Friday, March 14, 2014
I was sitting in my car on my lunchbreak talking to you as i often do but this time was different i thought i heard your voice, i looked over to the passenger seat and had a quick glimpse of you. It gave me a weird butterfly feeling in my stomach. Not a day goes by i don't think of you i miss you so much. Matt always told me that i take my grandparents for granted, that i should spend more time with them,that they aren't going to be around forever and i can never get them back and i never really listened.he was right, i could of spent more time but i cherish the moments we had i just wish we could have one more Sunday dinner one more birthday one more holiday, i miss you grandpa, love you more than you could imagine.

Sunday, February 23, 2014
Really missing you a lot the past couple of days. I went to Mama Nancy's for the first time yesterday since you passed. Couldn't make it on time to see everyone but I think it was better that way. I miss you so much.
Friday, February 21, 2014
Pee Wee, It had been a month since you left us and its been a difficult month for everyone. Karen and the kids are having a difficult time with your passing. A few times I thought I saw you only to remember that can't be the case. You were a very good grandfather and father to the family and a great father-in-law. I'll always remember the vacations we took with you and your happy go lucky attitude. It's a great way to go through life and more people should be like you. It's Friday so I'm sure you're playing cards so I'll let you go. Thanks for the good times and being a special grandfather. We miss you, Jeff
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
well grandpa, tomorrow makes it 4 weeks...4 very long weeks. I love and miss you so much. I talk to you everyday, I know you can hear me...I just wish I could hear your voice one last time. I hope the day never comes that I don't remember what it sounded like... love you

You are one heck of a guy and I'm proud to be your grandson. Thank you for EVERYTHING you have done for me and my family. I love you grandpa and may you Rest In Peace.

Friday, January 24, 2014
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

words cannot express the hurting I am feeling. you were always there for me whenever I needed you and taught me so much, like poker :) seat #5 will always be your seat! the only comfort I get is knowing you are no longer suffering.

Allie and Robbie won't remember you but they will know you through our memories and how much you loved them. thank you for being you.

please watch over us, especially gram. I promise we will all be there for her. I'll see you again someday. until then I love you to heaven and back. rest in peace grandpa peewee
Friday, January 24, 2014
Ahh, Don. I remember his green '53 (or '54) Ford - when you would visit us at 225 Lamont Ave - he would roll it down the hill and make it backfire. I always looked forward to that!
