Its almost your birthday my beloved I love and miss you so much. cant believe its been almost 4 years. I love you Your wife forever
My Dad was my Hero! He was an amazing fisherman, artist, Husband and the most sweetest caring Father. He has taught me more than any other person in this world. The love and respect he had for my Mom showed me that, that is how a woman was to be treated and I should expect nothing less from a man! His knowledge of so many things made me sit and talk with him often just to pick his brain. He was a huge part of my world and accepting it is very hard. I will miss you every day for the rest of my life. I love you so much Daddio.
My beloved Husband, my best friend and my soul mate of 38 years, has passed so suddenly. He is no longer in pain which gives me some comfort. It seems impossible to belive that he is gone from this earth. He was a wonderful husband. Most women can only dream about meeting a man like him. He always put me first and was loving to the end. He was my best friend and I could go to him for anything and he would always help me. God blessed us by meeting each other and creating a beautful family. He was so proud of his 3 daughters beyond words. He adored his 11 grandchildren. I will always love you Gary and you are forever in my heart.
Gary was a true man of honor. Growing up, Gary taught me so many valuable lessons that he know I would encounter in my life. Gary was kind and delibirate on his messages and these messages always had a positive spin. Gary was insturmental and a big part of who I am today. The biggest lesson that I learned from Gary's love did not come through his direction or guidance, but it came through his actions on how he raised his children, and the unending love that he shared with my sister Jeri. These bonds and devotions is who Gary is. Gary never had a bad thing to day about anyone - his smile reflected his happy life. You will be deeply missed my brother, and until we meet again, you will ALWAYS be in Gods care and through him you will ALWAYS remain in our lives.
