    "Saying goodbye was the hardest thing I ever had to do Dad. I know you are in a better place and probably already on the golf course. Say Hi to Grandma and Grandpa for me. You’ll always be with me and I’m so grateful I got to be with you and listen to your favorite song until you crossed over. RIP Dad. I love you so much!! Your loving daughter, Candy"

    "I have so much to say and so many memories. Wish I could’ve seen you and told you how much I loved you and what you meant to me. You taught me how to drive, gave me away when I got married, you were always the one who gave great advise and knew what to say and do in time of crisis. You were the “fixer” you were my second Dad, you were the take charge man. You didn’t take any bull and always said it like it was, no sugar coating. Loving but firm. You were also an understanding, listening ear. I really missed having you in my life but am grateful for the very important years that you were there. I’m not sure if you knew what a great impact you had on me. You raised me from 8 til my early 20s I thank you for stepping up and being a Dad to me when my father couldn’t be there. You will greatly missed by many, I hope you’re playing music in the sky and waiting for the hug I didn’t get to give you. I love you Your stepdaughter, Anita❤️"
