Dad, It's difficult knowing you are no longer here, but I know you are now where you wanted to be and that was to be with the love of your life! There aren't enough words to tell you how much I love you and how grateful I am for everything you have done for me! I love dad and I will always have you in my heart. In the words of Frank Sinatra, "You Did It Your Way!

Roberta, Judy and Nicki, I’m sorry I can’t be there for support, just know I thought the world of your Dad/Grandpa. I always enjoyed our conversations he was just so easy to talk to. He’s at peace and with your mom/grandmother with a big smile on his face. ??

To Ron, Steve, Roberta, and Judy. Rhonda and I are sorry for your loss as words are never enough. Remember as your dad and mine said, 'you can build anything with a square' which I am in possession of. Sorry we will not be able to make it to the service but our prayers are with you. God bless.

"My Hero and My Strength" Dad you where the most amazing man i knew. You taught me so much in life and what to do with it. We both beat breast cancer just a year apart. You where always there for all of us. I'm still numb and can't believe you are truly gone. I know you are with mom and can't be any happier right now. Until we meet again. I love you dad and you will always be with me.

Dad was a great man. He always made me feel like I was part of the family. I was so glad I got to spend some time with him recently. I'm sure he is very happy up there with Mom. Both are looking down on the beautiful family that created with so much pride. I love you all.
