Thank you Uncle Jesse for always taking the time to sit and talk with me whenever we saw each other. You were never too busy to share a story and smile! You always made me laugh no matter what we were talking about. I will forever miss our talks, our laughs and most of all, your loving spirit. May you rest easy now in the arms of our eternal Heavenly Father. God bless you always. Love you!

My Dad, the first man I have ever loved, and will forever love. You taught me to always be happy in life, never mind what other people think or say. You showed me to love with your whole heart, to show affection, to always smile and enjoy the time you have in this life!

I know you are up in Heaven with my babygirl Sonya and our teddy bear Kevin Jr. Please hug them for me❤️

Sweet dreams up in Heaven, Sweet dreams to our memories, Sweet dreams until I can hold you again in my arms!

I will continue to watch over Mom and make sure she is taken care of.

I Love You Dad and Miss You So Much!

Ohhh my Dad how I’m gonna miss you and all you funny gestures!
My Dad always had something to say, always had a story to tell, a joke that would keep you laughing, and a smile that never faded!
He raised us to be kind but to never take any B.S. from anyone! To always be thankful, Respect our elders, and be good to one another.
Heaven is so lucky to have you & especially Sonya & Kevin Jr they have their Tata now!!
Please hug them for me, & give Grandma Dadding a Bodki kiss for me.
I will keep my promise and take care of mom & you please take care of my boy Kevin Jr!
Love you always my Dad Missing you Forever
Adios until we meet in Heaven
