Dear Dad, It is with the heaviest of hearts that we say rest in peace to you. You will be forever missed and never forgotten. The joy and laughter you brought to each day is immeasurable. Picture after picture showing love and kindness, compassion and patience, pride and modesty, is a constant reminder that we lost the best man we will ever know.

Dear Dad, It is with the heaviest of hearts that we say rest in peace to you. You will be forever missed and never forgotten. The joy and laughter you brought to each day is immeasurable. Picture after picture showing love and kindness, compassion and patience, pride and modesty, is a constant reminder that we lost the best man we will ever know. We watched with admiration how you treated everyone with respect and dignity. As young kids, the bear hugs, wrestling matches, and games of catch ensured us that we were always safe. With mom, a simple peck on the cheek and a hug confirmed things were going to be more than fine. You knew that it was the simplest things in life that mattered most. As we grew to be young adults, we began to appreciate your work ethic and how treated your friends and neighbors. They always knew that if there was something they needed, you would be there to help. We promise to strive for the same qualities and values that you held. Your grandchildren will know the great man that you were. We will instill the same beliefs, values, and love that you gave us. We take comfort knowing that mom and you gave all your heart and love to our family. We will always carry your memories, stories, and laughter with us. You leave behind many family members and friends that will miss you dearly. We will see you again. Until then.keep the cribbage board ready, fine tune that short game, and enjoy watching that 10 pin fall. We Love you and Thank you...for everything.
