Dad, I can’t believe how much I miss you. People have told me how final it is to lose a parent and I never knew this truth until now. I know that you are not suffering any longer because you’re in God’s presence but still I miss you dearly. It’s so final! I can’t choose to call you and hear your voice. I can’t choose to go see you and hold your hand or see your smiling face, or share the days events. And I can’t tell you I love you kiss your forehead. I wish now that I chose to do all that more then I did. I miss spending time with you in my garage, talking and laughing.
Daddy I miss you because you were my dad and you were my best friend.

Words cant express how we feel. There are so many wonderful memories that we will always have and will cherish. I know that you are in Heaven with Jesus and I will always remember the talks we had about Jesus. The time we went to Holy Land in Bedford Va. The times snowmobiling and the trips to Fla and you showing us around. The many oversized bowls of ice cream but most of all your huge heart of gold and your laugh. I know you are in a place where there will be no more pain but there will be peace and comfort. Being able to talk to Our Lord and Savior and ask him anything you want. You will truly be missed but always will be in our hearts. See you in Heaven Les...Love Ruth Ann and Ed

Daddy I miss you so much my heart aches so bad knowing that your gone. I have so many wonderful memories with you that just not only one stands out because they are all so special and precious to me. I was and still am so blessed to have a father like you. Heave became a more beautiful place when you walked through those wonderful gates. I know you are at peace now with Grandma and Grandpa and watching over us. I love you Daddy and am going to mourn for you everyday until the day comes that I get to see you again. I love you Daddy and will miss you always. Rest in peace Daddy xoxoxoxo
