Not sure what to say?

Happy Birthday Dad!! Miss you so much!!

Tim, even though I've never met your dad, the family pictures say a thousand words. That kind of loving family tradition is hard to come by now a days. He is an angel in Heaven who is always in your family's heart. May your family be forever blessed.

Sorry I never met your Dad...but he has that look about him. The look of siring a robust family....and loving every minute of the time he has shared with them.
How fortunate you are to have had him.

Pat/Tim It was an honor to meet and spend some time with your Dad, what a great person he was to be with. I can still see the glint in his eye and the smile on his face and it really was a pleasure to be in his company. My thoughts and best wishes to you and extended family at this sad time.

It has been an honor and privilege knowing such a kind and honest man. You will be missed.

Hi Dad,

Today the hard work begins. Not getting your phone call, not seeing you walk in town. Knowing you are watching over us will be enough for today though. With love.


Tim, my deepest sympathy to you and your entire family, with the loss of your father. I have never met him, but based on the amazing man that you are, I am sure he was a very special person. God Bless.

Tim, athough we didn't know your Dad long, we soon recognized he was a great and special man. Always upbeat, enthusiastic and smiling. What a treat it was to know him! You and your family know he'll always be with you. You can count on that.

Celebrating a life well lived, cherish the memories. You're family is in our thoughts and prayers. Words can not express. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
