My fav pic of dad and I. I LOVE YOU MUCH! MISS YOU MORE! I picked up my phone to call you a few times in the last few days... I will just talk to Jesus more! When I pick up the phone and push #3.... Jesus will have to tell you everything I have to say. My heart is broken by the missing of you! (and people think I am nuts when I play your message to me from your birthday TWO years ago..singing Happy Birthday to me.. to yourself...) ummm - I just need to hear your voice... the 3 am phone calls to tell me you needed toothpaste, dyno tape, or just to see if I am awake... I WILL and DO miss!
I fulfilled my promise to you - your funeral was everything you wanted it to be more and more... I played your favorite song Blessed Assurance, you had your four hour viewing, mom and us kids and a few others took you to Great Lakes National Cemetary with FULL military honors and your 21 Gun Salute! (near Grand Blanc where you were born, I felt that your body was returning home.) Your tombstone will have your military info, John 14:1, and husband, father, grandpa, great papa on it. I am proud to be called your daughter and OH one more thing! Jeff and I are going to continue your tape ministry. I love you daddy! Thank you for being more than my dad. Thank you for being my brother in Christ - I will see you in the morning dad. I love you! Jeanne
