Not sure what to say?

Happy birthday gramps, I know you're on some new adventure up there.

Gramps, as much as I miss you I know what you'd tell me right now... "concentrate on your priorities grandson."

I'm doing that, and still missing you.

Lots of days that I have to wing it, you know gramps... stress, whatever. Then I remember you, if you were here you'd tell me to calm down, things will get better. You always know how to get through to me... doing my best to keep you proud gramps.

GrandPa, I think of you everyday. Even though, you actually became a very close friend to me for the aprroximately 8 years that I came to know you through Bryan. I learned something new every time that I spoke with you on the phone or in person. I have so much respect for you and your wonderful family that has always welcomed me with open arms. It is very hard to believe that three years have passed since the day that God called you home. You will always be alive in our hearts.

The memory of you Dad continues to remain strong just like the flame that keeps burning on thls candle !! Although it was so terribly hard to see you leave us on 2/3/2013, I know I have gained much wisdom and strength from you. I credit Jehovah God and also you for passing on to me your philosophies on getting through everday life. No one can ever take away from me the fact that you were a GREAT man and "MY DAD" !!

Thinking of you dad - today & always

I don't visit here often gramps, it's not easy missing your best friend and grandfather. I'm trying not to fall to short of your expectations, grant it happens here and there. Though turns out you were wrong about the car, she's awesome...

Missing you like crazy gramps.

Thinking of you Uncle Dan!

Thinking about you today Dad; today is 3 months since you passed away in Tampa General Hospital. I will always LOVE YOU! Your 90th birthday would have been in 10 days from now--YOU ALMOST MADE THAT MILESTONE!!!
