Our Grampie kept a garden.
A garden of the heart;
He planted all the good things,
That gave our lives their start.
He turned us to the sunshine,
And encouraged us to dream:
Fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.
And then the winds and rain came,
He protected us enough;
But not too much because he knew
We would stand up strong and tough.
His constant good example,
Always taught us right from wrong;
Markers for our pathway that will last
a lifetime long.
We are our Grampies garden,
We are his legacy.
Thank you Grampie, we love you.
My world is just not the same without you in it..I miss you you so much! My heart just aches.
Remembering you is easy, I do it every day... Missing you is the heartache that never goes away...
Death changes everything
Time changes nothing
I still miss the sound of your voice, the wisdom in your advice, the stories of your life and just being in your presence.
I still miss you, just as much today as I did the day you died.
I just MISS you!
I'm sending a dove to Heaven
With a parcel on its wings
Be careful when you open it
Its full of beautiful things
Inside are a million kisses
Wrapped up in a million hugs
To say how much we miss you
And to send you all our love
We hold you close within our heatts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again!
Miss you my friend.......
He never looked for praises
He was never one to boast he just went on quietly working
For the ones he loved the most.
His dreams were seldom spoken
His wants were very few
And most of the time his worries
Went unspoken too.
He was there... a firm foundation
Through all our storms of life
A sturdy hand to hold on to
In times of stress and strife.
A true friend we could turn to
When times were good or bad
One of our greatest blessings
The man that we called Dad.
One year ago today you left this earth but you will never leave my heart! I miss you and will love you always
Times like this is when we miss you the most. Your silliness and Christmas spirit were always the best. We know you are with us and that's what helps us still smile. We miss you so much! Forever in our hearts. <3
It still seems so unfair. The dreams I dream of you are amazing and we are all together and smiling. I know you are telling us you are ok. We all still miss you so much. That will never change!
You are forever in our hearts!
When you lose someone you love, you gain an angel you know.
7 months have passed and it's been so fast. We miss you everyday so much. We think of you every moment, everyday, every event, it's just not the same but every time we think your gone you aren't. You are in our hearts forever, the kids remind me all the time. We love and miss you to the moon and back and someday we will all be tohether again! (Just like old times...) <3
Someone said How do you get over the loss of a loved one? You get over the loss of a wallet or ring but you never get "over" losing someone you love because they are always with you...you just get through it. I miss you and my sister together
The feeling that something is missing is constantly there. I always imagine what we would be doing or talking about if you were still here. We miss you so so much!
We miss you Daddy! Nothing will ever be the same but we will carry on strong because of you!
33 years of love lives on forever. Death can never separate the special bond of love and happiness between two people as special as you both! You will meet again.
I miss us ! Happy Anniversary Babe ! Love you always !
We miss you everyday! Your spirit lives on and always will. It's not always easy but you taught us to be such a strong family! Love you Daddy!
I found this saying on-line and wanted to share it: THE BROKEN CHAIN
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
Mark, I didn't get to say all the things I wanted to when I last saw you. Your were a great brother in law always there for me and my family. We raised our kids together and we did good! You are greatly missed in this house. "Uncle Mark" always brings a smile, a laugh and a story of the latest antic that you've done! You were a good person who knew how to live life. You made everyone around you feel like your friend! Thank you for being you and giving us your love. May you rest in peace knowing you did good in this life!
This is the first of the firsts.....Happy Birthday. Miss you lots.
Dear Karen, Laura, Terri, and Jessica....I am so sorry for your loss. My heart truly aches for you. Please take comfort in the knowledge that Mark is at peace and out of pain. I wish there was more that I could say or do...

Mark was a great husand to my sister, father to his children, grandfather to his grandbabies, brother, uncle, friend to so many. He was appropriately named as he left so many with a "mark" on their lives. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. Rest now, in peace knowing that your family and friends loved you so much.
