Happy Birthday Daddy!!
I miss you more than ever! We all do! I wish you were here to comfort and guide us. The boys miss you so much. I can't believe Sammy is going to be a freshman and Danny is going into his junior year. Its going to be a tough year. Soon we will be picking colleges! You would be in your glory watching them both play football. It is exciting and exhausting. They are growing up to be so much like you, good, caring, honest men. I am so proud of them and you would be...

Hi Daddy! Its Pammy. You left us 2 years ago today and I miss you more than ever! Sometimes I don't know how we are managing without you. It is very hard. I miss your smile, your wisdom, your chuckle, your encouragement, your silence. I miss everything about you. Paulie came in today and mom is making a turkey dinner for all of us to celebrate you.
The boys miss you, especially your math skills! Danny is trying to fill your shoes and he is doing a great job, he strives to be like you....

Hi Daddy, its Pammy,
I can't believe it has been a year since I last saw your smiling face. I miss you just as much today as I did a year ago. The boys miss you too! I am trying so hard to fill your shoes but it is so hard without you, especially your special dinners. I think I finally perfected the chicken casserole, you would love it, and I made your potato salad, and your steak. I am making the steak tonight for everyone and we are getting together to celebrate you!
I will never...

Happy Birthday Daddy! It's Debbie darling. I miss you so very much today! We all do... I don't want to be here writing this! I want to be at the Jersey Shore with you and Mom and our family.. I want to watch you and Mom holding hands while walking the beach, or you relaxing reading a book or smiling and planning the days events including our many fun meals. Dad, Grace and Jack miss you so, so, so much. One more day at the beach.. Happy Birthday! To the best Father ever! Always looking Up!

Paul & Family,

I just heard and am so very sorry for your loss. I have many wonderful memories of time spent with the Kobel clan during our grade school years. Much love to all of you. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.


Please accept our deepest condolences. Words are inadequate at a time like this; take comfort in knowing the love you and your father shared for each other is eternal. He will continue to watch over you throughtout your life with love and pride. You are in our prayers.
