Missing you today

I Can Feel It
by Patty Betlach Russell

His voice is in the gentle breeze
that whispers a message...
Do you hear it?

He is watching from heaven as
the clouds paint pictures on an
endless canvas...
Do you see it?

His love shines through in the
sparkle of his grandchildren's eyes...
Do you feel it?

His spirit will be in the music,
the song and the words...
I can hear it.

He's around all of...

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in His arms, I have you in my heart. I miss you.

Merry Christmas Dad! There were a couple of Rudy tales to be had last evening! They never get old and are oh so much fun to hear! We'll be thinking of you while we gather the next couple of days. Love you! Stop by and see me sometime! ;-)

Merry Christmas to you in heaven for what is already the 6th year. How fortunate for you that you get to spend it with Jesus and all of them that we also love and miss. How unfortunate for us that we are spending it here without you. There is always something there to remind me of you and the memories of all the fun and laughter that we had. Here is a Christmas hug, please pass it on to everyone you get to spend the day with! Know that you are always missed. I love you dearly, XOXOX Patty

Dad... I was driving home from work today and singing along with the radio and then BAM!! Just started to cry!! I miss you so much!! I wish you could be here to watch Zach grow up and to see Alyssa have a baby boy and make me a Grandma at the ripe old age of 37.. :-) Keep watching over us, it is a comfort to know you do!!

Dear Uncle Rudy, We all miss you so much. You are one of those lights that are hard to miss big guy. I still have that little history book you bought me when I went to college with you one day. I remember feeling so important that you took me to class with you. Well, I went on and graduated college after that experience, your niece Linzi did, and your nephew Antonio just walked the line Friday. Amazing, what little things a person does makes such a difference in so many lives after them, and...
