    We are going to miss you, but we know you are in a better place. We regret not being able to see you recently, however your love & memories will always be in our hearts & in our minds.

Our thoughts & prayers are with the family & friends whom will sadly miss you!!
    We Love You Grandpa!

  2. Uncle Dean was my pool shooting special Uncle. I will miss him very very much. He will be in my thoughts and prayers for ever, until we meet again to shoot pool. Marcia

  3. I love you Dad. We spent a lot of years to get to where we were when you were taken from me and all the family. You were someone special thats for sure. You knew our hearts and our minds. You led us well. I thank you for all that you gave to me, (the love, the training, the nurturing). All that I am I owe to you and Mom. Thanks for our memories and your love. The eye of the eagle will always be there for you and for us. Things will never be the same without you. You are now at peace. I look forward to someday being reunited with you in heaven. I love you Dad.

  4. I loved my grandpa very much. I just wish I could have visited him more. He was a very funny man and I will never forget how even through his hard times, and being in the hospital, he never lost his sense of humor! I will always remember my grandpa for the good. Whenever I see an eagle, I will know he is watching over me. I love you grandpa!

  5. My Dad…The teacher of Good And Bad, Wrong and Right,all I am today is Thanks to my Dad and how I was raised. He was not always an easy man to get along with but a very respected man by all, mostly myself. He will always be remembered as the avid hunter and master fisherman…he could catch fish from a mud puddle and always seemed to find his game animals no matter what it was he was hunting for. It was not the luck as most think, but the skill taught to him by his father, which in turn was taught to James and myself…he was just better at it..that’s all. I will miss my Daddy dearly but the things that I will cherish most that can never be taken away from are the memories we have made over our lifetime together…My God that’s powerful. Love to my Dad as he is in the ever lasting resting place looking over us all and protecting us and giving us guidance. The eye of the Eagle will be his eyes and ours to watch over each other.

    I Love You Dad,
    Ray
