Dad, I'm a reflection of your love.
You taught me how to live.
You added dimension to my life that no one else could give.
I'll always be grateful to you, Dad for all you've done for me.
I hope that my life reflects your love for all the world to see.
Also for all the love and support you have given me and Pat

Love always Gary & Pat

Mr. John,
You were one of the nicest people our family has ever known. You accepted Mommy, David and myself into your family, always treating us with kindness. The RESPECT you bestowed upon us will never be forgotten. It isn't easy being "New Family" members into an established family. I don't think we ever saw you without a SMILE on your face. Even knowing your were a POW in WWII. You never spoke bad of the war, your German captors or your country. Much RESPECT for you and the service you gave to our country. A true HERO in the hearts and mind of your Family & Friends. David, Keilani and I may have never called you "Grandad," but our LOVE & RESPECT was always there for you. We will miss you dearly, but take comfort knowing you are in Heaven with Mrs. Betty ~ RIP
P.S. - Gary is a wonderful "Step Dad." We sure know where he gets his kindness from.
