Hi Dad, my thoughts have been with you everyday but not just because its your birthday! I am a day late and a dollar short, but you know your DebbieDean as you always called me!Like Dan said Dave is doing a wonderful job around the house you know how he is so picky on what he does. I thought that was wonderful that Dari had picked all the flowers from her garden and met with Diana and put them in the river for you. I think of you and Buddy everyday! I miss my son and my father so much! You and Buddy are in my prayers and thoughts everyday! You would be so proud of Billy he is a wonderful hard working and loving dad to his children ! Love you, Your daughter :-)
Hi daddy, it was amazing to be out on the river with you today wow you would be proud that Diana and I released 88 flowers for you. I miss you so much I miss the sound of your voice, I miss you and mommy together
Happy birthday my sweet dad. Dari and I put 88 flowers on the river today in memory of you and your birthday. It was so nice for your oldest and youngest daughter come together and memorialize you. I love you so much and miss you so much dad. Your daughter diana
Happy Birthday Dad. Had a great time on the river the other day with Robin, Diana and Jeff. Caught a beautiful fish that morning. I felt your guidance the whole way has I was bringing big louie in. Like Diane said it looked like a Chinese fire drill. That's the things I remember about you Dad, is no matter what turmoil was going on you had the calmness to make everything better. Jennifer said it best the other day when she told me she is who she is because of me which is a direct reflection of what I learned from you Dad. Dad I want to also say that you can be very proud of David and how well he his taking care of the house. I know he feels the same way we all do. I miss and love you Dad.

Hey dad. I just couldn't let this site go. I love and miss you every day. I am hoping that gives all of those who love you so much a place to write what they feel from their heart to you. I will keep this going as long as I feel necessary. I sometimes think I am doing ok and moving forward but then maybe I am not. I really drew a lot of strength from your wisdom. I love you dad. There are so many things that I wish I could of had one more day or one more hour to say to you. I love you dad your daughter Diana
I love you and miss you so very much. you can't imagine the love your family has for you and we all miss you so very much. Your wife
Hey Dad, been going through all the comments and reading each post. I realized that I have not posted anything and it is not without sadness because you are in my thoughts each day. I remind myself that even though I miss you I am so fortunate that you and I shared so much time together. I speak with Mom daily and I know its still so hard on her not having you next to her. I get so filled with pride when she tells me how much I resemble you. I was running the tractor and saw her watching me because I knew that she felt that it was you. The greatest compliment is knowing this. Dad thank you for being such a good mentor. I love and miss you. Your son Dan
Dad I know I said last entry but I know how much you loved your standard poodles beauty is ready to give birth to 10 to 12 pups the X-rays counted ten but my vet said there might be some hiding they are going to be the most beautiful pups in the world wish you could hold one I love you and miss you so much life has been a downward spiral since you have been gone I miss your laugh your smile your teasing me you always said I love to tease you because I never got angry you always said I had a great sense of humor miss you daddy your baby girl
Just thinking about you dad like I always do. I love and miss you dad even though I am going to let this legacy site go now doesn't mean I will ever let loving thoughts and memories go. You will always be in my heart. I love and miss you so much. Love Diana
Dad, I know this guest book registration is going to run out, so this will be my last entry, I wish you were here for advice during this trying time-I know you are watching over me and my loving husband, we both love you very much. I know you are watching and are so very proud of the way all of your children have embraced and surrounded each and everyone and made sure no one was ever alone, including the mother of your children, I know each and everyone of us miss you and think of you daily, we all wish you were with us today. Nothing has been the same. You were the Chief and you made sure we did the right thing, love you!
Hi,Daddy I heard the snow is beautiful over in Lapine, you always took care of the birds with your homemade beautiful bird feeders and squirrel feeders, I got your love of animals from you. You were always so bored this time of year, you would tell me not much to do, just waiting for spring and then you would work so hard, harder than any person I have ever known, proud to be your daughter, Darilynn
Hi Daddy, it's your baby girl, miss you each and every day, John and I have a special ceremony we are going to have in your honor on the Siuslaw River this August celebrating a very special time I and John spent with you, you were my hero!! You and only you taught me so much about values and beliefs. I love you and happy fishing memories with you, you gave me that beautiful salmon fishing pole with my name on it, I think it was the first one you ever had made, very special!!! You always got my pole ready and baited my hook, you were so proud of me when I got my first fish with you with my leg in a cast and you helped me get it landed, wow, what a memory, something I will never forget my dad and me, love you daddy!!!!

Happy Father's Day, Daddy. this is the first Father's Day without you, I have so many happy memories of this day, you always loved it when we would get together for your day. As always we would call mom what does daddy need and mom would answer nothing we would say we want to get him something and mom would come up with an idea, you always were happy get whatever, or so you acted like it, I miss your smile and your laugh, I love you and miss you,Darilynn
Bud, First my friend and pal. Who would have thought that someday my Father in Law. You treated me with respect and fairness. We had a lot of fun on the jobsite always joking and telling stories at VR Village. I loved to hear about your road and rock stories with
Delta and Wildish companies. I have a bunch more to tell you about UR. com., especially my new truck which will be here in July. Ill save them for when I see you, but for now ill put them here.
Love You Pop, JP

Dobie, Debi and the rest of the family. I was so sorry to hear
of Bud's passing and my heart goes out to you. I think of you,
Dodie, when I drive through LaPine on my way to Sunriver
where we have a place. It would be nice to see you. I have
fond memories of the old days in cosmetics. My email
Again, my condolences.
I shall always cherish my memories of times spent with Bud.
So sorry to see that Bud has passed away.
John and I want to express our sympathy to Dodie and the family. We have wonderful memories of camping, motorcycle riding, and BBQs with the family. You all will be in our thoughts and prayers.
