Daddy, there is so much I could say and so many memories that I remember that I could write a book. I enjoyed our times working in the yard and in the vegetable garden and everything you taught me that I still use today. You taught me how to use tools, how to work on cars, how to build things, how to fish, and how to dance. You were the smartest man I knew, able to work on anything with a motor and build something without any type of plans. I loved spending time with you, your sense of humor, and how you were always so eager to help anyone that needed it. Thank you for being the father that was there for the fishing trips, the picnics, the family projects, and the holidays. You and Mom set a great example for us while we were growing up and I appreciate all you did for me. It was hard to watch your decline due to the Parkinson's but you never lost your sense of humor. I Love you Daddy and Miss You but I know that we will see each other again in Heaven.

My beloved Dad. You were the best Dad a daughter could have. I wish I could have had the strength to say this at your memorial service but my emotions prevented me from doing so. My earliest memories were when I would follow you and your wheelbarrow around the yard as you worked, knowing I'd be given a wheelbarrow ride when it was empty.

You taught me the love of flowers. The colors of Azaleas and Camellias, the beautiful aroma of Roses and Gardenias. You taught me the best way to have fresh flowers is to buy the plant and enjoy it's rewards. Your flowers made many a teachers' morning when we were sent to school with some of your living masterpieces. The rose garden you made Mom reminded me to stop and smell the roses, and for many years I often requested to pick out a rose bush as a gift from Sal, so I'd receive a certificate from him for a rose bush. One of life's lessons I have learned is that a riding lawn mower can kill rose bushes, especially when you look back to see if you accidentally ran over one, and take down a second rose bush just as fast.

You taught me the love of the ocean and the food it can provide. Teaching me to fish from either a shore, pier, or a boat. I learned to bait my own hook and that a rag was always helpful in holding a fish to get it off the hook, and how to clean the fish. I'll always remember being woken up early in the morning by Mom asking if I wanted to go fishing and my answer was always yes', either on your boat or on Uncle Fenton's boat. I also remember your laugh when I asked you and Sal to watch my fishing rod as I left for a bathroom break while we were on the Cocoa Beach Fishing Pier during one of your visits to Florida, only for me to arrive back with each of you holding one of the two fishing rods you both were fishing with, and watch my little fishing rod with the tip just 6 about the top rail jump up once, then sail up and over the rail with you two watching! Bungees became one of the items you added for fishing pier trips to hold down the rods from going over'.

Memories of all your grilling where you were always sampling' to make sure it was good enough to eat. The fun of making the train models and helping you paint them. The Moose Lodge's barbecues, picnics, parties, and the Landstown Farmer's Market where you would love to dance. You always ran into someone you knew where ever we went, and often Mom would send us to 'Find Daddy' and we found you talking to another person. You were always willing to help someone out and had an eye for anything of value laying aside the road. There was many a time we went thru the woods looking for squirrels, or mistletoe. There were so many times we watched you put on spurs and climb a tree to tie a rope to help pull it down when you used the chainsaw to take it down. Memories of walking along the pulled up nets on the beach, trips to Rudee Inlet for crabbing, visits to Franklin where we would walk the plowed fields picking up peanuts, and the summers filled with fresh produce - tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, and fresh ears of corn. Dad you always knew how to pick the sweetest melon! Fall meant a trip to the mountains to get Apples! My love of fried oysters when you brought them home Fresh from the Chesapeake Bay' and steamed shrimp with Old Bay' seasoning!

You taught me how to maintain a car and helped me learn about car parts on older cars before computers were introduced. You helped me learn to build such things as a huge dog house' with siding, and re-do an old truck camper top into a cute custom one. Your sharing of knowledge helped me in my employment with my positions at Diamond Hill Plywood and Richard's Paint Manufacturing Company. I learned from you if something is broken, open it up and perhaps you can fix it - it's broken anyway. I have been able to fix some items, but Dad you were definitely Mr. Fix It'.

You were always great with your Grand-Twins, Daniel and Valerie and loved wearing your Grand-Twins' caps. We'll always cherish those times!

I was glad to be able to come and stay with you when Mom had her surgery and little did we know it was training for the following year when she fell and broke her leg. The month I spent with you while she recovered gave me more memories, especially as the Parkinson's Disease was gradually getting worst. The last year was hard seeing you losing your fight with Parkinson's but now I know you're doing one of your many activities you loved to do, with Lyn by you side!

I love you Dad and until I see you again!

Susan, oh my dear friend, as I sit here with tears in my eyes after reading your entry. You had wonderful times with your Dad. He was an incredible man. He lives in each of you forever. Everyone in your family is his legacy. That contagious smile of his has been passed down to each of his kids. I loved watching him on the dance floor with you and your Mom. You all made it look so easy. He tried several times to teach me, I don't think I ever got It! He was loved by many and we be missed so much. My prayers and thoughts are with all the Heffington Family.
