“My MR B, my LOVE,”

Our saying “Forever and a Day” will always be our saying.  I miss you so much, and my heart hurts from the pain.  The tears I shed are for our loss of you in my life and others.  You will be missed, my Best Friend, my Lover, my Life!  I know that you are now pain-free and at peace, and that comforts me.  I will feed the hummingbirds in the spring and keep an eye out for your squirrels.  I will ask for help when I need it and help others when I can, just like you would.  The fishing world will miss your spirit and singing on the lake.  Your International Brotherhood of Electrical workers will miss your knowledge and leadership.  You have touched so many lives and I’m the lucky one that you were mine.  We had so many ‘firsts’ in our wonderful life.  We laughed and said “I Love You” every day.  I love you, my love!

Forever and a Day!  Love, Kiki

To My Dad,

You will be missed so much; I hope you know.  How dare they tell me that you’re gone and your voice I’ll never hear.  But I have you so deeply rooted in my heart that I always feel you near when I’m lost and don’t know what to do.   It’s your voice I’ll hear, and you’ll tell me to just look inside myself and remember I’m a lot like you.  It’s been an honor to be your son.  We’ve shared a lifetime of dreams, and I’ll always have your love and strength.  No matter how tough this seems, I know you’re up there fishing with that solid gold rod and reel with the biggest smile no one could steal, just munching on your favorite candy.

I’ll always love you. Your Son Randy
