Daddy, I was so proud to be ‘Daddy’s girl’, you’re running around buddy. Thank you for all the memories, both good and not so good. But most of all, thank you for being my dad. I love you with all my heart and I’m going to miss you terribly.

That day I saw you in your shop cleaning your motorcycle and decided to stop is one of the best decisions that I ever made. I gained a friend that I will never forget, I will always remember the times from that day, we had a lot of fun during that meeting that continued for what I feel now was a short time. I enjoyed the rides and the times that we sit around your dining room table and just laughed and joked. I am going to miss you brother.

Opa, you are truly one of my most favorite people of all times. You made everyone who knew you feel like they had a special place in your heart. You always had a smile and a twinkle in your eye especially when looking at Ann. I'm so glad that my kids were able to spend time with you and Ann and get to know you both. Coming to Huntsville without you there will be hard but we will make sure we help Ann finish those projects that you trusted us to help you with. I will miss you deeply. Love you so much and thank you for helping provide Good foundation for your grandson when he was young so that he could grow up to be my husband.

My Opa. It is hard to formulate the proper words for this. I love you. You made a huge impact on my life growing up and I am forever grateful. I'm blessed the girls were able to make the memories they did with you and I know they will carry those with them. We love you & will miss you everyday until we meet again. ❤
