Relation: Son

I never wanted the day to come when I was forced to say goodbye, you’ve taught me so many things in life that I will remember forever. You have always been my biggest fan and have displayed pride when I shared what was new in my life at home or at work. You were always proud of what I have accomplished as your smile lit up and you chest pumped out. It breaks my heart to let you go, but I know you will always be with me and continue guiding me from afar. I love you dad and always will……remember, never show them, unless they are willing to pay.

Love you Dad

“To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow”
Dear Dad,
You were my favorite “garden thief” and I will fondly remember your impromptu visits to fill your pockets full of apples and nibble the cherry tomatoes off the vine. I am grateful that I was able to share all the seeds I had planted and nurtured with you in my fall harvests …. You were my greatest garden advocate and you loved my pickles the most!!!!!! but I’m not sure you realize the gift that you gave me in return was the “seeds” and concepts you installed in Tom that I will cherish for eternity. Qualities like putting family first, treating women with respect and not being afraid to show love and affection for those you treasure. These superior characteristics have now been passed down to my daughter and son and I will always honour them in your memory. Because like seeds, a character in a man is genuinely captured in the hearts of those that are only touched by experiencing these attributes, and thus you have planted a seed that will be harvested for many tomorrows to come…………..
Love always Kelley

From: Judy Neale
Relation: wife

My darling husband, I miss you so very much. I am trying my hardess to keep things together and it is so hard. I just miss you. I miss your smile, our talks, watching tv together, holding hands, all our meals sitting at the kitchen table just chatting about anything and everything. I miss your touch, our hugs and kisses. I miss our togetherness.
I truly wish you were here with me, healthy and happy. I need you, Babe. I love you with all my heart and soul. I will love you forever.
Love you, Judy

From: Leslie and Shash Prasad
Relation: friend and family

For the past few weeks we have talked about you often, remembering our cruise’s with you and Judy, the many hockey games we attended to watch our grandkids, the Christmases with the card games, and the summer campfires. They are fond memories which will stay in our hearts forever. You will be missed by so many. God’s speed our friend.
