      It’s been over a year since you’ve been gone. It’s been hard without you. JJ and I always talk about you and how you’ve made us happy. We miss your laugh and your stories and I promise we will fulfill your wish in spreading your ashes in Delbarton and Logan. We love you. You’ve earned your rest, Peepaw.

    I remember so many things about you. So many memories…driving to the Canadian border just to turn around, going to Discovery Zone and Old Country buffet by surprise. Your jokes, your stories, your laugh….I can’t pick just one. I miss you, dad. I love you.
