It was one year ago today that I lost my father, the most loving, caring man that ever lived. His life touched so many people and he is dearly missed. I found this letter and I believe he would be saying all these things to us if he could:
To My Dearest Family:
Somethings I'd like to say
but first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above
where there's no more tears
or sadness there

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

I have been friends with Debbie, for nearly nine years, and met Mr. Belt through our friendship. I know he loved his family very dearly, and also loved to serve THE LORD, in his daily life. He was a kind and caring man, and will be missed by many. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the entire family.

I miss you so much Dad, You were such a wonderful father, I will always remember the chocolate ice cream we had each night, you made sure of it. Time has passed, I go to your grave site to have talks with you, but i know you are with God in Heaven, and i know i will see you there someday. I miss you so much. I love you. Dar

When I met Jim , he was allready ill
I did not have a chance to know him
when he was'nt sick. They said his
mind was sick and did not work right.
That may be so, but I tell you one
thing, there was'nt any thing wrong
with his heart. When Jim;s mind
was'nt up to par, his heart took
over, what I mean is, His heart
took over his action's. Now they came from his heart. I never met a man more Gentle,Easy going,Kind, or more giving.
Even when his...

jim was a very close freind of mine. we go back many years. He was a very good man,and a careing person. May god bless him and all of his family. Jim will always be in my heart.

Deb and Dad, summer of 2007

When the Good Lord above took our wonderful father up to Heaven the gates were opened wide with the loving arms of his own parents and his 9 brothers and sisters all there to welcome him home. Heaven is even more beautiful now with Dad there, he was a one of a kind Dad and we were all so very, very blessed to have him for all those years. We love you Dad, so very much and you will never leave our hearts. Someday we will all be together again.
