Hey Dad, hope they've taught you how to use the Internet in heaven. I really miss you and you're never far away in my thoughts and always close in my heart

It took a hell of a man all those years ago to take on a family that wasn't his. Not a lot of men would do that and I'll always respect and admire you for that.

You always amazed me with how you could always find something positive about even the most crappy situation, and yes, the last dozen or so years you were with us were pretty crappy at times.

If I could see you now and ask you what's new, I know you'd say "New York, New Jersey, New England" and maybe a few others.

I hope you have all the tools and materials you need to do what you loved. Working with your hands. And I suspect you have an endless supply of books to read

Until we meet again

Your son,

Tom

Dad,
I know you are in a better place now but I miss you more than you will ever know. Thank you for all the love and happiness you gave to me when I just a little girl and as I was growing up and met the 2nd man of my dreams, he also became your son and one of your best friends "Bryan". We both miss your dearly and want you to know....until we meet again you will forever be in our hearts.

Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
"The loosers are those who Never knew him".

To one of the most wonderful men I have encountered on my walk through life.

You can shed tears that he is gone,
or you can smile because he has lived.

You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him, or you can be full of the love you shared with him and still feel so strongly.

You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because you had a yesterday with him and he walked you through it.

You can remember only that he is gone, or you can cherish his memory and let it live on through you and what you do with the rest of your life.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back, or you can do what he'd want you to do:

smile,
open your eyes,
be happy,
love,
and go on.

Continue your journey . . .

As we trudge along life's journey, we need to remember it never ends, for every end is really only a new beginning.

Dad, words can't describe how much I miss you. I am sad for me but happy that you are now at peace. Thank you for being such a caring and patient man. You have influenced me in so many positive ways For you Dad:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Grant no other sailor take
My shoes and socks before I wake.
Lord guard me in my slumber
And keep my hammock on its number.
May no clues nor lashings break
And let me down before I wake.
Keep me safely in thy sight
And grant no fire drill tonight.
And in the morning let me wake,
Breathing scents of sirloin steak.
God protect me in my dreams
And make this better than it seems.

Grant the time may swiftly fly
When myself shall rest on high.
In a snowy feather bed,
Where I long to rest my head,
Far away from all the scenes
And the smell of half-done beans.
Take me back into the land
Where they don't scrub down with sand,
Where no Demon Typhoon blows,
Where the women wash the clothes.
God thou knowest all my woes,
Feed me in my dying throes.
Take me back I'll promise then
Never to leave home again.

Lynn and Bryan, please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
