John, Here it is almost another year has gone by since you've gone. I dread the month of September, I just wish I could bypass it. I still picture your beautiful smile, I still remember your voice and that little hop in your walk. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you or miss you. Most of the time I think of how mischievous you were at times then, I catch myself laughing out loud. But soon I get back to reality and remember they are just very pleasant memories. God! I wish you were here. Some days are good days and some not so much. I also miss those good conversations we used to have. One day we'll do it again. I love you son and for me to try to tell you of how much I miss you is useless to say, I just don't know how. Later, (Dad) P.S. Keep sending me those beautiful butterflies. They always make my day.
Hello John, I still have your number in my flip cell phone. Yes, I know. I need to upgrade my cell phone. LOL.
Still miss you dearly even more today that I can't hear your voice. But I can feel your spirit watching over me. Continue to Rest my Friend.
John, I don't know how to explain how much I miss you. It still hurts as much today as it did almost three years ago. The one thing that does help me is that I now know that you will never feel pain again and that you are now our Guardian Angel watching over us all. Until we are all together again, I love you, Mom
I don't know if you will get this message or not, or where you are even. But if the forces of life allow you to receive this message then here goes. I think about you a lot still. I think of how you are still alive, through me, through Graison, and through all of your loved ones, you live. A lot of the time I look at myself in the mirror and see you. The way I perceive situations at times reminds me of you. It is in these little things that tell me your life goes on through what I do. It makes me want to work even harder so that I can make your genes proud.
I do want to apologize because at first I felt guilt for missing your funeral, and your memorial, I made excuses but I knew I just didn't want to accept it, or see you there without breath. I didn't want to accept it and it was selfish of me, but as time went on I have realized it was the best thing I could do. I didn't want to accept it right there and then, when it did happen I was shocked. Almost two years later and now I can accept the fact that you are gone. Sometimes I wish you were here, so that I could have a father to talk to. Though I know you are somewhere, still alive in a new way. And though it may not be here, and I may not get to speak to you or see you, I remember that I am still a piece of you. And that, though perhaps saddening, is pretty cool. I hope you are enjoying the time and space of where ever exactly it is that you reside at this moment. I just wish you peace. And I urge to show you gratitude for all you did for me while you had life on this planet. Love you always. -Krissy
My dear friend, John. I only knew you for a short while as your Supervisor in the Military. I was getting to know you more once we both got out and started a great relationship calling each other and just talking about life in general. Miss you dearly, John. I know you are in Heaven looking down on your Family and True Friends, awaiting on us to arrive to welcome us in. I still have your number in my cell phone. SFC(Retired), U.S. Army
