Happy St. Patrick's Day Dad - celebrated at your house, thank you for that! As every other day since June 1st, just not the same without you here. I miss you terribly. Every minute. All My Love, Barbara Ann
Well, 9 months now you've been gone. I miss you so so much, my heart just hurts. Please watch over my girls, I love you Dad <3
Feeling your presence today.
Thank you for teaching me how to live by actions. I am proud to have you as my Father. I could use some more pennies :) I love you Daddy, I think I can start to accept that I can enjoy so many memories created by such a selfless man. I have gained so much from you, I am smiling a genuine smile today it feels good. Love you to the moon and back!
Well, Super Bowl Sunday...like everything else it's just not the same without you here. It's been a long eight months, I miss you to the depths of my soul. Logan got his first tooth today! All My Love, Barbara Ann xoxoxo
2015...the very first year I will step into without you here ?? it's been a very long 7 months? Not quite sure what to do with myself so I think I'll just go to your house and sit in your chair with your great grandson. I miss you every day. Happy New Year Dad. All my love, Barbara Ann
Merry Christmas Dad :) It was a very bittersweet day. I miss you so much, your girls are all a little lost without you here. But we remain strong, like you, and cherish all the love and memories. As always, I will carry you with me. All My Love, Barbara Ann
Merry Christmas daddy
Looks like your going to be a great grandpa again. Thank you so much for making sure we have each other- that there are beautiful babies on the way to ease the pain and celebrate the beautiful legacy of your life here on this earth. Love you to the moon and back
1st Christmas in Heaven gone but not forgotten. Your presence was with us all tonight. I'm at your house missing you but trying to make Christmas like you were here for your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
It's been six long months without you here Dad. I miss you more than words can say. And I love you more. All My Love, Barbara Ann
Thanksgiving this year was very beautiful and had more meaning then others before it. As we were together and felt the longing for your presence, it reminded me how very much you have given us to be thankful for. The values you instilled, the love you have given to all of us, the laughter and joy that we carry with us everyday. I love you daddy so very much. Thank you for all that you have given to all of us. We all love and miss you. Til we meet again I have countless memories to comfort me.
Happy Thanksgiving Dad. I am so thankful for all of the wonderful memories and mostly for being a part of you. I am also thankful for God's strength and grace to help me get through because I miss you more each day. All my love, Barbara Ann
Nothing will ever be the same without you here, especially Veterans Day! I am so proud of you, how you served, how selfless you always were, how you survived it all. I miss you every moment of every day. Thank you Dad, you will always be my hero! God bless you and keep you. All my love, Barbara Ann
Happy Veteran's Day Brother. Remembering last years celebration with love and pride we have for you for your service to our country. Rest in peace with your fellow veterans, we will always honor all who gave the ultimate sacrifice for us.
I miss you immensely. All My Love, Barbara Ann
Missing you Daddy today and everyday. I have these wonderful memories that you have left me with, I got to share so many stories with Russells Mom about you, as I was doing so I realized even more so just how blessed I am to have a father such as you. I know that you see what we are all doing, as I just got the penny you left me on the side of the bed. Thank you, it so comforting to know you are here with us all. SMILE, I love you!
Wish this candle was on a cake and you were still here to celebrate your birthday with all of us.
Happy 70th Birthday, baby brother. Your legacy lives on through your beautiful daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Four long, sad months without you. I am like a fish out of water without you. You were my rock and my confidant, the one I could turn to no matter what. I feel your love everyday and miss your wonderful smile.
Another month has gone by since I've seen your face. This is terrible, Dad. I know you're watching over us and I'm very thankful for that, but I'm selfish and I want you here! Thank you for every minute of 44 wonderful years. I love you always
I can't believe you've been gone for 3 months. Love you and miss you so much it hurts. xoxoxoxo
Not having a good day today pop, wish you were here.
Love you more.
Your grand daughter Melissa just received her pendant with your ashes yesterday, very beautiful to carry a little bit of you with each of us. We carry your love always! Miss you daddy.
