Not sure what to say?

Dad, I miss you and wish you were still here. I know you will always be with me day and night. I think of all the fun times we had and I am happy to have a father like you. Love you!

You left us all with so many great memories. But that is good! It was amazing to watch you and Dani in that were so patient with her. She so loved building things with you. I know how much you loved disappearing in there and creating the next project. The garage will live on...because it is you. Sure wish you could help us find things in there now though! I know..."oh well". Linda, Devyn, Dani and I loved coming out there to visit. You and Claire have...

Pepere I cant tell you how much I miss coming home everyday and giving you a hug and a smack (kiss) on the cheek!! I miss you a ton as does everyone else. Memere says good morning to your picture everyday, and tells mom and me how much she misses her pain in the butt! Everyday I come home I still look for you to be tinkering around with something in the garage. Things just aren't the same as they used to be. You would be happy now knowing that house is quiet, and your space is all but yours...

Dear Pepere,
I miss and love you so much. It's hard to believe that you have left us so soon. Every day I look back at the great memories we have shared. You always put a smile on everyone's face. I have always enjoyed every minute we had. I love and miss you.

I miss you so much. I know how blessed I am that you are my dad. My children were lucky that they were able to know how wonderful of a father, pepere & husband you were. You left us all with so many wonderful memories that my family and I will cherish forever. Your garage is quiet dad... It's just not the same without you. I will miss hanging out in there with you and talking about your projects and watching you and your grand children build new projects. I miss your...

Even though I was only your son-in-law you never made me feel as such. You always thought of me and treated me as your son. You were definitely the father I never had. I will miss our times together building cars and our talks. Always loved and never forgotten. Your son, David.

I miss you so much!! You were and always will be the best father a daughter, wife or grandchild could ever ask for. You're the most loving, caring, thoughtful, honest man ever and I'm proud to be your daughter and your private nurse. You were always there not just for me but for all of us at any given time. I miss coming home and you waiting up for me to make sure I made it home safe. I miss our late nights watching westerns, MASH, and Star Trek, our time playing golf, working in...

Dear Pepa,
i love you so much and miss you a lot. you are the best Pepa in the world. i miss your funny jokes and interesting stories.(: what i miss most of all is building with you. you have lots of intelligence and you are funny and have a great imagination. You are loving and when you have your mind set to something you will do it. just like when you had all kinds of plans and models of what to build. You are who you are and that is why you are so special. You will always be in my...
