Sue and family, I just heard of your loss today. I am sorry to have missed the services as Fred was a friend and he always put a smile on my face! We lost Dad in 2010 so I understand the depth of your grief- and yes he will always be alive in your heart for you are all a part of him. With much sadness.

I am so sorry for you loss. Losing your father will change you forever but he will always be a part of everything you are and everything that you do. I will be thinking of you all today and I am really sorry that I could not make it today. I LOVE YOU CHRISTY and I am praying for you and your family.

Your Father is always with you... He's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; he's the smell of oil in your freshly oiled car; he's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your Father lives inside your laughter. And he's crystallized in every tear drop.
He's the place you came from, your first home; and he's the map you follow with every step you take. He's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you.

Not time, not space... not even death!

I can't believe you're gone daddy! But if anyone understood each other without saying words, it was you and I and we knew that.
Always in my heart...until we meet again

Love your daughter always, Christy

As you rest in the arms of our Lord, know that your work here on earth is done. I only know Christy and Debbie, but the wonderful people that they are comes from your love and strength you have given them all their lives.
