I am going to miss you so much. My heart has ached the past few years wishing I could have my regular old dad back. I think that is when my grieving started. I miss the days of having supper together or sitting out on my porch and just talking about nothing. I miss how you always had the patients to teach me how to fix my own stuff, a leaky toilet or broken lawnmower. I always felt proud when I could help a friend because you showed me how. My kids and I have been remembering all the good times with you on a daily bases. Even when I lived 2 hours away you were always there. In my younger years I can remember getting off work at midnight and meeting you at Larry´s bar for a fast game of pool. You lived 2 hours away and were considered a regular because you wanted to be there for me. And when I had Chris, you waited until mom and everyone left and showed up with bags of stuff for him. And you got a hotel room and stayed in town the whole time. I was to young to notice your feelings then but as I got older I saw dad, yes I saw. I´m so glad I saw and we were able to talk about these things. I love you so much!!

Pop, You will definitely be missed we had ALLOT of good times I have so many memories that will now just have to fill the space. You were the toughest, hardest working, hardest living, teaching, disciplining and caring soul for all of your 78 years (almost 79). The Alzheimer's took your freedom for the last 4 years but through it all you always recognized us Kids and grandchildren and you loved visiting with everyone. Sometimes the visits didn't start out so good but after a while we were in a pretty good place and whenever we parted ways you always had a smile or a wave at us. The few days you were in the Hospital I know the Tuesday, Wednesday and even part of Thursday you knew we were there and smiled and recognized Us that helped when it came time for you to leave us. We got to say goodbye in some sort of fashion. I know you are in a better place reunited with other loved ones that have left us.
