  6. Dad, as I sit here writing this I have to continually stop to wipe tears from my eyes. Tears of sorrow mixed with tears of joy. You were the best father I could have ever wished for, and I will miss you desperately. But your in a better place now. In gods loving arms. I will love you forever.

  7. Dad, I already miss you more than I can say. I know your in a better place and I know you can hear me. Remember , when we would go to the Airport Village to eat and we would share lemon tarts for dessert? Well, now you can share one with Jesus. But, remember to leave some for me because one day we will share one together again. All three of us. Love You always!

  10. Well Dad, I’m sitting here writing this and I can’t help but asking myself. What am I going to do now when I need a friend and fathers help? I can’t just come home and see you anymore. I guess I’ll just have to talk to you in my prayers to God. I miss you and I watching all the Baseball, Football and Basketball games and watching you cheer for the opposite team just to goad me on. I miss your smile and hugs, but most of all I miss spending time with you. I love you with all my heart.

  11. Thank God Joe is with the Lord happy and free. My prayers are with you in this hard time. God doesn’t give us more than we can handle. Look up and feel His presence. God Bless, Love , Joe

  12. Dear Great Grandpa, Once I had found out you had passed, I cried and cried and cried. I couldn’t handle you were going to be gone forever. But then, I thought to myself you wouldn’t want me crying so I stopped and also realized you were in a better place. I will always miss how you always told me that god loves me as you did too. And how you told me I love you forever. I love you forever and you will always be in my heart. Tell god hello for me. -Noel, your neita

  16. Gramps, You’ve always been my main man from start to finish. At every game, picked me up from school, and taught me things my own father didn’t even teach me. Without you, I would have been entirely lost. Thank you for your genuine love and wisdom that you bestowed upon my life. I think about you every second and know deep down that our bond is irreplaceable. I promise I will take care of Grams, through thick and thin . Your my Fred Estair. I’ll be seeing you. FOREVER AND ALWAYS, Amber

  17. Dearest Grandpa, I miss you so much! I think the world of you! You are the kindest, gentlest, and most loving man that a family could ask for! My heart stops when I think I can not hold your hand anymore. You have held my hand for so many years during my life, always trying to make me smile and laugh! I miss your tender voice telling me you will love me “for always and forever!” I hope you have heard my prayers…I have been praying so much now! I know that when Lexy died the day after you did, I picture you holding her in your arms! And…Don’t you worry, I will be there for my Grandma too! I will hold her hand just like you held mine! Stay in the arms of Jesus and the angels, Grandpa!! I believe I will see your face first when God calls upon me one day! You will be my angel guiding me home! I will love you always and forever! ~Jeanette

  18. Grampy, As every day goes by I miss you more and more. I keep thinking that the morning after I fall asleep I’ll wake up and be able to go over to your house and see you and hold your hand as tight as I could, never wanting to let go, like we did before you left this earth. You’re the most amazing man I have ever known. Everything about you from ur handsom looks to your indefinite love for your family and friends. You will absolutely never be forgotten. Each night I lay in bed and make sure that you are the last thing I think of before I fall asleep so that while I’m dreaming I can spend just a few more moments with you. It’s just like I told you; go to sleep so you can create your own serene reality and be at peace. Now that you’re in an endless sleep you’ll always be happy and we can be together forever, each night that I go to bed until we meet again. My heart feels incomplete without your presence. But I know you’ll always be here in my heart and watching over me. I’m living my life for you from this moment forth. Everything I do, I’m doing it for you; to make you proud. You’ve had a tremendous inpact on my life as well as many others. I will never forget all the things you tought me about life, love, and myself. I love you with every beat of my aching heart, always and forever Grampy! Love, Mandy
