Daddy, it has been over a year now, and so hard to believe that you have been gone that long. We still miss you so much! You were such a wonderful and loving father to us. I know you have a much better life now, with no more suffering. We will all see you again one day. Love you! Gwen
Daddy, I am already missing you so badly. I miss our daily talks, talking about what you ate for breakfast, what you were doing each day, and chatting about Wheel of Fortune. There is a hole in my heart now without you. You were always so good to me and my family. You never complained, and I'm sure that I didn't realize how badly you were suffering, because you never wanted me to know. You were so good to everyone and put others first. Everyone that knew you is a better person for having known you. I just wish you were still here for me because I miss you so deeply. It is so unreal to me now with you gone, it is hard to grasp. Yet, somehow, I have to move on and accept the fact that you are in a better place and at rest. Knowing that you are in heaven with Mama now provides some comfort. I guess there was a huge hole missing in your life for the past 2 1/2 years with Mama gone, so I should understand the feelings you had when she left us. You were such a special person, and will not be easily forgotten. My heart is aching for you today. I just hope that somehow, I made a difference in your life by taking care of you during your last few days here. I can never repay you for all the love, joy and goodness you gave to me and my family. I just hope that you are at peace and rest now in the arms of Jesus. I know you told me that you hated to leave all of us children and the kids, but that you were ready to go see Mama again. Your dream has become a reality now, so I kiss you goodbye in this life. I can only wait until I see you both again. My love will always be with you and Mama. Tell her that I love her, and I will be with you both one day! Lots of love and kisses to the best Daddy in the whole wide world.....Gwen
Eddie, Debbie and Gwen,
I am thinking of you all at this
difficult time. I always thought your
dad was such a nice and kind man.
My prayers are with each of you.
Take comfort in knowing that he is
with his Heavenly Father.
Debbie, You and your family are in my prayers. Your Daddy is with your Mom now and they are at peace. He left a wonderful legacy, you.
Dear Debbie and Gwen. I am so sorry about the loss of your father, but I know he is rejoicing in Heaven with your mother. I am glad you shared the photo gallery, which I have enjoyed watching. It is obvious that he led a full life in which he was surrounded by love. I am praying for comfort for all of you. Love you.
