Dad, not a day goes by that I don't think of you. You are so missed by many of us down here... Every year at St Patrick's Day, I say a special Prayer to you. I wish that you were/are still here on Earth, but you'll ALWAYS be in my Heart... Love you dad...

Grandpa, I've been thinking about all of the stories you've told me over the years and I'm really going to miss that. I already missed living a block away from you. I'm so glad you got to see me turn 21. Watch over my dad and everyone it's been such a horrible year. I'll miss you a lot during Christmas but will always be thinking of you. I love you Grandpa..

I am so deeply sorry to hear of Jerry's passing. He was always, and will always be one of my most favorite people. I always looked foward to the next time he and Wallie would come in to see me. For reasons I can't quite explain, Jerry always reminded me alittle of my Dad (maybe it was the teasing). :) Jerry will always hold a very special place in my heart. I will miss him greatly. The world has lost a very wonderful man.
