Dear Dad,
This will be my final entry in your guest book. It has been such a healing experience for all of us to write our heartfelt thoughts to you. To read the letters from the beginning, when the pain of your passing was so raw, to the last few entries, when we have simply expressed the void you have left behind, you can see how we have accepted the fact that we all must pass on and, with the good Grace of God, one day we will all be together again. I can only hope, when my time comes, it will be your face I first touch on the other side. I believe you will always know what is happening in our lives and on occasion, through a soft breeze, a sound or maybe an aroma, we will be reminded that you are always with us. I am so proud and grateful that you were my Dad. Thank you for all you done for me and the wonderful man you were. My love for you is endless and I will miss you always...and Life goes on.

I Love You Dad.

Art (Dad)...Cant believe five years have gone by. We all miss you and I know I speak for everyone. You have been the best father-in-law anyone could have asked for. Grammy is hanging in there, she will always be taken care of. The holiday's are coming up again, and you are always on our minds especially at this time. You left us with so many fond memories. Your laugh, saying "Ruth", all of the wonderful things you made over the years for the kids. All of your help and advice you gave to Sue and myself. Even though I wont be able to write in this Guestbook anymore, there wont be a day that I wont think of you. You will always stay in my heart, a special place in all of our hearts. Thanks for the memories.

Love...Den

Dear Dad,
I knew this day was finally going to come and I really find it very hard to have this book come to an end. This has helped me to keep you alive not only on holidays, but every time I want to talk to you. As I am writing my final entry into your book I realize that I really dont need this anymore because you are with me every minute of everyday in my HEART. I will always have you close to me until we are together again. I am so very lucky to have had such a loving and fun Dad when I was growing up. You and Mom have given me such Wonderful & BEAUTIFUL memories and they are etched in my heart for the rest of my life. I dont think of this as goodbye but I'll see you soon Dad when we are together again. I love you Dad Today, Tomorrow, Forever!!!! Love,
Suzy

This has been a long 5 years. Everyone has missed you and remembered so much about you. We've all been touched with your presence at some point through these years. Although I've been extremely grateful to know you haven't left me completely, its still not the same. I swear I still hear your laugh echoing in the room when family is together having fun, or your whistle when I sit in the living room with Mema watching movies. I know you're with us everyday, but I still miss you so much. There is so much I know you see, but I just want one last chance to look into your eyes and give you a bear hug and tell you I love you. I miss you a lot. You are always in my thoughts, and always will be.
October 17, 2010
Grampy, 5 years has gone so quickly. Each day we all miss you. I talk about you often with Jesse, so he will know all about his Papa. He had fun playing with the puppet theater you made. I love you!!!

October 13, 2010
Dear Dad,
I cant believe it has been 5 years already dad. I miss you just as much today as I did 5 years ago. I was at the house today and gave you a hug. I went down to your work shop and looked around at your things, you made so many special and beautiful things down there. Dad I will always miss you and love you so much. Until we are together again I will think of you everyday!!! Love you forever!

Dear Dad,
Today is a sad milestone. You have been gone for 5 years. It doesn't seem that long, and yet, it seems forever. How I wish you could be here, to be with all of us, to see your all your new great-grand babies. I am taking care of Mom for you. I feel it is my responsibility to give her the best life possible. I can only hope you can see it. I miss you everyday, Dad. I will love you forever.
Hugs and Kisses,
Debbie

Dear Art ~ I just wanted to say what a special person you were. Roger and I always enjoyed you stopping by and having our conversations with you and Ruth. I can see by your guest book how much your family misses you. I know their pain and hurt as my dad's been gone since Jan.1998 and now my mom has passed on Labor Day and the pain and hurt is just an ache that is endless. We have been blessed, your family and mine to have had such wonderful parents who will always be our strength and whom we will always look up too. Take care Art and rest in peace.

Grampy,
Four years sounds so long, yet it feels like your passing was yesterday. I wish you could still be here, and meet your new great-grandkids, and your new grandson-in-law. You and Chad would have gotten along together so well, and he would have loved you so much. Even across the world I think of you every day, and feel as though your presence is around me every so often. I miss you so much, especially your laugh. You will NEVER be forgotten.

