I miss you and your humor already .
But am so happy to know you are wrapped up in unconditional Love.

Donald was my cousin. He was quite a few years older than I so we didn’t really hang out a lot. I had not talked with him for many years and he called me, surprisingly, one day last year. I don’t remember how long ago but it was a real surprise and I enjoyed speaking with him. My heart goes out to his children and his brother and sister. His sister Elaine and I were quite close growing up and I spent a lot of time at their house. Donald was a good guy.
I couldn’t have asked for a better daddy! I love you so much and I really really know you loved me!I know you and mama are dancing in heaven together! I can’t wait to see you again!
Daddy I will miss you but am so glad that you and mama are together again. I will always remember our fishing trips to laurel cove and the many trips to chix beach and Virginia Beach. I am thankful to our Lord Jesus that you are healed and happy in heaven. I will see you and mama again in the twinkling of an eye.
Tell everybody there I love them a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!

I knew Don for many years we worked, laughed, cried, and prayed together. He had joy of his presence. I miss my friend and am joyful in his inheritance.
Don was my neighbor for last 17 years. He will be missed. He had a very kind heart and was always giving me gardening tips. He was the first person I met when moving in. It was actually the very first trip out. He back my truck in and hope Buddy my son unload.
God blessed Tim and I for allowing us to move next door to Don and Peggy. We never call them this but when talking among each other we would refer to them as Mom Peggy and Dad Don.
Daddy I miss you so much!
Thank you for l,oving our momma so passionately, for whistling and being happy most of your life. All the fun we had and even your not funny jokes!
See you soon #4
I still miss you to this day Papa! It’s not the same here in this world without you anymore> But you are in a better place with Nanny and God. Love you always Papa
