Well Tom, yesterday was 1 year since that dark day in so many people's lives when we lost you. I would have posted something yesterday but as you know, a new little angel was sent one year to the day that you left the earth, my beautiful granddaughter, Chloe. God calls loved ones home everyday and in return we are sent His special, new innocent children to love. I hope heaven has been everything you dreamed it would be my friend- warm, sandy beaches, hammocks in the sun and cigars!!!

My dear friend,
One year ago today I found out about your passing. And even though one year has passed, I find my thoughts of you remain as crystal clear as they were then. You were a blessing to this world and to all of us who had the fortune of being in it at the same time and space as you. Every time, and I mean every time, I see the Michigan block M I think of you...and while it makes me sad that you are no longer here to root on your Wolverines, it also brings a smile to my face when I think of all the fun we had talking about them and my Tigers. I will always treasure the times our families met for dinner or just enjoyed each others company. Rest well my friend...you left the world a better place for you having been in it.

Today marks a year since I was sitting by your side in the hospital. I still can hear your laugh in my head and your voice calling Cupid "Cubby". I've come to the realization that I'll never understand why such a wonderful man was lost a year ago today. I would do anything to have you back. Miss and love you lots. RIP

Today is your birthday! You are 53 years old! I can't believe how much time has past since you left this world. Nothing is the same without you. I never realized how much of you I have in me. I'm so glad I was blessed with your strength. I'm sure I'm making a bunch of mistakes but I still hope I'm making you proud. I hope I've showed you how mature and responsible I can be. I love you more than you will ever know. R.I.P! Xoxo HAPPY BIRTHDAY POPS!!

Today is 24 years since our first date, I still remember everything about it. I know I always got the date wrong until you framed it for me. JULY 22. I was just looking all over for it and I couldnt find it, but Brent sent me a box on the day I was looking for it....and there it was. I know that was a message from you. I was in such shock when I saw it...thank you for all your love. I thank God for the years we had. I'm sorry for the bad days...but I will always remember the good and our wonderful family. I miss you everyday. You will always have my love! I sure wish we went to Hawaii when you asked me...that will always be our special place.

7 months have passed and it's not getting any easier. It feels like just yesterday we were laughing and talking. Ill always remember every little memory. From you always doing things better than me.. Like cart wheels, quarters, and smoke rings. To little things like driving around looking at the stars or just watching movies together. I miss you so much and would do anything for you to be here with me again! I love you daddy. 1-4-3!!! Xoxo

It seems impossible that it has been six months since I heard you laugh, saw you smile and told you I love you! Not a day goes by that you don't cross my thoughts or touch my heart. The happiness you gave me will never be forgotten! Love you more!! D

Everyday goes by without you here, every memory of you is another tear. I'm stuck in this nightmare that I want to end, waiting for a message that you will send. I know you're there looking down on me, and I hope I'm everything you want me to be. I can't explain how much I miss you, but for you there are so many things I can do. I will make you happy and make you proud, and all you're love and advice will be heard loud. I love you dad! I miss you soo much!

Tomorrow marks 3 months and I still don't believe its real. I'm here in Michigan and all I can do is think of you here. It's not the same without you. I think you would be proud of who I have become in the past 3 months. You mean more to me than I could ever explain. I wish you were here to share my life with me but I know you will always be looking down on me. I love you. 1-4-3. You were the best daughter a girl could ever ask for.
