    I will miss you soon much but I have many many years of memories with you. From when I was a little kid going for rides in anything from the loudest mack garbage trucks to the road runner and many many impalas. Going to wrestling matches at the garden and tormenting the chinese people at the restaurant. You were always my hero and I try to be just like you every day. I love you uncle john.

    Happy first Heavenly Father’s Day Dad. I miss you so so much everyday but I know you are keeping an eye on us. I know you are looking down and laughing at your crazy grandchildren. We love you very much ❤

    Missing you so much Dad. I have been thinking of you and how you loved this time of year. You would have already planned Thanksgiving and bought some decoration for Christmas. It won’t be the same without you this year. We love you so much. Keep sending me those signs

    Happy 1st Heavenly Thanksgiving Dad. I missed your phone call this morning telling me to come over to taste test your stuffing and that you saved me some to bring home. I’m struggling to get thru the day without you. I miss you so much! I know you were looking down on me and guiding me to build the bathroom cabinet the other day. I could totally say “I am my father’s daughter” for that one! I love you so much and I hope you are enjoying sneaking Jack some turkey up there today.

    Merry Christmas Dad! It’s been very hard to write anything on this lately because I miss you everyday and the holidays are hard without you. You loved them so much especially Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know you were with us again today when the kids opened their gifts. James is still loving the RC monster trucks and cars just like you did so it was a nice reminder of you today too. I’m so glad I have all these great memories of Christmas with not only me but how you were with your grandchildren. You built everyone’s toys and enjoyed it. As you can see watching me build them now.. some of these things are tricky and I wish you were here. I know you would have had fun being creative with these elves too. Anyways I won’t keep rambling on here but I love you so much!!! Keep sending me those signs dad and I’ll make sure to get the kids to La Sallette this year since we are all finally healthy again. ❤️💚
