My Father, My Buddy, My Best Friend,

As my Father - You taught me how to be good, respectful, honest, never be afraid of hard work... There was not a training manual for any of this except by your lead, and you always lead by example! When I was out of line you directed me back to it ( generally a burning backside helped out ) , when I was feeling low, you lifted me up, there was always a way about you that gave me a boost forward... a sense of direction....

My Buddy- From the time I can remember, I always wanted to be with you, no matter what you were doing... Even if it meant a trip to the Library for research information ( which I felt was boring as hell!! ) it didn’t matter to me.. Helping with various wood projects, building wooden fences & gates, working on family vehicles, removing tree roots from underneath concrete slabs, splitting wood, trimming trees, fishing, camping trips, family vacations, snow boarding trips, None of it mattered to me, I was with my Buddy!

There are a lot of words that describe a Man , a Father, Brother, Uncle, Spouse, Dignity, Wisdom, Successful Career, Showing emotion to family, Patriarch, Buddy, all of these words describe ; YOU! After you passed away, I realized that I had lost my Best Friend.....
I love you Dad, I have always respected you, and one day I will see you again..

It also gives me comfort knowing that you and mom are together again & at peace...

Dad-- You fought a heroic battle-- as you always did throughout your life. I will never forget your fortitude and strength.
You lived a life of service, and always took responsibility on your back for everything , especially anything we needed. You saw to it we may not have gotten everything we 'wanted', but assured we had everything we needed. You were a man of few words-- discussing feelings was not "your thing"... but you upheld your motto you were famous for " Actions speak louder than words". You taught us right from wrong, you were there for both victories and heartbreak. You once told me that even though we (your kids) are now older adults, what made you happy " was to hear your children laugh". We have promsed to stay in touch and involved with each other-- and to spend time laughing together.
I know in time the pain will lessen. I will always miss you from my life. At the same time I KNOW you are with Mom and that I will see you again --
All my Love,
Patti
