Hi Dad
It is so surreal that you are no longer here. It has been another really tough day for us. The girls came home from camp and we told them the sad news at lunch. The kids took it ok but as the day went on, the realization hit hard. I keep letting them know how much you loved them and how they meant everything to you. I hug them every chance I get. Once Jill and I told the kids, we told the world and let me tell you, there are SO many people that loved you, SO MANY, but I am sure you knew that. Just head over to bookface as you like to call it and take a look for yourself. Dad, I would give everything I have for just one more day with you. I wish you could have pulled through just one more time so I could remind you how much I love you but knowing you are no longer suffering has brought me some peace. I miss you so much. I miss your jokes. I miss your smile. I miss saying "love you, bye" every time we hung up the phone or said goodbye. I miss you more than you could ever know. I have been looking at all the pictures on your phone and that is bringing me happiness. Some pictures we do need to talk about, though. I did find this one and thought it was perfect to share. Your grandbabies loved you just as much as you loved them. We are going to start planning your big celebration and will keep you updated! I promise it will be good. I'll chat with you later. I love you so very much and miss you like crazy.

Hi Dad,

It's been over a day since you have been gone and I miss you so very much. The girls are back from camp and they are so sad. I keep telling them how much you loved them while I hold them tight. I wish you could have fought this one more time but I know you are no longer suffering and that brings me a little peace. I hope you found Matt and Uncle Dennis. I hope you look down on us often as I keep looking up telling you how much I love you. I miss you. I miss your jokes. I miss saying love you, bye every time we hung up the phone. I hope you know how much you were loved by all of us. I found this picture in your phone and wanted to share it with you. I'll write again soon. I love you, Dad.
