to be your person for the last 2 1/2 years since Mom passed! I have enjoyed every minute of our time together talking, watching baseball games, westerns, game shows, football games and the nightly news. We could always count on you to update us with the weather, local happenings or how bad the Yankees beat the O's! I will miss our holiday dinners, breakfasts with the amazing sunrises looking out that big picture window in your apartment and the sunsets when bringing you dinner.
You are the BEST Great Grandfather! Kayin, Nolan, Aubrey & Jaxon will miss you dearly. The boys have amazing memories of hanging out and playing with you.
Thank you for your humor, stories and expressing your love to all of us in your final days! I will cherish each "I Love You", holding your hand to comfort you and the memory of you singing "Blue Eyes Cryin in the Rain" to me. You do have the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen.
We know you are at peace in heaven and happily in Mom's arms again! This will give us peace when our hearts are heavy with grief and missing you & mom.
If every man could be as loyal and half the husband & father you are the world would be such a better place. I am so proud to be your daughter-in-law, thank you for loving me!

We love you Dad,
In the twilight glow I see them
Blue eyes cryin' in the rain
Joan

My memories of my dad are many. We use to play red line outside and really had a good time. My dad was a painter and many times he would get all of us to help fold the drop clothes. I love my dad dearly and never minded going to help out when he needed me. He often would tell me how well the Yankees beat the Orioles. I will miss him and yearn for my phone calls that have now ended. I love you dad and can’t wait to see you again.
I know now that you and mom are together once again, although it’s hard to understand at the moment but you are in a better place. May the angels in heaven keep you safe . I will pray that we all stay together and do your will. Remember dad I love you and will miss you daily.

I will never forget the love that this family has and has had for each other, it was a joy to help with caring for both Wilson and Eileen. May the angels be with this family as we celebrate the life of their father. My blessing and prayers will be with each and everyone of them. We shared many good and bad moments together. But most of all Wilson named me "peanut" and I will hold that forever. We will share with everyone the family memories and will see them both again someday. I will hold on to many moments and hope I can keep Mil happy through this ordeal. She loved her Dad and Mom dearly no matter what. And we will cherish this love forever. MAY THE ANGELS GUIDE US ALL IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
