Hey papa, I miss you so much. Why did you have to leave us so soon? I wish I had more time with you. I wish I never moved to Alaska. I just wish I could see you one more time. Days Like this I just stare at your picture thinking about all the memories our family had with you. Thanking god everyday for blessing us with such a loving, kind-hearted, funny papa like you. Your grandchildren and great-grandchildren had so much love for you. Oh and of course our parents (: sometimes I catch myself crying because I miss you so much, but I know it was your time to go. God gave you more than enough time to spend with us and he needed you to come home. Sometimes It just feels like a dream that you never left us, that your still home with good health. But I know your watching all of us making sure we don't get hurt or make any bad choices in life. And your guiding us in the right path of life. I just wanted to come and visit you on your guest book since I'm not home to visit you at your special place. I love you with all my heart papa always and forever. I'm missing you more than any words can explain. But just know that everyday your on my mind and in my heart!!! I LOVE YOU PAPA!!! And I'll come and visit you very soon my handsome papa!!!

I Miss you so much papa. I will Always love you. You'll forever be in my heart. My days will never be the same, for you have gone to a better place. It's so hard for me to accept that your gone. I'm just thinking it's just a dream, that when i return home I'll see your handsome face. Now all i have is just memories, but it's some great memories. Everyday I prayed my heart out for you to get better, so I could make it home in time just to spend those last minutes with you. I'm hurting so much because I couldn't be there for you, just to hug you one last time, and give you one last kiss. It's so hard facing life knowing your gone. But I know your in a better place papa. I'll cherish all the memories we spent together. But I know it won't be enough, I'm keep thinking I'm gonna walk into your room and hear your voice saying "Hi Kalena, who you came with?" Where's your mama?" just hearing your voice always brought a smile to my face. Now it won't be the same walking into your room. Our family gatherings will never be the same. Everyday I'm thinking of you just wishing and hoping that when I come home I'll get to see you. My childhood memories was the best having sleepovers at your house and you taking us to McDonalds. And we ALL know how much you LOVE your McDonalds and you always loved your apple pies (: I MISS YOU ALOT PAPA. Just never thought this day will come so soon. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS N FOREVER PAPA!! God took home a wonderful, kind-hearted, loving man who I'll always call my ADORABLE PAPA!!! LOVE YOU PAPA!!! Andrew said he love you papa and he will forever miss you. And he was blessed to have met a wonderful man like you!!! WE LOVE YOU PAPA!!!
