I was talking to Shirley today, she fell and broke her leg really bad and had to have surgery and will be in a rehab facility for almost 3 months, I don't know if you knew she moved to the East Coast years ago.....we always talk about you and how "Savvy" we thought we were. Just needed to come and write to you, prayers to Gina, Steven and Jason, they probably don't remember us, as they were in school, anyways my dear friend if you see Max up there say hello for me. You'll never be forgotten and always be in our hearts.

There are days when I need your advice, your ear, and your ability to "ground" me... Today was one of those days. I talked out loud to you, I cried to you, I told you how much I missed you... I prayed that you were watching and could hear me. I prayed that you were safe, happy and golfing somewhere in heaven or wherever it is that we go. You were taken way too soon Dad! My heart aches when I can't hear your voice... There is so much to tell you... I'm gonna be a grandma and frankly really wish you were here to give me hell and tease me about it. I miss you Dad andI still need you here.

To My Dad on Father's Day

I didn't get to say goodbye…

I would have said so many things to you.

I would have hugged you tighter that day you said “I'll see you in a couple days”…

I would have told you that I still love you like a little girl loves her daddy when she is five.

I would have told you that I'm glad you were hard on me, and that it prepared me very well for this cold hard world. But I would have also told you that I know you had a heart of Gold.

I would have told you that your words and actions gave me the courage to demand respect, that I did learn how to “use my voice” and not cower or be afraid of anyone. (Although, you already knew that… and at some point probably wished you wouldn't have taught that lesson so well!)

I would have told you that you taught me to go after whatever I wanted with passion and confidence, and that it worked! And I was always grateful for that advice!

I would have told you how much I enjoyed spending time with you, especially in these last few years, as our relationship grew stronger, and that I respected and valued your opinions, advice, and the time we had together .

I would have told you that I got a kick out of your multiple personalities, and that I used to tell everyone you were the male version of “Sybil”.

I would have told you that, even though it drove me crazy when you said it, I always felt a glimmer of pride when you told people I was the female version of you.

I would have told you that I hope I made you proud.

And Dad…
I would have told you Thank you… Thank you for helping me grow to be the strong Woman I am today!

Wherever you are, I hope you know what is in my heart. Happy Father's Day.

Your Loving Daughter

Gina, Steve and Jason. I know your pain. It's so hard to lose someone you love so much. I've been told they live on as long as someone remembers them. I know he will live FOREVER !! Love to you all !!

Wally, you will always be apart of me. Thanks for believing in me. You've been a damn good friend. Both our families came over on the May Flower and we both graduated from the best school - James Marshall High School -- you '65 and me '79. You would have been fun in class. Love you much.

The Tumbleweed will never be the same. Whenever Wally was in there, there was laughter and a lot of noise.

His memory will carry you through.

I remember him as being one of the coolest guys at James Marshall High School. My sincere sympathy to his family.

Dear Steve, Gina, Jason, and children:
We are so sorry for your loss, especially for the fact you didn't get to tell your Dad/Grandpa goodbye. That's so tough and know it's a terribly difficult time for you. We send our heartfelt love and prayers.

Steve, you certainly "Did it your way". I have sweet memories of you bringing me a heart shaped Valentine candy box in the 6th grade. You were the ultra cool, cute guy and I was the shy girl with funny teeth. So very sweet of you!

You were a great Guy. Even though your gone you will always be in my heart. U changed peoples life, including mine. If if wasn't for you I dont know were my family would be. You will be missed deeply. I love you and I know your watching over us.

Dad, Im gonna miss you so much. I am really glad we found our groove in the last few years. Amazing how sometimes the smallest things can make you feel the best - I always called you "Daddy-O" and you always called me "Number 1". I loved sending you phone pictures of wine labels when I found a particularly great one and I could tell how much you enjoyed that by how quickly I always got a response. Our political conversations were so fun, something I really looked forward to. But mostly, I love that you lived your life exactly the way you wanted at all times. Many people learned a lot just watching how you opperated in the world. That is something I am so proud of. Dad, I love you. You were more than just my Father, you were one of the coolest people I have ever known. The real 'Most Interesting Man In The World'.

I miss you Dad.

Sometimes, when one person is missing, the whole world seems depopulated.

The world seems somehow different now that you are gone. The unbelievable void I feel can never ever be filled. I will miss you every single day of my life and, although the pain I feel seems like it will never go away, the memories I hold dear will help me laugh instead of cry. I feel greatful to have been a part of your life. You were an amazing beautiful man and I am proud to be your daughter!

I Love You Dad

Gina, Steve, and Jason, I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, not even to death. You will see a picture, hear a song, smell a scent, and its just like they are here. May the fond memoris of your dad carry you through your sorrow and comfort your today's and tomorrow's. We are so sorry for your profound loss.
Bob and Gina Kane.

You were one of a kind! I feel blessed to have known you. Give em hell up there!

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family and friends.

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,

I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake
with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart. (author unknown)

I felt this verse of the poem would be perfect for so many of us. He will always be in my heart and I will miss him deeply. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. God has taken a wonderful man from us. He will always be remembered and loved.
