  1. Cathy & Family, 
        Keeping all of you in my prayers for peace and comfort for this journey of life. I was admitted to Missouri Baptist Hospital  March 5 the same day that Bill passed, and as of now , I’m still here.! 
       Praying that the Good Lord walks with you Cathy and holds you up with His tender love and Amazing Grace as you go through this valley of death and be reunited together at God’s timing on the other side of Jordan. 
       If st a later time you need to talk or go out for coffee, let me know I would be more than glad to meet with you and talk❤️
      Bill was a good man and had a great outlook on life and his work ethics were above reproach. 
    So sorry that he left his loved ones behind because , the ones left on earth are the ones suffering. 
       Prayers and hugs as you blindly go through these next few days, weeks, and months feeling lonely and “Begin again” on your continued life on earth. 
       Live , Laugh & Love as you never have before❤️
       Praying for the peace that passes all understanding fall like dew on your shoulders daily 🙏

  9. I miss you Daddy. The link is from a video I made you a few years back, and even though they are not all pictures of you, you know everyone in them. We had such an adventure, didn't we? Now I know what you meant when you said you were happy I found my home in Phoenix, but you wished it wasn't so far away. If you can see me from Heaven, I'm blowing you kisses. I will think of you every time Shaun asks to go for a ride and every time Lainey loves and hugs our mutt Coconut. You are so far away, but I see you in every wrinkle in my 47 year old face.
    To my Beautiful, Lifelong Friends, Mom and Daddy, Thanks Again.

  10. It has been a year. I still think of you all the time, at any moment in the day. I miss you and see more of you in the wrinkles of my face each time I look in the mirror. I pray for you, Dad. I love you.
