    Dad…There are so many things left to say. But I guess some things are better left unsaid. No matter what you say, I will always be your daddy’s lil girl. And you will always be my hero…

    I try everyday to be strong for mom. These last few days have been hard, but today I am really having a hard time. Everything I see I think of you. I drove your truck today for the first time since you left us. Boy was that hard. I just want to heasr your voice say “Candybar” and feel you squeeze your arms around me. I want my Pops back! I never realized how hard this would be, but I guess I wasn’t prepared for it to happen so fast either. You were just talking and joking and then the next you were just laying there lifeless. I am so glad my children were able to be with you and know how much of a wonderful inspiration to me you are. We love you and miss you dearly!

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, Candice. I know the grief of losing a parent is life-changing and only time and our happy memories can get us through it. As well as spending time with those close to us. Take time to cry, laugh, hug, and share memories with your family and friends…thinking about you all.

    For Mike and his family.
    Losing someone so at the center of your family hurts in so many ways. From watching the pictures of Chris’ life it’s clear he had a full life.

    Dad…. There are so many questions I have for you that I want answers to. I just cant believe this happend so soon. You had a great life but deserved so much more. You were the hardest working man i knew and was so proud to call you my Dad. At your service I talked to this one guy you worked with at stadium sheet metal and he had nothing but great things to say about you. Every story he told me about you put a smile on my face. Im not going to say goodbye, instead I will say see you later. I know you have already had your back scratched by lala just let her know when i get up there she is scratching my back :} Well dad I will see you later and I love you.

    Sorry for your loss.
    Chris and I worked together for about a year. He was a hard worker, and always on the go. He taught me a great deal, and I have thought of him often. When I think of him I have always thought of him as a good man.

    Teryn…I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. Pat and I have been looking for you on Fridays and last week they informed us of your husband’s death. I send you my heartfelt sympathy.

    One of your two Friday gals

    2ffIn 7th grade I had some sewing exeriepnce going into Home Ec but sewing on a different machine was rather precarious. The first clothing project was a peasant blouse, mine was red with blue and white ricrac. The school had gotten new machines and they seemed so Fast! I remember placing the blouse under the foot, adjusting the ricrac, setting the needle, bracing my hands, holding my breath and hitting the gas! It seemed like the pedal allowed two speeds: Stop or High Speed Go My mother was very tolerant when I came home telling her that you HAD to use a spatula to level the flour on the measuring cups and spoons when baking or your cookies would just not turn out. I’m not sure how she managed before that valuable information.4e
