Calling heaven to say I love you Dad. Was 5 years ago yesterday, but feels like so much longer without you here. So many people here miss you and love you so much. Yesterday, was a good day for me as Randy flew out to visit me in Yuma. I will be taking him up to see Mom next weekend, he's excited. We will have a great time. I don't just miss you on the anniversary of your death, I miss you every single day! God has been so good to me and my kids and I feel so blessed to have you as my guardian angel, I feel your presence all the time ❤ I thank God for allowing me that feeling ❤ Have a great day with Jesus Dad! Talk to you soon!

Making my special call tonight to you Dad, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I have missed you so very much! You can't possibly know how much I appreciate you being my Dad and how much I wish you were here with us today, as it's now my 1st anniversary, your birthday and the week that God allowed me to move HOME! I am temporarily staying at the home YOU & MOM Created. It's so surreal!! I feel your presence more and more every day! Please continue to watch over me and the boys as you always do! We couldn't get through the pain of missing you without knowing you are watching and helping guide us! I thank our Lord everyday that he allows you to be with us too! Until the next call, I love you so deeply and miss you so much! Happy Birthday Dad ❤❤

My condolences to Pat and your entire family. I just stumbled across this guest book today. I remember being so happy when my best friend's Mom fell in love with Ken. You were such a special couple. The two of you, and my dear childhood friend Sheila, are forever in my heart. God bless you and may you find comfort in your many memories.

Making a call to heaven tonight Dad, just wanting to say how very much I miss you. I have tried to make it home for Christmas and Thanksgiving since you've been gone. We always have a special time with Mom, Always. But geeze Dad, I really miss seeing you, hearing your voice, or your laugh! The twinkle in your eyes when I would drive up the lane at the beginning of my visit and the tear in your eye as I had to leave down the lane. I miss all the smiles, laughter and memories made in between too! I love you so much still Dad. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you, or say to someone how much I miss you! I share memories of you with the boys and they share their memories of you with me. I never want them to forget you or them to forget how much you meant to me! You and Mom are my world and I have so much appreciation for both of you. Just wanted you to know that tonight, Dad. I love and miss you so very much!. Hope you're allowed this call to ring to you and allowed to feel the love that comes with these words! .... <3 hugs and Kisses!

Good morning Dad! I am making another call to heaven to say I love you and I miss you, there's a lot going on in my world with work, raisig the kids and now health issues! Not a day goes by that I don't remember at least One thing in life, that you taught me (sometimes its a moral or a certain way to do something, or it might be how to treat someone you care about or how to treat a stranger or most importantly how to love my children). I have learned so many things from you (by example), you were the greatest teacher! I just miss you so much Dad! <3 Love you bunches and bunches!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!! Today is such a special day, because its YOUR day! I think of you every single day, literally I have a huge picture of you with Mom and me in my bedroom to be the first thing I see! I remember all the good times, funny times and all the tears. I get flooded with emotions every time I think of you. But the most important emotion I get is that of gratitude! I am soooo grateful that YOU were my Daddy! I couldn't have asked for a better man and role model to want to be in my life! So here's my call to heaven tonight to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful Dad and to let you know I love you and miss you everyday! Hugs and kisses Dad! <3

Not a day goes by thatI don't look at a picture of the home you and Pat built. I truly love that little place of paradise. I do my best to help keep things in working order when Gina and I visit. I feel your presence when I'm there, as I did when I proposed to Gina on the very bridge you built. She happily said "yes" and we will be married there soon! I love Gina very much and I am proud to have known you.
It is comforting to know that you are watching over all of us! :-)

Rest in Eternal Peace my friend.

Hi Daddy, I'm making another call to heaven.... I miss you soooo much! I've been home so many times since you have been gone, each time I miss you more! But this last time was for Christmas, I was having a hard day missing YOU, So Mom took me and showed me some pictures and told me how much She and You have always loved me and we both felt so close to you Christmas morning while we were talking. I know you were there. Then John took me for a walk out to the bridge you built and proposed to me. Mom took a picture, but when we looked at the picture there was a white ring holding us up...I know it was YOU Daddy, I know it was! I will be married on that bridge and can't wait to see you in the pictures too! <3 2 days ago it was 2 years you were gone. I remembered all day, but I didn't say anything because I don't want to celebrate the day you moved to heaven. I would rather celebrate you on YOUR birthday and have some Black Walnut Ice Cream and reminiscing about all your smiles and laughs. Miss you so very Much! Love you forever Dad!! <3 Momma misses you too, please continue to guide her and feel your love!
