I love you Dad. I miss you Dad. I am so proud of you and happy for you throughout it all - and your wisdom shall live on.....

I just sat there scratching my head while looking at the list of folks running for governor. I literally felt like a body dying of thirst in the desert & the only relief was an empty mug, another filled with sand, or a glass of 10 year old soured milk.

I just spun that wheel all the way to the bottom & wrote in: "MY DAD'S GHOST".

Love always, "knucklehead"

I met Mr. McCauley and his family towards the end of his struggle. It was a true blessing to know him even if it was only briefly. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with his family. (Chris, I will think of your father everytime I see a Fedex truck).
Blessings- Deanna

My Uncle Bobby could always be counted on to keep a cheerful spirit during our family gatherings but what I am most grateful to him for are his 3 children, Cathy, Chris and Bobby, my cousins. I remember how I, as a young child, would hold the infant cousins and was amazed by their coming into the world. You were and are still a delight to be with. May you three be comforted and supported by the love you have for each other, the love we, the family, have for all of you and, above all, by the love God has for you.

I also pray that you, Marianne, feel comforted with the love we all have for you and in God’s love for you.
