  4. Kathy & Steve Freeman says:

    Dad, you will be missed more than you know. Steve and I were so fortunate to call you Dad. You accepted us as your adopted kids right from day one. You and Mom taught your kids, to love everyone, forgive, accept and teach all with love and understanding. We are truly blessed to be part of your extended family. Mom will be loved, supported and taken care of just as you took care of her, so don’t worry about her. You left everyone prepared to face whatever comes up. Fly high and know that we will see you again someday. Hugs, Love and thankfulness.

  5. Ed says:

    Thank you, Dad, for being a great father, mentor, coach, provider among others. I am so happy you and Mom created a family that can hug, kiss and say we love each other without hesitation. I will never forget the great times we had together or the lessons you taught me or the incredible natural GPS you had or the iconic pocket protector you kept. I love you, I’ll miss you … Ed

    Dad, it’s been a true blessing being a part of this family you and mom made. You were a father to Ed, I know his love for all of you was strong. He told me many times how much influence you had on him. You had a large part of making him the man he was. He didn’t know a fathers love until he met all of you. You taught my kids that blood isn’t what makes a family. You were their grandfather and they will never forget you. I know you will be watching over all of us. I will miss you terribly, your love for all of us will be our strength. Keep Ed in line up there! Love you always!