Lots of love,
Cailee

Dear Dad,
In a few hours, it will be exactly 4 years since you left us. The pain I feel in my heart is just as fresh as it was that night. I miss you so very much. I hope where ever you are, you are healthy and happy and in the presence of God. I hope you had a chance to be with Conner before he came into the world. And I hope you can see and enjoy all of you great grandchildren. I am sure you would love them all. I miss you Dad. I love you.
Always your daughter,

December 25, 2008
Dear Dad,
As this Christmas day comes to an end, my thoughts turn to you. I remember our Christmas days when we were little and the love you always gave us. I remember you putting our toys together and going to Grams for Christmas dinner. I remember thinking the ride was long and you'd tease me about running out of gas. I will never forget those times.
I thought of you as I made my cutouts, knowing that you would not taste any. I miss you so much. I hope you are happy wherever you are. Keep watching over us. I love you Dad.
Forever your daughter,
Debbie
December 25, 2008

I am thankful today (and everyday) that I had such a loving Dad in my life. You were always a source of strength and security for me. I thank God you were here to know and love my children.

Dad, Another year has come and gone, its hard to believe it has been 3 years since you have left us. Of course you have never really left us because you are still here in our memories of all the wonderful times we spent together,right. I heard a country song early the other morning going to work and it reminded me of our last day together. It was about a Dad telling his daughter its time to let go. I had to let you go Dad but you will never ever be forgotten. There will always be a part of you in my heart forever. I love and miss you so much Dad!! Love Suzy
October 13, 2008
Hi Dad,
Today is three years since you left us. I think of you every day. I had such an urge to talk to you just before the Sabres started the first game of the season. I wanted to share the excitement. I hope you see the games. I wish my grandbabies could know you. I wish I had just one picture of you with them. They are such a joy in my life. They would have made you smile.
You will always be in my heart. You are in the fabric of my being. I love you Dad.
Your daughter,
Debbie

Merry Christmas Dad. I made the cookies this year, but without you here, it just felt like another Christmas chore I needed to do. I always looked forward to handing that big box to you.

You are in my heart forever.

Just a note to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Dad. I thank the Lord for giving me such a good father and letting me have many wonderful years with you.

Forever your daughter... Deb
PS... I see you everytime I look into Ryan and Maries beautiful blue eyes!
November 06, 2007
Grampy,
Thank you. You were right, I had nothing to worry about. I needed to hear you say that. And she IS so beautiful, just like you said she would be, but you already knew that. I miss you a lot. I don't usually write since you occasionally visit, but I really miss you when I start getting into the holiday spirit. Marie's getting baptized soon, I would've loved for you to have been there, to hold her and see her very beautiful blue eyes. They aren't as blue as yours, but I always think of you when I look deep into them. I miss you terribly. Love always, Cheri
October 14, 2007
Hi Art (Dad),

October 13, 2007
Grampy, I can't believe it has been two years without you already, I think about you every day. I miss your laugh your smile you calling me kiddo, tasting all your latest recipes and so much more. I am very proud to have named our baby after you Griffin Arthur (Grammy loves it). The other day we were watching Garrett's baby video and all the sudden you were there, holding Garrett and you said "So you have finally met the old grouch". When I seen it I sarted crying right away but it was more of a happy cry. It was nice to see you and hear your voice again, that is what keeps us strong all the fond memories we have of you, until we meet again someday. We love and miss you! Mel,keith,Garrett,Daylon And baby Griffin Arthur!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
October 12, 2007
Dear Dad,
Unbelievably, it's been two years since you left us. The emptiness I feel is just as strong today as it was when I said goodbye to you. I miss you so much. But, life goes on. Mom is well taken care of, but you knew you didn't have to worry about that. All the new babies are beautiful and healthy, with another one on the way. It was a surprise to us, but not to you. I wish so much to hear your voice, talk about the Sabres and Bills, feel that wonderful bear hug. I guess I will just have to wait awhile. I'm not in a hurry though. Too many grandbabies to play with! I just wanted to let you know how much you are loved and missed.
I Love You Dad.... Debbie

April 22, 2007
Hey Grampy.
So much has been going on lately, but not one day goes by that I forget to think about you. Especially all last week, when I found one of my old Jazz tapes. Listening to it made me think of how proud you were of me and how I could hear you over everyone else in the crowd. If I could go back to one of the few happy moments in my life, it would probably be right after a huge solo, watching you in the front row freaking out and beaming, which you always did, probably more than I was.
I miss and love you. Hope all is well up there.

