Happy Birthday dad, I know normally you weren’t much on celebrating your birthday, but this one will be a little different for everyone you included. It’s been almost almost 5 months since you left here but in many ways it seems like it’s only been a few days. While sadness will be a prominent part of this date for many years to come, I also look back on all the memories I was able to share with you. You were a focal point in my life for almost thirty years, my protector, my guide, my confidant. While I am sadden that we can cherish this birthday together I do feel some happiness that you can celebrate it with Paw and grandpa Harrah and aunt Brenda. Love ya Dad. Happy birthday!!

Son, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would see one of my children leave this world before me, the call that came that October morning was the most devastating message I have ever heard. Learning to live each day without you is so hard. I have put off writing this, as I felt, if I do not acknowledge your passing then it could not be true.
Your birthday will be soon and all I can think of is, only one more year until you could retire and return to West Virginia. This was your dream and we all wanted this for you.
I was so proud of the man you became, a loving father to your children, a faithful husband to your wife, a loving grandfather, a brother that was loved dearly. We were all proud of you.
Son, you were everything to me, I miss your daily texts, your phone calls, your hugs, the "I love you Mom", I miss your teasing and your laughs.
I know you had a rather large reunion with all your loved ones, I know that seeing 'your favorite aunt' Brenda, your Father and all your grandparents was a joyful time. I must think of that reunion to have peace of mind.
Until we meet again, I will look after and love the ones you left behind.
Your loving Mother
