You know saying goodbye is real hard for me so I’ll just say Thank you instead, there are to many things to list so thank you for just being you! You were a wonderful roll model I could not have asked for a better husband than your son and he learned it all from you! You are the best, Dad. I will miss you 🌺 Rest In Peace

Dad, there is so much that was always left unsaid but I hope that you knew how much I love you! I couldn’t have asked for a better father then you. I always knew that you would be there anytime I needed you and for that I thank you. I’m going to miss seeing you every day! Although I wish you could have met my first grandson I’m so grateful that the other kids got to know you. I will never get used to not seeing you in your chair every time I walk in your house. I know you are in a better place now and watching down on us. I’ll love you forever and can’t wait to see you again. I love you, dad!!

Grandpa you will be forever missed, but I won’t forget all the things you did for us grandkids . Nor will I forget always helping you out by fixing the television when you switched inputs on accident . You always liked the little things I did when you didn’t ask, such as bringing the mail in or throwing your soda can away. I love you even though it was never said! I couldn’t have asked for a better grandpa.
