Happy Birthday Daddy...I miss you and Mom so much. You would be so proud of Marina and Triston, they have grown into such wonderful, caring, intelligent young adults. Too smart to mess with drugs or alcohol and university bound with the same dreams they have had since they were little. Never changing or wavering and always focused on their futures. Love you and miss you both so much!!

Your Loving Daughter,

I forgot your birthday candle!
June 13, 2013
Happy Birthday Daddy! It's 3:41 in the morning and I have been sleeping since I got home because I couldn't deal with you not being here on your birthday. I know I should be stronger but I'm not. There is so much going on all the time and I could really use a strong hug from my daddy to get through it all. You would be so proud of Marina and Triston. Triston graduated on the 11th and will be at New Tech High with Marina in August. He was one of 16 people accepted into UC Davis's Bio Boot Camp this summer and will be identifying and cataloging reptiles, amphibians, mammals, insects, etc. in the classroom at Davis and in the Sierras at their reserve. Marina has been on the honor roll all year with straight A's and received more awards than anyone else in the school including one for being a Cultural Icon. Tell mom Marina teaches everyone about her Japanese heritage and she even started an Anime Club. Here I go crying again, tell Mom I love her and miss her sooo much too. It is so strange not to have either of you here but thank you for giving us Joyce. She is everything Mom wanted you to find for us and we love her dearly. We got together with the family to wish Matt and Kim good luck as they move to South Dakota to start a new chapter in their life. Again, it was weird looking at your brothers sitting under the tree and you not being there with them. I know it will get easier but it will always hurt. Happy Fathers Day, I know it's early but I want to be the first this time instead of the last. I guess I should try to go back to sleep since I have to go to work in a few hours. I love you and Mom and miss you both very much!!! Goodnight.

I have often looked back and thought of your Dad as one of the greatest people I have ever known. He was a great Dad. Such a nice man and had the knack of making people feel at ease. He always made me feel like I was important and smart and you know... I hope you and your family are doing well. Charleen (Charli) Atchison-Hawkins

Hi Daddy, I miss you so much. It was a strange and cold Christmas without you here. It's hard to accept that I will never again get a Merry Christmas hug and kiss from you or buy a present for you or wish you a Happy Fathers Day. Tomorrow is New Years Eve and Joyce and I both agreed we will move forward into the new year stronger for having your love surround us and with the intention of creating new "normals" for our family without your physical presence. Marina and Triston miss you and still are quiet when it comes to talking about you. They try to be strong but they miss you so much. Joyce is having a rough time but the goodbye candle lighting she had us all participate in the week before Christmas was both beautiful and painful. We will do our best to help her through this but its hard living without you. I love you and miss you and mom and I hope the New Year brings us all strength. Love from all of us, your daughter Debbie.

Well we took you to your favorite fishing spot Daddy and said our goodbyes. It's been 15 years since a good single malt scotch has graced my tongue but I had a drink for you yesterday. I know you were there and we saw your spirit fly free after we made you a permanent part of your fishing spot. Some truly wonderful people gave George a ride in their boat so you would be in the best spot possible. George and Rick tried to pay them but they wouldn't accept it. They understood what you wanted and become a part of a beautiful celebration of your life. Joyce threw a red rose in the water so her love could be with you always. Janet, Chris and one other man whose name I have forgotten all toasted your life with Glenlivet and George added sardines, yuck LOL. I guess you really do sleep with the fishes now, LOL. I marked the day with several other rituals too. I bought a new Camry and this was our first road trip. Mario, Marina,Triston and I went by the cabin and I told them many stories of our family days at the cabin. We also went geocaching and left a geocoin in a cache up there just across from the beach, it was appropriately called "Strawberry Fields Forever". Time for closure and to help Joyce move forward without you. She, and everyone, misses you very much. Eternal love from us all, rest in peace Daddy...

We are finally reuniting you and Mom this Thursday. I Feel terrible because it was always too painful to go there and see Mom's picture and trinkets all alone in the wall niche. Now that you'll be together I hope it will be easier for me to come pay my respects knowing you're together again. Mom has always walked beside me and now you will walk with her watching over me. But I can't touch your faces and its killing me inside. Joyce is our only parent now and we are lucky to have her. She has always been a wonderful grandmother to Marina and Triston and a source of love and guidance for me and Christel. You would have liked her Mom, she is exactly the kind of person you would have wanted Dad to find and he was lucky to have found her for us all. And don't worry Dad we will take care of her always. She misses you sooo much and I can't stand to see her in such pain and so lonely for you. I Love you both and miss you more and more with each passing day. Your Loving Daughter, Debbie.

Fell apart today when I found the birthday card you made me just a couple of months ago, the last one you'll ever make me. Suddenly it was so real and painful that I couldn't stop crying. I miss you so, and mom too. I know I'll see you again one day but until then my heart will carry this emptiness with heaviness and sorrow. I love you both so much!! Thank you for bringing me into this world and sharing it with me.
