Late 60'sMe, Perry, Tommy and Terry were in the woods early one morning, Perry opened up my fifth of whiskey and threw the cap away,needless to say, we were all feeling pretty good at Christmas dinner that day.
Thanks for the memories.

So sorry for your loss. You will be in our prayers.
Kathy,We are so sorry for your loss. Perry was a wonderful man and he will surely be missed.
Daddy, I miss you so much. So much of you was taken from me before you even passed. I never had a chance to say goodbye the way I wanted to. I told her I only wanted to hug your neck one more time but she would not let me come. I am glad to know that you are with mother now. That is who you should have been with all your life. Things would have been so different, so much happier. That peace you wanted, you have it now. You are free. I love you daddy, I always will.
Hi daddy, you are on my mind today. I like that I can come here and see you and talk to you. I talk to you everyday, can you hear me? I hope so. I miss so much today. Your birthday was last week. I so wanted to pick up the phone and wish a happy birthday and then we would joke about how you were too young to have a daughter my age so then I would get younger for you. I know you are at peace daddy, something you longed for your whole life.I love you.
my daddyOne of my most favorite memories of my daddy was when he saw me graduate from college. I ran out of the line and he leaned over the railing, I reached up and grabbed his hand. He was crying and mouthed the words "I am so proud of you" I ran back to the line of gradutes and I could see him standing thru most of the ceremony waiting to watch his daughter, the only college graduate in our family to get my diploma. I love and miss you Daddy.your only daughter
HI Daddy, I miss you so much. I have not seen you in so long. The other day I needed to fix something and I knew you would know what to do. I wanted to call you up and ask you . There are a thousand things that I wanted to do with you but your life was cut short by ALS. I hope that you are close to mother and both of you enjoyed all that is beautiful in heaven. I love you daddy. always and forever, your daughter.
Hi daddy just missing you and mother today. Today she went to be with Jesus and with you. I am so happy you are together forever in eternity. Watch over us help me to forgive that horrible person that stole our grandparents home. I love you daddy
memoriesI remember when you stayed with me when everyone else went to go see Derek in the NNICU. You held my hand and told me that everything would be alright. It was one of the few times in my life that we shared a father-daughter moment that was uninterupted by anyone. Remember when you came to my college graduation and I didn't know you were coming? I saw you leaning over the rails waving to me, I broke out of the line and went and grabbed your hand. I know you only stayed until I walked but it meant so much to me. I know you fought and lost many battles over your children. It should have never been that way. I am a different kind of step mother. I treat her as if she were my own child. We deserved that too daddy. I have no one else to say these things to so I write them here. I hope you can hear the words when I speak them. Stay close to mother, she loved you her whole life. I miss you daddy.
