I miss you dad. I read through these every now and then and look at the picture of you....I miss seeing you that way. I think about you every day and the pain is still here and still so fresh. I feel so lost some days dad....I still want to pick up the phone and call you just to see how you are doing, but I can't. I hope you are happy now dad......I hope you were able to shed the pain of the life you had here. I love you always.

It has been five months and nineteen days since I received the phone call that I have always dreaded. In the last five months I have experienced more emotion than I ever imagined possible. My heart has broken a million times over, I have laughed at old memories, I have been angry, and oh how I have missed you dad. I have been watching old videos of us camping when I was young. I watched closely, the smile on your face hid the sadness in your eyes. Something I never noticed until it was too late. I am so sad, so devastated, so confused over it all. I know I will never figure out what caused your suffering, but I have a very good idea. I hope at least with part of your life here you felt true happiness. I hope you felt the love that I had for you, I hope you know that I looked up to you for such a long time. I hope you know that I still love you and I think about you every day. I still see your smile. I see you in my dreams almost every night, I miss you dad. I know now you are with God, your pain is easing, and you are learning so much about the life you led here.

I remember growing up I would always say my dad was my hero and I felt so proud to call you my dad. You had a special place in so many peoples hearts. I looked up to you in so many ways, I wanted to be just like my daddy. Just like the time I shaved my chin, cuz i was trying to be just like you :) I have so many memories growing up good and bad that i will always keep close with me. Thank you for being my father . "If there ever comes a day when we cant be together, keep me in your heart, and I'll stay there forever." Rest in Peace and make sure you save some of the big fish for me dad. Love you always and forever

Bye daddy i will always love you so very much. I hope that the heavy burden that you carried in this life has been lifted. I am so grateful for the many experiences that I and my sweet sisters and mom had with you. I will forever remember our fishing trips, camping trips, our, rocking out to The Judds, and you and moms amazing camping breakfasts. I love you. You really did shine a light in my life, sometimes not in the direction that i thought it should go but I always ended up learning something from it. I'm sorry for your suffering, but I know that you are in Heavenly Fathers arms now and I know that you have work to do. So, until we meet again my sweet dad. Peace be unto you. I will always remember our times here good and bad and will forever be grateful for our journey together. These words will always remind me of you dad. I love you. "Daddys hands were soft and kind when I was cryin, daddys hands were hard as still when I done wrong. Daddys hands weren't always gentle but I come to understand there was ALWAYS LOVE in daddys hands".

My Dearest Alan,Let me first start out by telling you that you were my first love, I really never knew what that meant until I married you. We had so many good times together going on our camping trips just you and me, dancing in the woods by the camp fire and you howling at the moon. I'll always keep those memories in my heart. I also want to tell you thanks for ALL the GREAT times we had with our girls, camping, fishing in the boat, roasting marshmellows by the fire, and your awesome Dutch Oven chicken, you were so proud of that. I know that GOD has you in a very special place because you were a very SPECIAL man, God Bless you Alan, I know that you are no longer in pain. We all will keep our special names that you gave us close to our Hearts.You will be missed!

"the bright lights of Hardheim..." Every GI, every German friend, knew this song your 'wrote' about the town where you served in the Army. Stoney, they called you. And Stoney was the guy who inducted all the newbies, took them under his wings. In those days, most German pubs and restaurants where still "off limits" to the American soldiers. By the time you left Hardheim, every establishment there had opened its doors to the Americans. You were the one who helped open them. In those days you were everyone's hero, you were my hero. May the bright lights of eternity welcome you and shine upon you.

Dad,I have so many memories, I don't even know where to begin. I have been thinking so much this past week and the one thing that comes back to me the most is your smile. I haven't seen you smile in such a long time, and I miss that. I have been talking alot this week about our fishing trips together and all the little funny stories about you. Like you dancing around the house with your broom rockin' out to Steppenwolf :) We watched our old videos the other day, when we all made a tape for you for father's day. The three of us singing, oh boy if we only knew then how we really sounded :) haha. I miss you dad and I love you. I hope you are finally at peace and out of pain. I love you always,Melba!
