Dad was a very loving and devoted dad, and taught us that family always comes first. I have very fond memories of dad, he was a great man and an even greater dad. I'd like to think that dad would be proud of us for being the caring people that we are, that he helped mold us to be. We all love and miss you dad.Dad was a very caring and giving man.He had a great sense of humor, loved to laugh and enjoyed making others laugh. He loved kids and enjoyed telling his stories, usually the kids would ask me if they were true or not. He had a beautiful smile and always was alot of fun to be around. He could always put a smile on my face.He was a great Dad and he enjoyed being a dad, I think. He taught us alot, but most of all he taught us to love.When he got older, he got softer, we always used to joke with him about it, but it must be something we all do. He was a wonderful man that loved life. Dad loved music, I remember when we were younger we used to play records and dance, I loved it, even as a kid. When Dad got sick the first time and made it out ok, I recorded the song "Dance with my Father again" and gave it to him, and that's what I thought of, when we were younger. It was a second chance for us. I remember asking Dad "How many miracles can you get?" and he said "as many as you can accept Petey." Dad had a way about him, he would come off hard sometimes, but he was a softy. Dad was always a hard worker and did whatever he had to to get by,honestly. Dad loved to travel and did alot of it. He used to talk about where he'd been all the time. Dad's stories never got old. I loved to listen to him and watch his eyes light up. His eyes would light up and he'd have that beautiful smile on his face. Dad had a beautiful smile. Dad was very special in so many ways. He was a strict man, but added a loving touch to it. Dad loved the west and always talked about the sunsets. His favorite holiday was Easter, I always would send him a card. Dad enjoyed life and I enjoyed having him in mine. I love and miss you Dad! There's not a day go by that I don't think of you.

 Personal Notes

My dad was and always will be the best man that ever walked this earth. He had a heart of gold and would have helped anyone who needed it. Since his death, there has not been a day that goes by that I don't shed a tear for what we lost. Growing up, me and my sister Petey were always with dad. We were his road dogs. As adults, that was still true. I will forever have a hole in my heart. I wish there would have been more time with you, but in my heart I know that there would never be enough time.

I miss and love you dad everyday, I wish things could've been different.It was very hard seeing you in such a vulnerable state, you've always been our rock. We wanted so much to take care of you like you had done for us for so many years. I love and miss you dad, you are in my heart and soul forever.

My dad was the type of person that would have helped anyone who needed it. He taught us four girls to be the same way. My dad was always my friend and as I got older he became my best friend. I am just so lost without my dad. I still talk to him everyday. I miss him so much. The hole that he left inside my heart will never be filled for the rest of my time here on earth. I never thought my dad would die and leave us all alone. He was always so strong. In his last days, he became vulnerable and weak and I still didn't realize that he would die. I just knew that he was going to fight to come back to us. There are times when I wish he was looking down on us and watching over us and then there are times when I hope he isn't because I know he would tell me to quit crying everyday and try to be happy because he wouldn't want me to be sad. I just can't do it though. I miss him so much and will always have a hole where he left. I will never be truly happy again and I know this disappoints him.
