Poppa, its so hard not having you around!! I miss you so much everyday!! I found a Facebook Message from you the other day that said you loved me, I couldn't help but to break down I just want to go up to you and have one of your famous bear hugs so badly!! I will never forget you, you were great person who is non replaceable in my heart. You were always doing things for others and not caring if you got anything in return. I have so many great memories of you that I will hold close to my heart and will never forget them and when Mickey is older I will tell him all about his caring Great Poppa who loved him very much!! I remember one night my dad was working and it was very late my mom had to take one of my brothers to the hospital so she called you to come over and never told me and she forgot to leave the door unlocked so you sat outside my window knocking on it until I got the courage to get up and see who it was at my window oh I was so scared and you thought it was so funny!!:) I also remember how you usually always took Kevin with you plowing during the winter but this one time you took me I thought I was the luckiest girl ever and I was because no one had a poppa as cool and fun as mine!! That Tweedy bird sweat shirt you got me I wore that so much even though I wasn't a big fan of Tweedy I still loved it cause you picked it out just for me and I knew how much you love Tweedy <3 Forever and always a Poppas Girl <3

Dad I miss you greatly! You were a great Father and very good man and someone a loved and respected a great deal. Dad there will not be a day that goes by that I do not think of you or miss you. I will move forward Dad, I have to and I know that you would want us to do. I know you would not be happy right now seeing us in this much sorrow, so i will do my best to be happy. Dad I can not wait to see you again when I arrive in heaven, but that will need to wait a bit because I still have alott here to accomplish, but when I do see you it will be a grand time! Until then Pal, know I love you! Rest easy Dad! Love Chris

Poppa you where always a big part of my life, from the time I was born to present. You will always be a major part even though you aren't around physically anymore but you will always be here spiritually. You were always a very independent, hard working person, that loved to be around family and to be outside. No matter how much time goes by I will never forget the laughs and the great memories we shared. I remember to this day we went into Taco Bell, went up to the desk and you turned and asked what I wanted to eat and I had fallin on the floor. We were both laughing. It's the little memories in life that last. I remember when you brought me to the races. I had so much fun poppa. I always enjoyed watching the races with you. I know you are in a better place and everyone in heaven probably loves you just as much as we do down here.
You were a very caring person always put other people's needs before yours. You could always meet new people so easly. You were always a funny guy. I love you poppa. I will see soon R.I.P.

I remember JB from 30+ years ago when he would stop by Hapgood Street back in the days of Cooper Ambulance; and he and I would occasionally jump in the rig together. A great guy, quick with a laugh, always willing to help out. You have done well JB, may God's peace be on you and may you find rest.
