    Dad, missing you. My mind is having a hard time accepting you’re no longer here with us. I also know you missed grandma and the pain you suffered because you didn’t want to leave us. My heart hurts Dad. I didn’t want to see you in pain. My heart still hurts Dad. I’m happy for you and the celebration our beloved family had for you when you arrived home. . makes me smile. Love you Dad! Your daughter, Rox

    To the family of Uncle Arnold ” Bommo” I will never forget all the happy times our family shared as we were growing up. I know uncle has prepared all of the ones who are left behind. Uncle was a good man, they don’t make men like him any more. I’m proud to have known him and especially to have had the pleasure of having him in my life. I know what it’s like to lose someone as special as him. My heart goes out to the family.