Today marks two months since the worst day of my life. I miss you more than words can ever express. The hole in my heart and in my life can never be filled. I love you Dad
Going to visit your final resting place, however I know you forever reside with us all always. The fish faces start their season soon, who will harass me now during the games. Krystle and I carry on the tradition of the good morning. Barb has a big part in sending the Logan photo everyday. These little things that you started carry on with us all. Today I will have a bologna sandwich with Alex and nilla wafers for dessert! It's the little things that matter so very much , thank you for giving us all so very much love!
Hi Little Brother, back home in New York, missing our evening chats although I haven't watched Jeopardy since you passed. Just not the same without being able to call you after the show. I know you are in a better place but you can rest easy knowing that you raised two of the finest girls in the world. Look after them like you did while you we're here and give us all strength to overcome the grief of losing you. Until we meet again, I love and miss you. Your adoring sister, Della
Thank you! For always making me part of your family, unconditionally.
To Barb, Dave and the kids, I just want to let you all know that you are in my continued prayers, and I am always here for all of you. Love you all very much. Things won't be ok for a long long time, if ever, but you can rest knowing he is watching over you all, and would only want you to be happy and try to go on with your lives as best you can for him. I didn't have the pleasure of knowing him, but I know his daughter and grandkids and I think they are pretty special. So in a way I guess I knew a little of him.
Dad, it's been a month now since I've talked with you, held your hand, gotten my good morning text, had my drive home phone call, brought you to the VA, heard you say 'yahoo', or just sat with you watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Time isn't helping one little bit, at least not yet. We are staying strong, like you were, and Dave is taking good care of 'your girls' :) English muffins and cheez-its are bogo this week at Publix - little things like that are hard! Thank you for the letters, it helps a little every morning to read your words. I have my necklace now so I literally carry you close to my heart. Just like you carried us. Your headstone is beautiful, I hope you like what we wrote. All My Love, Barbara Ann
Sunday will be five weeks and it feels likes yesterday I love u pop I miss u more and more each day that passes u will always be on my mind and in my heart my #1
bill,I still can't fathom the reality that I'll not speak with you again.
Thinking of you a lot today <3
Pop I don't know what say.. Nothing seems easier my smiles are never fully real! I miss you so much it kills me everyday... Just knowing I can never hug you see you talk to you text you drive you anywhere go shopping with you kills me. It's so unbelievably hard to go to your house knowing I'll never see you there again you have no idea! I keep trying to get past this and I can't everywhere I go reminds me of you I have so many memories with you! You were the best father/grandfather anybody could ask for!!!!!!! Only thing I want in this life is to see you again I love you so much and miss you gone but never ever forgotten. R.I.P.
Today I woke with a heavy heart, realizing that I will not be able to hug you on this Father's Day. Then my sadness turned to appreciation. That I was able to hug you, to know you, to make you proud. To be part of you, that's your legacy. You left all of us here with a lifetime of memories. Good, bad, and indifferent. Mostly you left is so much love. There will not be one day that is not Father's Day to Barbara Anne and I. Because of the father and man that you are. Thanks for all that you've taught us and given. Ps thanks for the pennies.
I love you.
May you & Vic rest in peace
Missing you more with every moment Dad. The greatest honor of my life is to be your daughter. The greatest sorrow of my life is losing you. The greatest comfort of my life is still feeling you here with me. The greatest moment of my life will be when we meet again. I love you. And
I WILL CARRY
YOU WITH ME
Dear William. (POP) What a great man you were. You raised the most unbelievable family that I get to call my own!! Your daughters and Grand Children are the best people I know!! I do wish I had talked to you more at family gatherings. I bless your soul for your service to our Country and being awarded the Purple Heart. God knows there are men or woman alive today because of your brave actions. Thank you for making Barb and Kimmy the way they are and for being a good man. God Bless you and may you RIP and hopefully find some Buddies from Viet Nam and have some good laughs.
I did not know him personally but I felt like I did because of how Kim talked about you, the light in her eyes and how much she loves her Dad. My heart is with the family and love is racing throught the universe to touch you and support at the very difficult time. Love you more
