Daddy, I will always remember you and I will always love you. I was daddy's girl, remember? You made the best chicken bbq and nobody has ever come close to your recipe. You built me a play house. You played Santa for me as I hid behind the living room door. You told me funny stories to entertain me when we worked in the field. You taught me to dance a polka and 2-step. There are so many, many sweet memories floating in my head. Give my sister a hug when you see her in heaven. I'll miss you so much but I know you are in a better place and will forever watch over me. I love you.
your daughter, Darlene

I will miss your peck like kisses when I hugged you. Your silly little snicker when you laughed. Your bacon and homemade fries everytime Stephen and I would spend the night. Your pictionary drawings...they were the best!! We love you so much grandpa and will miss you. You will forever be in our hearts.
