Happy Birthday Papa Bear! I miss you so much. You taught me more than you could know. Thank you for sharing your love of old planes with all of us. Here's wishing we could spend just one more lazy afternoon hanging out and talking, sharing the paper, and watching you fight the barbecue.
Hug Mom for me. Love to you both.

Andy was our neighbor and he was always full of jokes and a smile. Andy and Linda were the first ones to welcome us the neighborhood, and I will always remember him calling me "kiddo". He will truly be missed. Andy - May you celebrate in heaven with Linda!

Andy was one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I've known. I met him over twenty years ago, when he and my mother began dating again (they had known each other in high school). Over the last year, after the loss of my mother, we became especially close. We would speak every day, often several times, and I looked forward to our conversations. Andy (Growly Papa Bear) introduced me to vintage war planes, and sharing that interest was one of the bright highlights of a dark time.
Andy could act gruffly, but that growly ex-military saltiness lay over a kind and generous heart of gold. He was a loyal friend and father, and never missed an opportunity to give little surprises or perform those little random acts of thoughtfulness that can make someone's day.
I will miss Andy every day. I have lost my second Dad. He was (and is) a salt-of-the-earth, kind, funny, smart, resourceful all-American Navy man who is probably already organizing and entertaining heaven - and making my mother smile again.

We cannot communicate with those who have passed to the other side, never the less their presence remains as long as they are in our hearts.

I feel a warmth around me
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize
your face when you were here,
I endure the times we spent together
and they are locked inside my heart,
For as long as I have those memories
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak no more
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayer.
