Dad, I'm just sitting here crying and missing you. I know that you are the best singer up there in the angel's choir. Love & Misses, Sherri

What a great person whom every single time I was in need or was feeling down he would smile and say "Lets go sing, it will make you feel better" and it always did. I know he knows just how much I appreciated his kindness every time I was down and out. May God Be with the family even after a year that are still mourning May he lift your burdens and show you a light. Love Esther Bittick-Caldwell

Another poem from Dizz's youngest daughter, Sherri.

My Latter Years

From dusk to dawn my life is sadness and tears,
What an awful way to spend my latter years.
Just when I feel like I can breathe again,
Another loved one begins their path to the end.
I never thought that I would wish to feel numb,
Instead of heartbreak and pain in which to succumb.
I used to be drawn to blessings, love and light,
Now I struggle alone just to get through each night.

{written by Sheryl Charland - November 13, 2013}

Dad,
There is no doubt that Heaven is a better place since you arrived there.
Love & Misses,
Sherri

Dizz was as good of Brother as anyone could ever wish for. He would do almost anything He could to help a stranger.

Shared Birthdays


Today is my birthday and yours is tomorrow,
Not celebrating together brings me much sorrow.

My entire life we've shared our special day,
Not much to celebrate since you've gone away.

Should I give up on birthdays or continue to celebrate,
With me here on Earth and you at Heaven's gate.

So no more shared birthdays at least for today,
We'll celebrate again until then we'll be okay.


· For my Dad with love and misses

My sweet precious Daddy, You meant so much to many. You weren't supposed to go without me. Our birthdays are almost here (May 7th & 8th), Love and Misses, Sherri

On my first night 1961 on second shift in the Chemical Lab at Bell Helicopter the lab phone rang and a soft voice (Dizz's) was introducing himself. We immediately started becoming good friends. Bowling, solving world problems etc. Thru his transfer to Plant 5 we lost track of each other, but to this day I've never forgotten that " gentle man"! God Speed DIZZ - Ted Black

Another poem I wrote earlier this morning:

A Very Dark Place

Can't you see what's written all over my face,
I feel sad and alone; I'm in a very dark place.

Am I really that good at the feelings I hide,
Why can't you see that I'm screaming inside?

Are you truly clueless; completely unaware,
Of the dark place I'm in that's full of despair?

Sometimes I feel like my broken heart will bleed,
I wish that I could tell you what it is that I need.

This is my way of trying to make you aware,
What I need most of all is to feel like you care.

Even though Dad's cremains have been here for a while I couldn't even look at the bag they came in. Early this morning I found the courage to look. The poem above was written shortly there after.

I hate being an orphan at my age. Dad, I wish you were here to sing me a song. Love & Misses, Sherri - child 4

Here is a poem I wrote for my Dad:

Alone, Without You

You passed away a week ago today,
Why were you the one to go away?
The person I am was molded by you,
To go on without you, I haven't a clue.
I feel totally numb or perhaps in a dream,
I miss you so much that I could scream.
Having you for my dad shows that I was blessed,
I'll see you once again when I am laid to rest.
I will try now each day to get through,
Living a sad life all alone without you.

I was sorry to hear that Dizz had passed. I played basketball with him at BHS in 1944-45. My heart goes out to his family.
