Dad, its been a week since you left us. It feels so empty without you, but we all know you are at peace with mom and Paul now. I still watch all our favorite shows in your room but its so hard not seeing you there with me. I would do it all over again Dad taking care of you, and I know you were thankful because you thanked me everyday. We all have great memories from our childhood to our adulthood. You made every christmas special for us with your trains. All your music that you played and recorded. Our memories will forever be in all our hearts. Thank you for serving our country dad and for flying the American flag so proudly on your lawn flagpole. I miss you alot dad, I miss not seeing you in your room. Your in heaven now and with mom and Paul for eternity. We all love and miss you dad.

Uncle George,
I'll always remember staying with you and Aunt Mary after my dad died.
You tried to cheer me up with pancakes in the morning, and your amazing train set!
I also remember you telling me, whenever Aunt Mary was pregnant, that you were going to name the baby Orville!!😀 I was horrified that you would name my baby cousin something so awful!
I didn't know it was just your crazy sense of humor!
Rest in peace with your precious wife, Mary, and your late son, Paul.

Dear Grandpa,

You were an amazing father and grandfather. I remember a few years ago when you let Michael and my father take you outside on the chair to watch the fireworks on the forth of July. You will truly be missed and I thank you for everything you have ever done for me. I’ll never forget about you, and all the times you told me anytime I wanted to come over the door is wide open. I’ll never forget all the conversations we ever had. But now I know you’re at peace with grandma and you’re not in pain or suffering. I also want to thank you for serving in the Army to protect the country and to give us the freedom we have today. Rest in paradise grandpa you deserve it I mean look at what a hard working and loving man you were.

Gone but never forgotten ever you are loved and missed

-love Laura

George,

I remember our morning routine: little conversations, watching Charmed and your jokes.

Always asking me as soon as i walked through the door if i needed something to eat or drink.

I really regret not seeing or talking to you before your passing .

May you rest in peace my friend.

You will be missed.

My deepest condolences to Karen, Roberta, Mark and the family.

Uncle George,

I marvel at the dignity and grace with which you approached life - always positive and upbeat. Your positive attitude was an inspiration to us all.

When I was a child, Christmas wasn't complete until I saw your amazing train displays. Thanks for all the memories!

Love,
Peter

Grandpa you were a WWII veteranthat fought to give us what we have today I will always remember everything we did together Saturday morning pancakes drawing pictures and making signs playing with the trains mowing the lawn putting gas in the carSunday mornings before grandma went to church you shining the flashlight in my bedroom window from your porch feeding the squirrels and bluejays eating cream cheese and jelly sandwiches cheese and crackers at lunch time or maybe a liverwurst sandwich you were always filled with joy and always made me laugh dressing up on Halloween and playing spooky music for trick or treaters and always loving us and fixing all our toys and electronics you will be missed and loved forever

My Grandfather was a man loved by many. He will be missed immensely by all his family and friends.
Some of my greatest memories we're spent with him and will stay with me always. Every Saturday morning he made pancakes for the entire family. They were the best pancakes in the world and he made them just for us. He had an mazing train collection and table that full filled our dreams as kids. We all loved playing on it. My favorite train was old smokey and the Superbowl express. He was Mr Fix it and could fix anything from my broken toys to my electronics, while teaching me to sodder and fix things for myself. The reason why I am so handy is because of him. I have so many fond memories of my grandfather that I will cherish and keep close to my heart.

Grandpa was an amazing man. He will forever be missed by not only me, but by all of us. I LOVE YOU GRANDPA.
