Richard...
I’m thankful we got a chance to see you last time you were in St. Louis...it had been years, yet you were still the handsome fella I remember.
I know you were welcomed into heaven with open arms...
And I’m sure by now you’re playing cards and maybe you’ve even found an Atari game🌻
Until we meet again...
Susan❤️

Dad,

You are the first man I loved. You set the bar high no one can compare to you maybe that why I can not settle for less. You are my hero, you may not realize just how much you have taught me, trying to drive a stick and almost crashing to standing with me always. No matter if I made the biggest mistakes you shook your head looked up and smiled ... what’s next ... my heart is so crushed, as is everyone’s who feels this pain ... but you are at peace, I will love you until I have no breath left .. until we see you again ... I love you ❤️

Well this is my third attempt! You know I can’t handle electronic equipment. What can I say.. you have always been here for me. I was only 15 when we first meet. You are the one that we all counted on to fix anything. Now our hearts are broken cause you had to leave us. The hardest thing I had to do was honor your wishes to let you go peacefully. I loved you so much and I know you are saving my place, but we miss you so much. You were the best of the best. Love you judy

My dearest friend,
You were closer than a brother to me.
I miss you greatly and I will cherish our memories forever.
I will see you again when I take that big airplane ride.
Stay warm and rest easy buddy.

Dad. There are no words that I can say here that I have not already told you. There is no way to say how much I miss you already. There is no way for me to stop this heartache for myself or my mother, sisters, brothers, sons, husband, grandkids, aunts , uncles and cousins. You were one of a kind. You were truly a special man. We all knew that. Do not look down and feel bad for this pain but smile down on us because you see we all loved you so deeply. Go and rest. Go and spend time with your Mom and Dad. And go knowing that you are loved by many. So many. I love you Daddio! You are the best and always will be!!!❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Where do I begin.....you’ve been in my life since I was a young child. My fondest memory is when Jim walked in the house with a bottle of vodka he found in your trash can in the alley on Southwest.....Judy and I looked at each other like damn we got busted......you had no clue that your wife was supplying us (my friends and I) alcohol so we would babysit five kids.....one Adam twelve we have a possible bust.....all the card playing nights when you lived in old St. Louie......till we meet again ..,..Love you old man

Life was not always easy. You did all you could to keep me inline, from trying to teach me to drive a stick to just managing life itself, I may not always have done right but I hope that I made you proud, you made me strong by being strong, you made me independent by saying if I can’t do it myself no one else will do it for me and you were right... I will miss you so very much. You are and will always be my hero.... I love you dad.
