Happy Birthday to me! Another one goes by Jeff. Now 69. Hard to believe. And you would be 42. It was so long ago and yet so fresh in my mind. It will always be that way and always hurts most on my birthday, your birthday and holidays. I miss you so much. I will wish a happy thought for you tonight when I blow out my candles. maybe even wish you will be there when my time comes. It will be wonderful eternity if it comes true!

Love.......

Happy Birthday Grandma! Well Jeff, grandma, against all odds, made it to yet another birthday! 87 years old!! Who'd ever thought she'd make it this long? Grandma sure didn't! I wish you were there. She had a great birthday with family all around. Everyone talked about their great grandchildren and kids. I just kept silent. It's not fair that you weren't there for Grandma's birthday. You would have been the most special grandson there for sure! I miss you Jeff. Grandma misses you a whole bunch as well. We ALL miss you. Stay happy and please come for us when it is our time like you came for Jenny. Don't forget us!!

Love,
Dad

Happy Fourth of July Jeff! Probably won't do much today to celebrate. Nothing really to celebrate. I remember that night on Minnewawa when we all went up on the roof and watched 3 different fireworks displays as we had a steak dinner. Linda was so scared to go up and down the ladder but you got her up there! All I have is memories now son. I hope wherever you are that you will also retain these memories of a life so full of love and happiness. Don't remember the sorrow like I have. Happy 4th of July! Tomorrow is Grandma's 87th birthday. She is still here with us. Wish her a happy birthday in a dream. She will smile in her sleep!

Love,
Dad

Happy 28th Anniversary to us!!

Today is Linda's and my 28th anniversary Jeff. If it hadn't been for you, we would never have gotten together! You were such a matchmaker. I gained a wife and step son and you gained a mom and a brother! Linda, Danny and I miss you terribly. I wish you were here to celebrate it with us. Every holiday and anniversary is sad without you. We will all meet again someday and I hope you are there to greet us with open arms and that big bear hug you were famous for!

Love,

Dad, Linda and Danny

Happy Father's Day to me! Another one passes without you to celebrate with me Jeff. If you were never in my life, I'd never have known the joy of being a father -but also the pain of losing my beloved son. It never gets easier! Linda and Danny left to get my traditional Father's Day donuts and chocolate milk. I think you and I started that back when you were young. Grandma is approaching her 87th birthday. Can you believe that? I hope you find her when she departs. I still want to go fishing with you and Grandma when I go. We'll all have a grand time!

I love you son. Thanks to you, I can celebrate this day as the proudest father in the universe!

Happy Easter Jeff! I sure do miss all the fun we had looking for eggs, presents AND rabbits on Easter morning. Then that great Ham dinner I would always make. We are using the plates you bought us for holidays. There are still 4. One each for me, Linda, Danny and YOU! Oh I miss you so much Jeff. I hope now, more than ever that there really is an afterlife and you and I can go off into the sunset -or space- and live happily ever after!

I love you son and Happy Easter!

Happy New Year Jeff! We aren't doing much tonight because Linda has to work tomorrow. We will still have a beer in you honor and maybe bang a few pots. Sixteen New Years without you is unbearable and who knows how many more I will have to endure? But it's a New Year tomorrow and hopefully a better one for us. Grandma has also made it through another year! I love you son!

Merry Christmas Jeff! Ho Ho Ho......It's that day again! I want you here. I want to wish you Merry Christmas in person! I miss you beyond belief. it will never get better. People who say that don't know. They've never experienced this kind of loss. We were so close. Best friends. You were my rock! Now I'm just wading in the water without a solid foundation. I am lost! I hope you find me when it is time son. I don't know where I would go if you are not there to guide me! I love you son and Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas Eve Jeff! I wish you were here for Christmas once again. Fifteen years have gone by without you and Christmas is just not the same ever! Tonight we had pizza for dinner if you can believe that! I made a baked ham for Danny since he doesn't like Prime rib which linda and I are having tomorrow. You would have asked for both! The ham was so good we had it last night. Linda and I were supposed to be in Fresno today with Grandma but she got the stomach flu really bad last night so we had to cancel. She was really sick Jeff and I am worried about her. I hope she will recover quickly and we will see her in 2 weeks. Push some power Grandma's way to help her get well Jeff!

I love you so much and miss you more!

Dad
