Gonna miss you dad !
March 2, 2013
I love my dad so much. I will miss him everyday for the rest of my life. I know that one day we will be together again. It was so nice to hear the wonderful words that his friends had to say about him. Someone referred to him as a "Gentle Man". Those words are exactly what he was. On his memorial we had " A Gentle Father, Rest in Peace". You are my role model Dad, I want to be just like you!

Phip was one of my fondest memories from our childhood on the farm.
When Phip came to Grandma & Grandpa's for a brief stay I knew we
would play together. I only regret is that I didn't get to see him again
since we "grown up".

Phil and I us to play together when I stayed with my Grandparents in Virgil, New York. Phil's parents lived next door to my Grandparents. We have been able to run across one another over the years. Glad I got to see him a couple of weeks ago up at the moose lodge when he was there with Doug. So sorry to hear of his death. I will miss him, but will always have the good memeries of our childhood. Sincerily, Bill Weishaupt, Bushnell, Fl.
