Rest in Peace Daddy! It gives me great comfort knowing you had the love of a good wife, and an amazing step-family that loved you and kept you company and gave you joy, especially in your later years. I am sorry I could not be there…but I love you and will always hold you in my heart as my one and only earthly father. Now I will rely 100% on my Heavenly Father for the rest of my days! See you in Heaven Dad!!! Your loving daughter Annette.
To me, I’ll aways think of him as a true renaissance man…painter, sculptor, inventor. He could do it all. And luckily he taught me.
You gave me a fondness for fishing and graphic arts. I am looking at a painting you did years ago and it lifts my heart. Sorry I couldn’t be there but I’m sure you heard my prayers. And although we didn’t see each other very often, you were still with me. Love you Dad.