April 21, 2007
Hi Dad,
Go Sabres! One series down, three more to go! More than ever I wanted to call you last night. I wanted to hear the excitement in your voice, hear your laughter and share in your hope that "this is our year". I miss you more than ever. Keep watching over us, especially your new great grandbabies.
I Love You Dad.... Debbie
April 19, 2007
Hi Dad,

Happy Valentines Day Dad. I miss you so much. Time is flying by, but it seems like yesterday that you left us. But then again, I don't believe you ever really left us. I know you had a little time with Ryan before he was sent here. He is adorable, isn't he? I am sure you know exactly who he is and who he'll become, as you know about the other two babies on the way. Keep watching over all of us. The Sabres are unbelievable and I imagine you are somewhere in the crowd at every game. You would be so proud of them. I just wanted to tell you how much you are loved on this Valentines Day. Love you always, Debbie

Hi Dad. Happy Thanksgiving. It was a very busy day for me but you were never far from my thoughts. How I wish I could hear your voice again. The other night, when the Sabres won AGAIN, I wanted so badly to call you on the phone to talk about them. Sometimes, still, it is so hard to believe you are gone.Well, I just wanted to send my love your way today, and Thank you for everything you done for me...I miss you and I'll Love you forever..Debbie
November 23, 2006
Dad, Well another Thanksgiving is here and you are still so very missed by all of us. Iwill have a candle lit by your picture like i ususally do and think of you smiling down upon us as we have dinner. I want you to know you are the lucky one where you are no worries or problems just peace and happiness. I do look forward to joining you some day in that beautiful place called heaven. I just want to be an angel and sit on a cloud and read a book. I hope you like the new sabers hat i put on you. I dont know if you really liked the new yellow, but when i seen it dad i thought of you right away. Thank you for helping me through this last year. I know in my heart being with you when you left has made better because a part of you stayed with me and i can feel your presence everyday. I just really miss the signs, if you could give me a few once in a while it would make me happy. I miss you today and always Dad, you are forever with me. I love you until we are together again!!!!!!! Love, Suzy

Dear Dad, It has been a little over a year since you left us, im sorry I couldnt enter this on Friday October 13 but we had no power for a few days,but I spent some time with you on Oct.13 when we were over helping Mom. She has done really well during the whole storm. With her lights out and the basement flooded she held up great. We cleaned out the basement and man you were right she has alot of junk. She was swearing that she should of let you buy the generator after all. We are with her almost everyday and will always be there for her. Friday with all the weather problems kept her mind off of your death. The one nice thing about the whole storm was I got 6 PAYED days off, yes you know that. And the first one I said Ha-Ha to was you Dad. I know what you were thinking,im calling that goddamn school!!!!!!! Well Just wanted to know you are always with me and I will never forget your smiling face Dad, I love you always!!!! Suzy
October 13, 2006
whats up dude!!!! Just wanted top stop by and say hello and we miss ya!!!! We love ya Grampy!!!!

Thanks for watching over us...
October 12, 2006
Dear Dad,
Exactly one year ago today, a ray of hope filled my heart as you seemed to be recovering from you ordeal. Your beautiful blue eyes were crystal clear and you mouthed my name when you seen me. You wiggled your toes when asked to do so and you shook your head "yes" when I asked you if you wanted to go home. When Mom walked into the room you said her name. It was the last word I would ever hear you say. I left your room confident that we would have a little more time together, but God had other plans. I am very grateful for those few minutes of awareness we shared.
It has been a year of ups and downs, but through it all, I know you were there for us. I hope you greeted Lady as she crossed over and I hope you danced at Charlies wedding. I know you held and loved your new "great grandbabies" before the Lord sent them down to their moms and dads. I like to think you already know who they are and what path in life they will follow. I especially hope where ever you are, time has no meaning and this past year has been nothing but a blink of your beautiful blue eyes.
You are on my mind and in my heart every moment of every day. I will miss you always and love you forever.
I Love You Dad.
Your Daughter,
Debbie
October 11, 2006
Art--(Dad), Almost a year has passed since you left us. You are so sorely missed by all. Grammy is doing well and we watch over her all the time. Wish you were here, the Holidays are near, the Bills and the Sabres are in full swing, and you would love to see them. But whereever you are you are rooting them on!! I will be here for Grammy and the family forever.

