    Daddy this is probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to experience in my life. Words cannot express the pain I feel. I know your in a better place and not hurting any more. I love you daddy.

    Hey Dad I love you so much I’ve never had to experience losing somebody especially a loved one or a best friend and you were both my dad I love so much and my best friend. I never went a day without calling you to tell you good morning or about a semi I seen or classic car or asking you for help on fixing something or calling you to tell you goodnight I never thought I’d have to say goodbye to the strongest person I know I’m glad you got to spend the last 3 months with the ones who loved you the most. Thank you for waiting till Abby and I were home safe I couldn’t of asked for a better dad you did a great job raising me to be the man I am today. I love you so much and I miss you more then words can describe. Love your Sonny boy

    Chris, I pray that you find some peace and comfort in the memories you have of your Dad . Those memories can not be taken away and will keep him with you everyday . The hurt is deep yes ,it hurts so much because the love between you was deep . I am very glad he was able to spend Christmas with our family and that you were able to see him and tell him what he meant to you before he passed. Know that he is not hurting or suffering anymore and that he loved you . God’s peace to you , Michael, and Sherry as you move through this very difficult time .

    Forever in our hearts-forever in our minds- is something I always told u. I always told u it wasn’t goodbye it was see you later. I was only in your life a short 5 years but I can’t thank you enough for the lessons and the love that were shown to me. You created an amazing man who I am lucky to call my husband and I can’t thank you enough. You are greatly missed but I want you to know that I will always take care of your Sonny boy. We love u and miss you. We will see you again someday. Love always and forever.
