To My Honey,
You were always so special to me and our family. If the grandchildren needed to know about fixing anything they knew where to find you!
You built our beautiful home in Eagle River, Alaska and as an avid hunter our freezer was always full.
On our Anniversary you played the guitar and sang to me "You are my Sunshine" and "Have I told you lately that I love you." We lived nearly 67 years together and girlfriend and boyfriend ten years before we married.
You will always be my Sweetheart!
Everyday there is something I want to show or tell you! I will always miss you and keep you closest in my heart!
You were my Gold Miner, My best friend, and my "Buddy"!
I will see you again someday!

I Love You With All My Heart Honey!
Your loving Wife, Margaret

To My Dearest Grandpa,

How could one ever put into words how special you are to me! The memories we have shared will forever be held in my heart. From gold mining, snowmobiling, hunting or just watching TV with you . . . each and every memory so precious!
I will never forget the day you took me rabbit hunting in Alaska! You handed me the gun to shoot rabbits for dinner that night - ended up I wasn't the best aim, so you took over the gun and by the end of the day I was weighted down with rabbits galore! :-)
You were not only like a Dad to me, but you were the most loving and caring Grandpa one could ever be so blessed to have!
I miss you so much Grandpa! You will always be with me!

All My Love Forever & Always,

I will always strive to be the man you were. I hope someday that I will be able to share with my grandchildren at least half of the stories you shared with me. Grandpa, you will always be the Greatest hunter!! I remember the day we shot guns together and you hit the bulls eye every time.

I Love and Miss you!!
Your Great Grandson, Jeffrey
