My deepest condolences to the whole Rector family. I was very saddened to hear of Woodie's passing. Ya'll are in my prayers. Woodie was my buddy and am very disappointed I wasn't able to see him before my move to Oklahoma. He is in good hands now and back with Maw, Craig and Paulie. I'm sure they're dancing with the Angels!!! I was so privileged to know such a loving, compassionate person. He was unique in his own way, and would give you his shirt off his back if you needed one, that is why...

Dear Dad,
My heart is hurting so much right now I miss you so much I even had coffee with you this morning and I definitely feel your presence with me. I Love you so very much and that will never leave me. We had a few years together with you being with me and I may add they were all great even though we did have a few arguments but nothing that we did not over come. I miss you meeting me at the door everyday after work for our coffee together and then our Dinner and may I add waiting...

We send are love and may you rest in peace with love from the Hogan Family

Grandpa you will be greatly missed. I will never forget my childhood summers spent with you fishing, great Sunday dinners, and your stories. Your great- grand children will hold on to many great memories as well. Donovan will always remember you asking him if he wanted to "moke". Landon always called you great PaPa with the flash light, and he still takes his flash light you gave him to bed with him. Serena will always remember you asking "where's my girl" I will make sure...

Dad I will miss you so much, not seeing or talking to you and not having dinners on Sunday even thou you never liked your food, haha! I am so glad your out of pain and have reunited with mom, Craig and Paulie and finding someone up there to tell your jokes too. You will never be forgotten and rest in peace my daddy, I love you so. xoxoxoxoxo

My sympathy and God's blessings go out to Woodie's family & friends. He was a Hero and a Gentleman. A pleasure to know.

I wanted to share this picture with you to show our very happy father, we will remember this instead of sadness or bad times. There is no one that will be missed more than him. From Donna, Destiny, and Jon.
