A hard working man, devoted to his family and community, giving and caring. He spoke words of compassion to me in my darkest hours. We had the most beautiful home, the best Christmas's. I Always looked forward to his off jokes. He loved spending Holidays with his interesting unique family. People everywhere truly adored you Dad. I promise to remember the things you said to encourage me, especially in recent months. In my heart you always will be my hero Daddy. I love you forever, and I will see you in Heaven. ....that shooting star I saw tonight was you....rest peacefully my dear Father.

I will miss my dad's quick wit and all the silly jokes he told. I didn't always get them but they were still very funny. We shared a great love for flowers and gardens and all sorts of plants. I will miss those chats about how the plants are doing or how pretty the flowers looked every year. I sure hope there are a lot of yellow roses for you in heaven. Love You Always and Forever Dad. <3
