Dad, in the 10 short year I have been blessed to have you in my life you taught me just exactly what unconditionally loving a child (from a father's perspective) is meant to be, how loving the woman of your dreams is suppose to look like. I only hope that you know I will see your son through this and together we will show our kids how to love and respect their spouse, and children like a real gentleman would,. I thank you for opening your arms and your heart to me and welcoming me into your family.it's my honor to know such a man, the one I call my father in law! I love you to heaven and back, dad.
Marlene and family, My love and thoughts are with you all. I was truly blessed to have known Val and will always cherish him in my heart.
Marlene and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. We will truly miss Val. He will always be in our memories and in our hearts forever.
I am CRUSHED, having to bid my dad farewell. He loved me unconditionally, and I loved him. I am so thankful to have had you in my life, as my dad.
God Bless Dad . . .
