Being a parent is not easy and does not come with instructions.  But, you and mom did a wonderful job.  You gave us kids the best childhood anyone could have wanted.  You worked so hard to provide for us.  Now it is time for you to rest.  Through the good times and the bad, you were the best dad you knew how to be and I loved you.

Just like always the baby of the family demanded all your time, but this time she was holding your hand to the end.  Watch over Debbie she needs you.

I will always remember all the laughs and chats on the phone we both shared. I am so glad you are no longer suffering and now can see all who have past before you and share in their comfort as God carried you home to him. You were a man with many words, often gruff but also so sweet to me every time I called asking for Cindy.
Will miss having our "special" chats.
Glad there is yet another Angel to look after the rest of us here on Earth. Give my Mom & Dad a big hug & kiss from me . God bless you and glad that your finally at peace.
Hugs & Kisses
