    Dear Cousin:

    Kenny called with the sad news this afternoon. Sort of eerie, but we (i.e… my wife, Cheryl, and I) came upon your wedding pictures the other day while getting ready for an upcoming community garage sale. I swear it seems like just yesterday that I caught your garter. It was as if Tom had tossed it right to me. Funny how that moment somehow got cemented in my memory.

    Please accept our sincere condolences and know that Tom — and you — will be in our prayers.

      Bobby:

      It was good to hear from you but I am sorry it had to be under these circumstances. Thanks for yours and Cheryl’s condolences. It’s been a terrible time with all of Tom’s illnesses but I am glad that his suffering is over. The last month has been pure torture for both him and me and my family watching what he had to endure. I know he is still around cause he’s been sending all of us signs. His remains are in my home now so I feel him even stronger. Hope all is well with you and yours. Keep in touch.

      Love,
      Pat

    Dad,

    I will miss you so much! I will cherish all the times we had together..all your stories from Vietnam, crazy stories from your car business, and just the times you called me just to say Hi and to see how I was doing even though you were feeling bad. You never let me down, ever! I always looked up to you and so very proud on how you provided for us and never gave up. I know you fought a long hard battle and now its time for you to finally rest at peace. I love you Dad! XOXO

    Hi Dad! Just sitting here thinking about you and missing you! Everyday I wait for a phone call from you..asking me how I am doing and realize a minute later that call won’t come. 🙁
    I think about you everyday and wonder if you are okay. You know how I always worried about you. I hope you are playing golf like you always loved to do. Please watch over us and stop by to say Hi.
    Love you and Miss you very much! Mandy XOXO

    Hi Dad! It’s the day before Thanksgiving….Adam will be doing his Turkey and Ham as usual and will be lots of food. I am gonna miss hearing you say “you made too much”. I still can’t believe you are not going to be here for the holidays. I am still not accepting it I guess. I hope you stop by and say Hi. Happy Thanksgiving! I will save you the dark meat. 🙂 Love and miss you very much! XOXO
