Hey Grandpa, its been so long. The last memory I have of you while you were alive was when I was at your old house in Desert Hot Springs. I remember you being in the back room, and I went in to see you and you grabbed my hand and we prayed. I was little and was scared to see you so sick. I wish you could still be here. Im really happy for the time I had you. I

I miss you dad so much. Sometimes I see a man that resembles you and I just wanna run up and hug him. I can still hear your voice. I miss talking to you. I wish you were still here all the time,

Every day that passes, I miss you as much as the day you were born into the eternal life. I still am thankful for every memory and experience I had with you. I see you every time I look in my son's eyes. The joy and pain of life may sway back and forth, but my love is still strong, a gift you gave me. Thank you. God Bless you. And I will see you again one day....

So today it has been 5 years since I lost the most influential person in my life. I miss him dearly, but I do what he asked me before he passed to the best of my ability. He stressed the importance of the relationship with God. It is in the lessons he taught me that I found the promise that me and him will meet again. No more tears, now its only anticipation (and ok, yes, many many tears) for

Hi Tina, Crystal and Erick,
I was very sorry to hear about your Dad. He was a very nice guy. He will be missed.
My name is Janet Hare. I am the sister of Paula Sandel. Your Grandmother Joann and Paula were friends from high school. They also lived a couple of houses apart from each other on Cresson St. in Norwalk where they grew up. The phone number I had for Joann was not a good number. I need to

Well Dad, it's been 5 months since we said good-bye. I miss you so much. I didn't realize growing up and bumping heads like we did was because we were so much alike. As I became an adult you were the one person who "really" got me. Dad, I just want to tell you that I love and miss you so much and I thank you for teaching me to have a good heart, to be honest and thankful. I

It has been a little over two months since my father has passed and this is the first time I have been able to try to write what I feel. My dad was more than just the man who raised me, he was the man who taught me to treat people better than they treat you. He taught me to work for the only person who matters - Jesus. He was my heart and my friend. There is nothing on

Gary was an amazing person, he was always uplifting, positive and inspirational. He was a great role model not only at work but in life. He loved his family and made everyone feel like family, thank you Gary. My prayers go out to his family and loved ones
