It's been awhile Dad,but I miss you just as much today as I alway's have. I need you to put in a good word to the man upstairs for my children. You know why, I've prayed to you many of times about it. You and mom are forever in my heart, and I hope one day we are all together. Take care of us, and put in a good word. I love you Dad, Lauren.....
Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I would give anything to be able to talk to you again. It is almost Christmas and Christmas music and this time of year remind me so much of you. I love you Papa and miss you so much!
Dad,I still walk in the house and expect to see you here. If only I could tell you how much I miss you, and I have so many things I want to talk to you about.You would alway's listen to me. I miss everything we shared. I LOVE YOU DAD, and wish you were still here. Lauren
I know how your family is feeling, ours is feeling the same about our paw-paw and mee mee. I am sure that your parents and my parents wish they could ease the pain and loss for us, some days are harder than others but they never are the same, still do and always will miss them. Just knowing others understand your loss helps and we understand. Sherri & Mike Baumer
Hey papa- Just wanted to let you know I LOVE YOU and I am ALWAYS thinking about you. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. What I would do or give to have you to talk to right now. I LOVE YOU PAPA!!!! Jessie
Hey Pops- Just wanted to let you know I am thinking about you as always. I thought this would get a little easier everyday, but it is only getting harder for me. It seems like the more time goes by, the harder it gets for me. I Miss You more than words can even explain and would do anything in this world for you to be back here with me. I miss my Sunday breakfast date, and all of your wise advice you would give me, and putting your "sexy" white stockings on you everyday that you hated to wear. I could go on and on, on all the things I miss about you. I still walk into my parents house and expect you to be sitting at the table ready to greet me, but then reality hits me. You really are gone. I know you are watching over me though, and I know one day I will get to see you again; and when I do, I will give you a big bear hug and kiss those sweet cheekls of yours. I LOVE YOU PAPA!!!! Jessie
Poppi, TOday is Moms birthday. Greg and I went out and made a visit to the cemetery and put flowers and a windmill there. I alway's think of mom when I see a windmill blowing, so I brought one for you and her of your own. I started filling my bird feeders up today and the tears just started rolling. I think of you ever day when I am watching the birds on the deck, I would alway's ask you when they would feed or build their nest what kind of birds they were.Every little thing reminds me of you. You may have been 83 in yrs,but your heart and mind never aged. You told me a few months before you left us how much it meant to you when me and the girls would call down to you every night,(sometimes multiple times) and tell you how much we loved you. You made sure and let me know how much it meant to you and how much you felt loved in our family. Now, every day, I look up at the sky and tell you and Mom how much I love you, and in my heart, I know you hear me!!!! Lauren
Hey Papa, Jen gets married tomorrow. Another wedding you'll get to watch over. I'll be thinkning about you when all of the old time songs are played. I'll request some Louis Armstrong for you. I love you so much, Hope all is well up there with Nanny, tell her I said hello. I love you.
I don't know what came over me but something drew me to your guest book tonight...Maybe because so much has changed since you went home to Jesus. Maybe because your first great grandson Dakota is graduating High school in 3 weeks. You would be so proud! He has turned out to be such a fine young man! See he did pick up some of your traits :) Or maybe it's because I have felt your presence upon us lately. I know you are watching over Mariah and giving Roy and I strength to get her through what seem's to be over whelming health issues,But in reality we know it'll be better for her in the long run. I really don't know:( I do know that we all really really miss you and we are so very lucky to have a kind,loving, careing angel as yourself to watch over all of us. You are truly etched in our hearts forever!!! Your memory will never fade...Hug's and Kisses
Happy Birthday Poppi,I miss you soooo much! Not a day has gone by that I don't long to sit and talk with you, watch a movie,our shows on TV. UofL Basketball this year has not been the same since we don't watch it with you. I want you to know that you were the most admired man or person in my whole life.Keep being our guardian angel, and you know there are things and people that need your extra looking over. Happy Birthday,I love you and will miss you always. Lauren
I woke up this morning and expected to see you at the table as you always were, and asking me questions about what we still needed to get for tonite. You brought so much joy,laughter and love with your presence. I think about you and Mom every day,and hope that you both are watching over us. I love you Dad, and Merry Christmas!!!!!!
