In loving memory of our daddy, who passed away on January 12, 1999
Daddy, it's been 14 years and we still tear up when we talk about you. We know it wasn't your choice to leave us, but it was your time to let go. I hope you're proud of me and the person I've become because I am this person because of you. Your loss has been hard on our family, but I know that things have a way of working themselves out with you watching over us.
Carly is upset that she was too young to know you, but boy she resembles you in so many ways! Some people say that Kaitlin and I resemble you in our smiles and our mannerisms. I sure hope so because it makes me feel special, like I'm carrying a part of you with me no matter where I go. Mom always says, "There was no one like him". No one is like you and I miss being able to ride on your back and walk around the room like we were getting married. People have told us what a wonderful guy you were. I tell them you were my dad, and there was no one like you.
I used to believe the circumstances of your death was bad luck. I've learned it was the end of your journey and a crossroads for the rest of our journeys where we took a different road to move on. If you could see the way your loss has affected every person you knew and every heart you touched, especially me, daddy. Someday I know we'll be together again and we can play just like the old times.
Love Rachel (Kaitlin & Carly, too)
In loving memory of my husband, who passed away on January 12, 1999 My Darling Doug, you were my dream come true. I miss your smile, your laugh and your wit, but I especially miss your faith, your strength and your tenderness....for a love all too brief, with memories that warm and hurt at the same time, ever precious and never forgotten.
With all the love in my heart,
In loving memory of a son,
brother and uncle.
It's hard to believe that
14 years have passed.
When we think of you it's difficult
to keep the tears from our eyes.
Though we can't see you
we can still feel your strength.
Though you can't hug us
we can still feel your gentleness.
Forever remembered, Dad, Marcia, Claude & Donna, Cal, Kurt, Chris, Riley, Kayla, Heather, Carter & Taryn.
