Ivan, you were so strong and proud . Your love for your wife (Jane) was still growing stronger till the end. When I saw the kiss you gave each other a few days before you passed, it brought such tears of joy to my heart that I knew you were at peace and ready to move on and watch over us, until we meet again.
You will be missed, Love you.

You were a prideful and humble man to the end and we could see that you were so tired. You hung on wanting to make sure that mom, your wife, would be safe and cared for because that was the kind of man you were. When mom reassured you that she was going to be alright it was then you released your weakened body and quietly slipped away. You will forever be with us, you are loved by so many. You lived a full life and now it is time for you to rest.
Love,
Tricia

Grandpa Ivan,
Although your path has come to an end, the tender memories will always live on. May your tired eyes shine once again, please know that your job here on Earth is done. No worries.. No pain.. Nothing to gain.. Please send me a sign to let me know you're okay. Take your time Grandpa, you don't have to figure it all out in one day.

I love you, I miss you, XOXO
It's me Grandpa.. Jill
