Today was an honor for me to be given your flag. We got the whole military honors for you. Like you have talked about in the past. It was a very nice service. But at the same time it was a very hard for me to hear taps and get your flag. To know you are gone. Your flag is all set up nice by Vanessa at home. I know you are with us always. Love you dad.

Gabrielle, I'm sorry for your loss. My memories go way back and it is of both your parents. My parents would go to Uncle Ray's house and we all would ice skate. At that time they were only dating. It was great fun.

He was always looking out for me when I wasn't home many times he told me of the various visitors that stopped by when I was at work. I also loved hearing him tinkering with things next door, it made him happy to fix something that was broke.

I will never forget when Bill pulled his truck into the yard and it broke in half. As usual Bill got out with the biggest grin, as we all laughed and kidded him red faced and all.

Hard to believe my Uncle Billy is gone. It was pretty cool growing up with my Uncle only 6 years older than me. We were miles apart but always close in heart. You are missed. Love, Connie

Grandpa, I'm sorry for not being around in awhile before you passed. I will never forgive myself for not telling you how much I loved you more often. You were my best friend and always made time for me when I was going through stuff. It's going to be hard to actually know you are gone now but I know you are pain free and happy with grandma. I love you both so very much. R. I. P.
