My precious, precious father. Not a day goes by that I dont wished thyat I could call you and just talk. I would have done anything to have seen you over the past few months. I am sure you know, our dearest Scott passed away in October. My heart is just so broken. I miss him incredibly and there is nothing I can do about that. I miss you, grandma and Scott. However, I know all three of you are up there with our Father and you are not in pain or suffering. Your entire family is together again! Oh what joy that must bring you you and your brothers, grandma and grandpa. THe kids are growing so much! By leaps and bounds. You would be soooo pround of them, dad. Mom is going in sor surgery in Feb/March this year and to be totally honest, I dont want her to do it. Maybe later in the year, but right now I dont have the strength or ability to take care of any right now. And the through of losing her is just unbarable. Mom keeps saying that she doesnt want to be here and it breaks my heart. I wished you were here...... I cant wait to see you again and get some fishing in!

I have been missing you very much Dad! There is not a day that goes by that my heart doesn't ache to talk with you just one more time. I miss your laughter, your words of wisdom and your unconditional love. I was told you were my Angel.....I can feel your presence. Thanks for watching out for me. I cannot wait to see you in heaven.

My memories of my dad are many. He was my hero growing up and I can remember when he would come home from ironworking all day. He would always save his red apple and share it with me at the kitchen table as soon as he walked in the door. I would jump on his lap and we would talk and eat. My heart is broken and I will miss my dad so very much! Thank you, Dad, for all of the good memories and the times of laughter we shared - all of mine are good! Love Always, CarrieLynn :-)
