I will miss you more than words can explain, I don't know what I am going to do without you, I love you with all my heart. Thank you for your love, for always being there for me and my family. You were a wonderful father and grandfather. Margaret

Daddy, thank you for sharing your great love of God with me. You are one of my greatest gifts from God. He answered my prayers and gave you peace and I know He will help me through the pain of this enormous loss. My heart is so heavy. I love you.

Dad, I could never thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your family. I am truly blessed because of the greatest gift a father could give, his daughter (Patricia). I promise I will watch over her and take good care of her and your grandson for the remainder of my life. I will truly miss your smile and all the wonderful times we shared as a family. Please let mom know I send my love. I will never forget you two. God bless you both, together again!
