Hi daddy. Hard to believe that you have been gone for 6 months already. At times it feels as if I had spoke with you yesterday (they're the easier days), and other days it feels like I've been missing you forever. You were all I had here daddy, the only true family I had. I'm alone now without you. I mean, there's mike, I love him dearly. But he's got a life of his own with Nat, ya know. You you were mine and I yours. I wish I had realized that sooner, like when u were still here. How wonderful that would've been. Here's those regrets again creeping in. I'm sorry daddy. I'd better go. Depression comes too easily anymore...and that's not healthy or productive at all. You're in my thoughts constantly daddy and will always be in my heart. I miss you and I love you so. I will attempt to write on here again, hopefully the next time I will be able to make it through the first two sentences before i lose it at least. Please visit me in my dreams. I haven't been able to dream of you or maybe I I just don't remember dreaming of you and I want to so bad. I read I should ask you to wake me up when you are leaving after visiting me in my dreams so that way there's a better chance of remembering it. So I have been every night, did you hear me ask you to? Can you, will you, please daddy. I miss you, I just want to see you. I want to be your TOOTSE again. I loved being her. Goodnight daddy. See what u can do, okay? Sweet dreams and angels daddy.
With all my love, TOOTSE
Hi daddy. It's Thanksgiving and I really wish you were here. I love you always.
Hi daddy. I miss you, I miss doc too. Will this ever get easier? Some days it gets too hard. I need my daddy, I always did. How will I get used to life without you? I don't know, but I know I will. Everything's gonna be fine. Cause I know you didn't raise no sissies. Huh, daddy? I love you so much.
Hi daddy. I think of you all the time...just thought you should know that. I miss you.
Hi daddy. Just wanted you to know that I love and miss you very much.
Sorry for loss. God bless. What a nice guy your father was.
So sorry for your loss. Joe was a really nice guy. My husband and I saw him every Friday night after work at Stokes bar. Joe came to our house for many parties and went on some ski trips too. Pour John a drink up there Joe and have a toast to each other
Hi daddy. Well, it's done. It's over. You are where you wanted be. I hope you are pleased with it all. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful service. I have your flag. I couldn't stop crying daddy. I couldn't even finish my eulogy for you. I meant every word of it. I'm gonna miss you so much Daddy. I hope you are at peace now. Come tomorrow I will be fine too. I love you Daddy. Sweet Dreams and Angels. XOXO

So sorry for your loss. Joe was not only a great bartender, but a great man as well. He will be missed by everyone who had the honor to know him. R.I.P Joe..
I went in Stokes in the early 70s. Joe and Moose were the bartenders. Joe was most certainly a gentleman. And he treated me as such. You meet some fine people in life and Joe was one of them. Thanks for the memories Joe.
We are sorry for your loss. Joe was a true gentleman and will be greatly missed.

I hope that where you are now is as beautiful as can be, that there is no more pain and that you are at peace. I'd like to believe that you're an angel now watching over me from Heaven. I will always be Daddys Little Girl. Daddy, Please remember that I
