  1. Grandpa, words cannot express how much I miss you. You always were my biggest supporter, and I could always count on you to make me smile and laugh at the end of a long day. Taking care of you at the end of your life was the biggest blessing and honor I could have had. I hope you realize how much I love you, and how my heart will never be whole as long as you’re gone. I will always carry you in my heart, and I know you will be by my side for the rest of my life. I’ll be holding your hand walking on the stage in May for my diploma.

    I love you always and forever,
    Jessica (Nurse Kelly)

  • Dad,
    I am so happy that I was able to be a part of your life and come to know you as such a great man. You have given back to me a father that I lost nearly 8 years ago. I cherish the times we shared as a family and embrace the closeness that grew stronger through the times spent together. You loved having pizza fritte, BBQ, grilling, sitting out on the deck, talking and reminiscing about “The good old days” and being fond of the simple things in life. I’ll miss sharing with you about just the little things about our daily lives. It hurts me and I’m saddened by your loss. It’s hard for me to express into words, but I know you are now at rest and in peach with God, and as I wait to see you again, I know you will always be in my thoughts and prayers until that day comes. I am truly honored to be a part of your family.
    Thanks for the good times Dad! God bless.

  • Andy,
    After almost 59 years we spent together, It’s hard to think of my life without you. You were a devoted husband, and a great father. It is going to be hard to go on without you, but I know you are in God’s hands, free of pain and suffering. Words cannot express how much I love you. Someday I will be with you again, but in the meantime, watch over all of us like you did all these years. In my heart, I will always remember the great times we had together, and I will never forget you.

    I love you, Andy.
