I wish I was able to be there with all of you.

My Papa,

Like Jen said, it's hard to believe that you are really gone now. To think that we will never go back to the house at Shadow to see the whole family, YOUR whole family, complete again breaks my heart. We're all here because of you and your nuturing love. Shadow has always been one of my favorite places to be because it meant that I got to spend time with you and Mona. No matter how bad I was feeling, it was you two that could always make me happy again. You had a way of making me feel like I could do anything in the whole world. You believed that people could do truly good things for others, and you entrusted that belief into your children and grandchildren. On some days, it was because of your will for me to succeed that I even got out of bed in the morning. I knew you would be proud of me no matter what. I will always remember those times that you and Mona came to watch me play softball. I would try so hard to play good for you, but I knew that even if I was benched the whole game that you would still greet me with a smile and tell me how great I was. I hope that you'll still watch me play from heaven, cause when I hit my first homer it will be for you, and I want you to have the best seat! I love you, Papa, and I want to thank you for being such a supportive Grandpa. I will miss you always always always.

Love, your Boomer

Dad, I will really miss you and all the fun times we had together. You were a great Dad. I hope all your pain is gone and you are resting with the rest of our family members that have left us. One day I will see you again, but my heart will be sad because you are not here now. You always stressed that family should stick together, and we have and always will because we all grew up knowing and living by the family values You and Mom taught us. We have a great family, it will be different with you gone, but you will be forever in my heart. Bye, Dad.

Here's to Tim, a great brother-in-law and a stand-up guy. We'll miss you and think of you often. We know you're finally at peace after a long and difficult fight. May God bless you and keep you, Tim.

It's hard to believe that you aren't with us anymore, although I know you are in a better place.

To hear that we will never be able to watch "Tim" jitter bug with those feet that barely touched the ground is a sad thought. But knowing Tim and
