Words cannot express how much I am going to miss you. I love you so much dad. You were my rock growing up. Anywhere you went, I'd be just two steps behind you. I will always remember as soon as you got home from work, we would beg you to take us out to grandma's house. 99% of the time you did and we would spend hours out there just riding on the go carts, golf carts, mini bikes, pretty much anything that had a motor. Those are the memories that I will keep forever. I'm not ready to say goodbye dad. So I guess I'll say see you again one day. I know you'll be waiting with open arms. Love always, your baby girl.

It's been a long time that we've seen each other but I will remember so much from our time together. You got me into wrestling and I still watch it today. Now I will think of you every time I watch it. You taught me a lot about cars. One memory that stands out is you and i riding motorcycles together. You had a 650 Triumph and let me borrow your Kawasaki 175. We both laughed so hard when I almost lost the helmet and about choked myself trying to keep it on and not wreck the bike. Your laugh is one thing i will never forget my friend. I will always cherish the laughs we had, the good times we shared. Rest well my friend.

It truly saddens me to hear of your passing. We have not seen each other in years. Back in the day, we were best friends and did everything together, from riding our horses to camping, hunting, fishing, go-carts, and dirt bike riding. Let's not forget how we used to ride our bikes all over Brock, causing trouble. Once we got older, we terrorized your sister Mary and made her drive us all over. Seven hills was our favorite road taking the old green impala air-born down that road then lying to your dad why the muffler was missing not once but several times. Making your mom mad and chase us around the yard with a broom, cussing like a sailor. I can't forget about Mark how he would padlock his room while he was at work so we wouldn't get in and look at his Playboy's. ( That didn't work )
So much more I could say about the crazy shit we did, and one day we will meet up again and talk about how mean we were as kids.
Fly high young friend!
