Grandpa,

I have been putting off writing this because no words I could possibly write would even come close to explaining how much I miss you and the impact you have had on all of us. You are one of the people I admire most in this world and I am so grateful for the times that we had together. I will miss sitting with you and having a drink (or two!) at cocktail hour while listening to all of your favorite oldies, trying new foods at the best restaurants, and just talking to you and hearing your stories or cooking you your favorite meals. You lived an incredible life and left behind a family that will always strive to make you proud. Thank you for teaching me to be strong and always do things “my way.” I hope you are sipping on bourbon and having a cigar with your brother and parents in heaven. We all miss you down here, but I promise that we will all take care of each other and be okay. I have loved every minute of being your granddaughter.

Love you forever & missing you always,
Ashley

Dad,
It’s taken me such a long time to actually sit down and write this because it would be actually admitting to myself you are gone. This past month has been a blur and one of the hardest months not only for me but for so many of us. I don’t think Louise, Dawn or I will ever be the same without you. You have always been there for us and we never wanted to think this day would ever come, even though you tried to prepare us for when it did. We are all drawing strength from each other and trying to help Janet through it too. The world is different without you and so are we. I would give anything for 1 more father daughter birthday weekend, or to hear your music playing and the smell of your cigar coming from my lower deck, or Cocktail time and a chat on the phone with you to let me know papers were on their way and I better sign them and get them back as fast as possible. I wish you could have gotten to meet Dylan he would remind you so much of Eric. I promise he will know everything about the extraordinary man his great grandfather was. You were everything a girl could ever want for a dad, I will love you forever and pray you watch over all of us because we sure do need your strength right now.
Until we are together again, Rosemarie

Grandpa,

It is still hard to face the fact that you are gone. I play the the last few words we spoke to each other over in my head everyday, I just wanted to hear your voice one more time. Even tho you aren’t here anymore I still know you are watching....which scares me a little 😂 I’m sure we will have a stern talking when we meet again. Until then I will continue to use a spoon to twirl my spaghetti and always drink the coldest glasses of markers mark. You have taught me so much throughout my life, not only with words but more so your actions. You carried yourself a way I could not describe but only try to Mirror. I love you so much grandpa and I miss you more and more everyday. Have a glass waiting for me up there cause I’m sure as hell going to need it.

Grandpa,
I never thought this day would come. I still can’t accept it in my mind that your not here anymore. When I was a little girl I looked forward to visiting you because I knew our visit entailed a big cannoli at the end! I also remember asking every time I saw you, when I’d be allowed at the “big girl” annual dinner at the French restaurant. Every time grandpa would reply with, “once you wear a training bra your allowed to come”. After years of waiting, finally I got to go. This is when I learned that grated cheese on top of your salad is a must, and frog legs taste just like chicken. Just my luck, grandpa decided to move to Florida that year so I never got to go to the French restaurant again! As I got older I appreciated our time together by listening and learning from you, so many things that I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life. I knew I could always count on you to help me make the right decision. Thank you for being the best grandpa and my #1 supporter. There’s nothing I want more then just to be able to call you. I hope I continue to make you proud. I wish you could still be here but I know you are with us, watching over us all. I love you grandpa and miss you so much already❤️

Dear Dad,
I don’t even know where to begin. I can’t believe you are gone and I will never see you or hear your voice ever again. What I would give to be able to pick up the phone and hear you on the other end saying “what’d you forget you had a father” like you used to do if I missed a few days of calling. I could never forget you. You were the best Dad I could ever ask for. I was so lucky to have you. You made a great life for all of us and have always been there for me. You truly are the “Wind Beneath My Wings” My hero till the day we meet again. I will miss you so much. Love you forever Dad

The past few weeks I haven’t been able to put my emotions into words, it’s almost like I couldn’t grasp reality... or didn’t want too. On March 1st our Grandpa was called back home. He was strong, determined and hardworking. We all were truly blessed to have him in our lives. He was the glue that held our family together, and I know I can speak for everyone, and say we all are devastated. My grandfather has always been there to teach me things in life that I probably have taken for granted until now. Things that every young lady should learn at a young age, and that is how to act and know your way around the table when your at a restaurant. At the age of 4 I could easily order for myself and knew what fork I should use first. If it wasn’t for those French dinner dates once a year I would have never had known what the spoons at the top of your dinner plate were there for. I got to experience so many different things with my grandpa that I will never forget. He would always introduce me to different foods that I normally wouldn’t eat, one being frog legs. I can still picture his big smile every time I ate something new and liked it! We have so many memories that I can’t wait to continue on with my own family one day such as “little bird with the yellow bill” or the perfect technique for NOT drying out the sausage, and that fun polka music that we used sing to in your backyard when I was little. I love so much Grandpa, you will forever be missed ❤️

Dad,
One of the many reasons I looked up to My father in law is because not only was he business smart he was also street smart. Putting those two things together he was unstoppable, there was nothing he couldn’t do! Dad, this past year since we moved here, being able to see you more and spend some time with you was a blessing to me. I’ll definitely miss our time together. Thank you for always being there and guiding us in the right direction. You will forever be missed. Love you & Rest In Peace.

Dad,
I can’t believe I’m actually sitting here writing a memory on your obituary. My world is never going to be the same without you. You were the best father I could have ever asked for. From when I was a little girl, I remember looking at you and thinking...WOW I’m so lucky you are my dad! You were my Hero then and still are today. You used to joke and say, “what are you going to do when I’m gone”? Truth is... I have no idea😢. I hope to make you proud, to remember all that you taught me, to laugh and think about all the memories and great times we had with you. I just want you to know how much I love you, and to thank you for everything. You had an amazing life that will live on forever in our hearts. I love you Dad
