Dad, you were as much of a best friend to me as a father. We shared many fun times as well as hard times. You were always there for me and I for you. There will never be a day or time you will not be in my heart. I cannot express the anguish I feel with your passing. Your pain and suffering is finally at an end, not only from the cancer and ills of this world. But also that of the heartbreak you felt with the loss of Michelle. I know she was waiting for you with open arms! I love and miss you dearly.
My deepest condolences to the family of Chuck Reedy. Chuck was our supervisor at the Aurora Post Office. We had many good laughs together and I was fortunate to get to know him. He always spoke highly of his children and was a proud grandfather. He will be missed by many.
I'm going to miss you so much daddy. You were my best friend, my soul, my heart, my everything. I did all I could to make you proud of me, and keep you going. I guess it was just your time. I smile and put a huge front on for everyone especially Starlynn. You were the best and we will never forget that. Love and miss you dearly!!
It's hard to think of what to write at a time like this...with already so much death, to lose one more. Dad and I were never close in my younger days, but when I moved out west to Tucson, Dad was the first to volunteer to help move me out there. We left on his birthday in 2003 and over the 3 day journey as well as the week he remained out there, we were able to bond and forge a relationship that would remain until his passing. That was and continues to be his greatest gift to me. While it breaks my heart that I cannot be there, I take comfort in the fact that he now joins my late sister in the fires of creation, where life always springs anew.
