Dad,

You were the Best! You were always there when we needed you. I miss you so much saying goodbye was so hard I still can’t believe you won’t be around to make us smile.

Some of my greatest memories are all those Saturday mornings you and I spent at Mark’s football games rain, sleet or snow, we had a standing date.

I love you Dad.

You worked so hard your whole life I guess its time for you to rest.

Love always,

Erin

Dad-

The day you came into my life I was blessed with a gift from God. Eventhough you are gone you will stay in my heart forever. I will always remember the unconditional love and compassion you gave. You have been the biggest inspiration in my life, and I thank you for everything I am. Without you I would not be the person I am today. With all my love, Your Daughter..Elizabeth

Dad-

There are no words to express how much I miss you at this moment. You were the best Dad ever! I have been thinking of nothing but you for the past week and the memories that I have are the greatest. I know that you will live on in my heart forever. It is not fair that you were taken from us so soon. I guess it is true what they say “Only the Good Die Young!”. You were truly one of the good ones. I take comfort in knowing that you are in Heaven with Grandpa and Grandma Luthy and Uncle Gene and Uncle Ronny making them laugh. Take care of Grandpa Mario and Grandma Dorothy too. I know that I will see you again one day, but life here on earth will never be the same.

Remember that I will love and think of you always.

Love- Mari

Little Brother you were always so brave and faced life so positively. From the time you were little and stricken with polio you never let it stand in your way. I can still remember those early days with your brace playing baseball and running with the other kids. As you got older there was nothing you were afraid to try. To that last time I saw you in the hospital you were still optimistic and brave. You have earned the right to rest in peace. God Bless you.