Hey pop. Just thought I'd let you know that every johnny mathis, judy Garland, or anything other artist of that time I listen to now for Christmas reminds me fo you and the way we used to listen and you would whistel it so beautifully. I miss you so much I can't explain it in words. Just wanted to say that i loved you, and please know I think about you all the time.
I love you so much
Missing you more and more each day! I thought it would get easier, but it seems each day only gets harder. The holidays sure aren't the same without you. Every christmas song reminds me of you. Actually,everything reminds me of you in some way or another. I love you so much and it is so hard living without you in my life. Always watch over me and the family!!! Your favorite :) Jessie
Dad, Thanksgiving, or any other day has not been the same since you left us. You showed us through your actions and love for each and everyone of us how to be strong, and to stay connected to each other. I felt your presence on Thanksgiving, and know that your spirit was with us all. I miss you so much Dad, you were the rock of this family. Keep us all together. You are so missed every day, but I think you would be so proud of all of us since you have left. Help keep us all safe and Healthy, and I still am looking for that place right next to you and Mom. I love you forever. Lauren
Dad, If only I could let you know how much I miss you more and more each day. The Holiday's are coming up,and nothing will ever be the same. I hold you close in my heart always. Thanksgiving, when you always said the prayer before our meal,instead of being so sad, I will think of you and Mom back together, and Thank God for all the years we had with you.Sometimes I just sit and look at your pictures and go over and over each memory, so that I don't forget any of them.I miss opening the basement door every night and telling you 3 or 4 times how much I love you before I go to bed. Many nights I still find myself walking to that door. Dad, no one will ever know how much you meant to me, and the great impact you had on my life.Writing to you seems to be my way of feeling close to you.I may write to you a thousand times. Thank you for being such a wonderful friend and father. I will miss you forever! Lauren
So sorry for your loss, and we truly understand for we too lost a man of honor, love and understanding. They don't make too many of those models anymore, we just have to strive to be somewhat like them. A part of us is gone forever but a bigger part remains in our life, their legacy and what a legacy to leave, a loving family. The Baumer Family
You will be in my heart forever, you were truly a fine example of what a man should be. TGL
Hey Papa! I could write you a book, but I am going to keep it short and sweet. Just wanted to let you know how much I Love you and how much I miss you. I would do anything in this world to have you back here with me! Life without you here is just not the same. I walk through my parents door and expect you to be sitting at the kitchen table ready to greet me and ask me about my day, and then reality hits me...you really are gone. You have touched my life and my heart in so many different ways, and you will always hold that one special place in my heart. You are always in my mind, thoughts, and prayers!!! Please save a place just for me right by your side! I Love you Papa! Oh, I havent been to Golden Corral since you have left me, but one of these days I will have the courage to go in there, and I will eat some SOS just for you!!! :) I love you Papa!!!!!!! Jessie
Hey Pop. Just wanted to say how much I miss our talks. Don't really have anyone to ask about the 1940's anymore, and ask about the love between you and nanny. Although you're not here, I carry you with me every place I go and when I'm faced with anything, I try and look at the world through your eyes. Wish I could just hear your voice again. I love you so much and will forever and always..Still waiting for you to walk through the door again, you will forever be missed. I am eternally grateful for all the moments I look back on and remember with you. Watching parenthood and Friday Night Lights is not the same without you.
All my love,
CHARACTER....A man of Great Character whose judgment,humor and friendly spirit brought out the finest in those around him. The influence of his life upon others is a flame that will burn brightly forever. He left so much good with every soul he touched on this earth...... Dad,I miss you in every way.You and I had a bond that will never be broken. Your time with me and my family was a precious gift. I am so proud to be able to say that I am your daughter.Please watch over all of us and keep our family close as you taught us. Give Mom a big hug for me too, and save us all a place right there next to both of you. Until we are together again Dad, I will miss you forever......Lauren
God took you from us so quickly, he must have had something really special planned for you in heaven. You were the greatest Dad any daughter could have ever asked for. No one has ever touched my heart the way that you have. I love and miss you so much. You will forever be in my heart and in my thoughts.
I Love You, Dad.
