It has not gotten easier as time has gone on...
Hi Dad...Been busy with all of yourstuff. I found a really great picture of your Dad. I see by his picture that Jason has mouth and jaw line and Sean has his hands. I have been researching both Grandma and Grandpa so I can share it with the kids.
It's been one month since we brought you back. Emotionally for us kids it's been tough at times. We all know you are in peace.
Happy birthday luv and miss u
Today is your birthday....but you are in peace. Today I celebrate it knowing you are happy.... ~with love~ Jeanine
Hi Dad.. having kind of a day. Going through your movies made me cry.... for many reasons but mostly because you would just call me out of the blue to talk about them. "Walk with a happy heart."
Hi Dad...so... I have to tell you about Danika. Kassy had asked if I was sure you passed on the 10th. I told her no, you passed on the 9th but you know the whole law thing! Anyway... Danika had been walking around the house the evening of January 9th looking up at whomever was in her minds eye asking "who are you?"..Kassy continued watching her walk around the house talking and then she asked "Danika, who are you talking to?" She pointed up and said, "that man right there mommy!!!, can't you see him? Who is he? Anyway... we are presuming that you finally got to see your only great grand daughter!!! I will show her different pics of you soon but we are all quite content with the fact that it was you. I also know you didn't leave right away. Our hearts are sad Dad for all the things you missed...most of our tears have been for that reason. ~walk with a happy heart~ love Jeanine
Die happily and look forward to taking up a new and better form. Like the sun, only when you set in the west, can you rise in the east. ~Rumi~
Hi Dad! Today we are celebrating Danika's birthday. I will post a pic later!!
Sorry I missed yesterday...I had one burning at home. Bring and I had some reflection time yesterday.
Hi Dad!!! First day back to work for me. You won't be alone..Roxy and Tucker will keep you company.
Hi Dad.....I came across a horse necklace, the same as you had given me a few years ago. I attached it to Danika's dream catcher that I made for her from the ones you had sent. I will post a pic later. Walk with a happy heart! Love you.
My Dear Uncle John I miss u with all my heart. I know that u are at peace now I will miss our talks and u saying luv u kid have a good day you will always be in my heart and tthoughts forever luv u and rest in peace
Hi Dad..I know this is supposed to be for condolenses but since I am your daughter and my Cherokee heritage governs my heart I will utilize this as a journal for your behalf so you can see that you are thought of. I slept peacefully for the first time since I recieved word of your passing. Sadly though in my state of confusion, I did not realize that your spirit birthdate was the wrong year! No worries it will be fixed. I am going to spend the night with that adorable Great Grand daughter of yours. I have a great story to tell you about her but I will leave it for later.
Hi Dad.. I found this in your paperwork today. It has been one week since you have left us to walk in peace. "When I come to the end of the day and the sun has set for me,I want no rites in a gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little,but not too long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember the love we once shared-- miss me, but let me go.
For this is a journey we all must take and each must go alone. It's all a part of the Maker's plan,a step on the road to home. When you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends you know and bury your sorrows in doing good deeds-- Miss me, but let me go. Love you Dad!!!! Jeanine
His sister and his sister's family will truly miss.
