Thought that with the passing of time that things might be a little easier dealing with them. Well they are not to say the least. I hope that you know just how much you are missed and that if giving up everything would bring you back it would be done. We know you didn't leave on purpose but damn it it hurts so much to not have you here with us. Trying to figure out day by day just how we are suppose to live life without you around down here. You may not know it but you were a part of our lives so much more that you ever thought. Nothing is ever going to be able to take you from our hearts that is for sure. Please know that we love and miss you each and every day and that a memory of you is brought to mind each and every day. You are so loved and will never be forgotten.

Well the fair was here this weekend. I was there friday and all I could think of was the day we went so many years ago. That was what I call my first family date since that was the day you got to meet Connie for the first time. The two of you took to each other like you had been together from the start. The day was a day to remember. You were awesome with ALL the kids and when the day ended and you gave me that huge Gumby just made the day the best. The memories from that day will be with me forever along with ALL the memories of our lives since the day we met. Love and miss you very much. I think about you each and every day.

Dad, been thinking about you a lot lately. Been running into some obstacles lately just wish I had you hear to talk to with your crazy old advice. I learned so much from you growing up. So much that sticks with me to this day. I was just talking to someone the other day how you traumatized my first camping/fishing trip. I caught a frog and you used it for bate, I was so mad at you. If that could be the extent of stress in my life now days. I love you so much and miss you so much and it's so hard without you. My kiddos talk about you often and Brayden really misses you. Hope you got your balloons the other day! Love you bunches!!!

The day our daughter asked me if you could call her daddy will always be in my mind. She aske me and I told her that she would have to ask you when you got home from work. She wasn't home when you got home. When she realized that you were home she came running home ran up the stairs blew in the door and jumped in your lap. She looked at you and said "Walt can I call you daddy?" You looked at her and said "Yes if you want to call me daddy you can sweetie." When you said that he face lit up she looked at you and said "OK" jumped down looked at me and said "He said I could call him daddy so now I have a daddy." The look on her face and the smile that you had on your face that day I will always remember. You were so happy and proud when I told you that I had nothing to do with that and that it was all her doing. We had some trouble with some for a while and well we made it through all of that even after it was made legal. That little girl who is now a grown woman could not have gotten any luckier if she tried on getting a better daddy. She got the gem of all gems. Our son hit the jackpot also in this grand scheme of life when it comes to getting the best daddy that he could get. I love and miss you so very much each and every day.

Just after meeting you that saturday we went for a drive and you took me up through the old road to get to Sisters. I thought I was going to get sick because of all the winding road we were on. I never told you this until years later but I was thinking the whole time that her I was going with someone that I didn't know at all and taking my 3 year old daughter. All kinds of things crossed my mind that could happen to us but never did. It was an amazing day that we spent that day and I will always remember it. This is just one of the amazing memories that we made together over the 25 years together. Love and miss you so very much.

I remember the night that I meet you. How we danced the night away and how on cloud 9 you made me feel. Some how some way you invited yourself the next day of taking the kids to the fair. I do have to admit that I am so glad that you did. We had an amazing day that day and boy was I shocked when you bought that giant size Gumby for me. Boy did I cherish that thing for many years. That is a day that I will never forget. I will never forget you either my BFF ROCK.....I love you more than you know.

Walter today marks 5 months that you left to go home to Jesus. These past 5 months have been a tough one. There have been many times that I have picked up the phone to call you cause I had something to tell you. I then realize that I don't know the number to heaven. There have been things that have happened that I have no idea how they happened but I think you had a hand in it. If that was you thank you so very much for each and every one of them.

There have been so many memories that have come back to me over these last 5 months. Some have brought tears and some have brought a smile and some have even brought a giggle. There isn't a day that goes by that there isn't one that does not come up. I guess over all those years that there is bound to be many of them.

On this day we lost you 5 months ago. Yesterday I went to the coast and released a special message balloon for you. I am sure that someone made sure that you got it. I am going to do the same thing today with another message to you. I will be doing this each and every month that you are gone from this earth. I want you to know that you are missed and loved so very much. I am also going to start posting each and every day a memory that I have of you no matter how small or little it may be. I want these all down so that the world can see just how much of a special man you were while you were down here. Oh so much more than any of them really know but by the time I am done they will.

Remember that there are a few of us down here that think of you each and every day and miss and love you more than you will ever know.

There is not a day or night or min that I do not think of you. You are someone that a person could never forget. I am blessed that you were and still are a part of my life. You touched so many lives that is for sure. You continue to touch my life each and every day and will till the end of time. I love and miss you more than words can say.
