Dad,

Yesterday we had Fiona’s going away party here at the house, it was sad not to see you sitting on the couch watching sports or the news. Jeff Gorden didn’t win. I would look over at the couch and picture you there or sitting on chair on the deck. I miss you very much dad.It’s not the same without you. It hurts that we can’t see you or come for a visit anymore. The days just keeping going by but their is not a day that goes by that you are not in my thouhts. I love you dad…. Gail

Dad, It’s hard not getting to see you. There are so many things that remind me of you and things we have done together. It’s sad knowing I can’t just come by and see you. It still seems so unreal that you are gone. You will be missing Fiona’s going away party Sunday. I know how much you loved a party and being with all of us. I love you dad.

Gonna miss going food shopping for you with Gail every Wednesday or getting you all riled up by disagreeing with your conservative political ways. You were a good man and well loved. I know your in a better place now, just keep an eye over your family and lend a guiding light now and then. “Fair Winds and Following Seas”.

My prayers and condolences are with you all, no doubt Eddie will be missed. I have some special memories of when he used to tease us about Copenhagin – after church about 30 years ago. Rest in peace dear Eddie. Looking forward to meeting you again on that day. Love, grace, and peace to family through this difficult time.
