Dear Dad,

It's been only a year, but it seems like forever ago that you left us. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and want to pick up the phone and call you.

You taught me a lot, but mostly your devotion to Mom and to your family.

I miss both you and Mom so very much. You said it wasn't going to be easy when you were both gone, and you were so right. It's not been easy.

I love you, and hold and cherish your memory close to my heart.

Love you,

Lisa Addeo-Colen

My darling sweet Dad and my wonderful and loving Mom too,

I will forever remember and feel your love, your light and your guidance with each step I take. You enriched my life by giving me your spirit of kindness and love. You were and always will be a shining example of honor, integrity and what real family should be and I will keep your spirit alive by giving these gifts you gave to others, in the way I choose to live my life.

I miss you both so much - your incredible friendship, your love, your kindness and your devotion to family. Thank you.

In God's love,

Hey Pops,

I spent Father's Day today writing a beautiful song for you called "A Day For My Father'. I will always remember your beaming smiling eyes as you listened to me play. I cherish those loving times and memories with you and Mom and they give me great comfort and inspiration.

Although I cannot hold your hand and kiss your cheek, I know you and Mom are there and I feel your spirit and love.

In God's love and light,

My first Father's day without you Daddy. You told me it wasn't going to be easy - and you were right. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you and Mom. I hold you both very close in my heart. The wonderful times. The not so wonderful times that brought us so much closer. I cherish all those memories. I love you.

Father's day is right around the corner. It will be a really tough day without you here. I sure do miss our breakfasts together, our happy hours, and our daily philosophical discussions. I love and miss you and Mom.

We talk about you both many times with your fellow Elks,and they remember the Good Times and will continue the Memories. Last week Susan and I stopped over at the Moose Lodge.."Yes,I Know the Parking is terrible"...But once inside, we had a flashback of the many fun evenings that we all spent "Dancin, Eatin and a Good Drink" seems like yesterday...We are looking foreward to doing this again....Let us know what time to pick you up? "YES!I'm still allowed to drive!"..Then Again..I have my Co-Pilot Sue.
Talk to you both soon. Love & Prayers+
Always, Werner & Susan

Hey Pops, (and Mom too)

I played a lot of pool last week and heard you laughing and cheering me on for the good shots - and giggling on the bad shots!! Thanks Dad. Boy, we had some fun, didn't we? I reflected on how many things you both taught me during my life and for that I am so thankful.

There was never a day of my life I didn't call you or reach out to you somehow to let you know I love you - I still do that out of the deep love and respect I have for you. I always have, I always will.

I miss you guys. So much....
