Not sure what to say?

I worked as Don's assistant during 1980-1981 at the Alachua county corrections department in Gainesville, fl.

Bright, funny guy. Sincere man, I new his wife sue very well.
We would occasionally have dinner at each others homes in Gainesville.
Don cooked a terriffic steak.

Happy birthday daddy!! You would have been 69 today!! I miss you an mama more each day. So many times I have picked up the phone and started to dual tour number. I know you and mama are together in Heaven, enjoying eternity together. Happy Birthday!!

Where do I start? The last year has been a year to remember and a year to forget. One year ago today my family's lives changed forever. We said good bye to one of the strongest most compassionate person we all knew. My daddy. I remember thinking when I was younger how much I never wanted to say goodbye to either one of my parents, I couldn't imagine life without either one. Now, within one year we are having to pick up the pieces and try to live life after having to say goodbye to both...

Words can't express how I feel about Dr. Cabana. I first met him at Parchman and then again at USM. He guided me through my academic journey and then gave myself and my wife a job after I graduated.

While, at Harrison County, I expressed to him that I was going to get my Masters and he told me to do it.

I called him sometime in 2011,and told him that I had finished and to thank him. However, he was busy and told his assistant that I could use his name anytime and to...

Father's Day. I never thought this could get any harder. I miss my dad so very much. Everyday I keep looking for him to come walk in the door. I keep waiting. I know my dad is in Heaven waiting on my mom, who will soon be joined with him again. I have no words to describe the sorrow I still feel everyday, especially now on Fathers Day. We are now having to say goodbye to my mama who has lost her battle with leukemia. The only comfort we have is that she will not be by herself. My dad...

It's been eight months since I have gotten to see or talk to my dad. Everyone says you learn how to deal with losing someone, but I am not so sure. I miss my dad terribly everyday. In one week I have one of my hardest birthdays ever. Not because of what age I will be, but because it was my dad and my mom who made those days special. I will miss my birthday dinner made special by dad. I love you daddy more than words could ever describe.

Donnie and I grew up together. I am his cousin and have often thought about him but didn't know where he was. Will miss him even though we had not seen each other in years often thought about him. My prayers are with u and we know what u are going thru as I lost my husband on the 21st of march 2014 Kids and I miss him terrible too God Bless u all.

Easter without my dad is just not Easter. My father had the ability to make all of the holidays great ones. This year my mom is stuck in the hospital, once again, and we will only have memories of my father. We will tell great stories, laugh, and probably cry together. None of us will say it, but we will all know it will never be the same without my dad. I miss you daddy so very much!! I love you more than words could ever say. I love you, Happy Easter!!