Dear Dad,
I just needed to wish you a "Happy Easter" today. It was a beautiful day and, as always, you were in my thoughts. I wish you were here. I was looking for my cookbook this morning and the folder of pictures you printed out for me fell out of the cupboard. Inside was the picture of you when you were 2 years old, the one with the bunny on the wicker chair. I put it into a frame and have it included in my Easter display. It makes me smile, I love that picture. Keep watching over us. We all miss you very much. You're forever in my heart...I Love You.
Your daughter,
Debbie

Happy Easter Dad I wish you were here today to go out with all of us for easter dinner. I know you will be watching over us with your big smile. I remember when we were little all dressed up in our pretty dresses and pat and leather shoes,easter bonet,pures and gloves. We had wonderful easters when we were little, thank you so much for all my beautiful memories you have left with me. I thank god for having such a fantastic childhood. I was really lucky to have such wonderful parents who gave me alot of love and attention all my life. I send all my love to you Dad on this Easter Sunday and everyday until we are together again.
Love Always,

Hi Dad,
It is hard to believe but today is exactly 6 months (to the day) that you left us and touched the face of God. I hope wherever you are, time has no meaning. We are all being strong and carrying on, especially for Moms sake. She has a few new things in her life to give her faith and hope in the future. With our love and encouragement, she is doing very well. I promised you she would be taken care of and I hope we are making you proud. Keep watching over us. We all love you.
All my Love,
Debbie

Today was a beautiful sunny day, and it was also a very special day for our family. We sent you signed red,white and blue ballons to celebrate your Birthday! We stood in front of Moms trailer and sent them up to you. We all love and miss you so much and I know you are there watching over us. We all got the your sign today the 11 cents you left in your coat pocket. That was so cool keep leaving us the signs we all look forward to them. I know or should i say we all know that you were there with us today. I love and miss you Dad, until next time!
Love,Suzy

You may not be here with us tangibly, but we know you're up in iced sugar cookie heaven.

Happy 78th Birthday, Grampy. I love you.

<3 Cailee
February 21, 2006
Dear Dad,
Today would be your 78 birthday. You would be proud of me becaused this time I really remembered the right date. I would always try to guess every year is dads birthday on the 21 or the 22. Dad I have had you on my mind all day wishing I could call you and wish you a Happy Birthday,but I cant this year. I know you are watching all of us and you know how muched you are loved and missed. I keep you so close to my heart and keep a candle lit by your picture in the kitchen everyday. I want to thank you for helping me deal with your death. You have kept me strong by letting me take care of Mom and all your bills. Again I feel that you are part of my soul, being there when you slipped away from us makes me feel that you continue to live through me. I have never felt so close to you and I will never be scared to die because I know you are now in a better place. I will always be there for Mom until the day she joins you. Now I know why you would say RUTH, she can drive me nuts sometimes,but She is a keeper. I want to wish you a Happy Birthday Dad, if they have birthdays in heaven and I want you to remember how much I love you and miss you forever until we are together again. Keep watching over me so I will always feel safe and continue to give me signs because I look forward to them.
I LOVE YOU!!
Suzy

February 21, 2006
Grampy, Happy Birthday, This is really hard,I don't want to be typing this today,I want to be at your house with you celebrating your birthday, I miss you more than words can say, I never thought it would be so hard, I never lost anyone close. I feel you with me though and that makes me feel better. I feel heartbroken for Grammy, she says the hardest thing to do is get rid of your clothes and she is crying she says I know it sounds crazy but what if he comes home and then he has nothing to wear. Poor Grammy, she misses you so much. Grampy, I think about you everyday, I wish today more than anything, I could be with you to give you a hug and kiss and tell you I love you, and say Happy Birthday. We Love You! Mel,Keith,Garrett And Daylon p.s. look for our balloons.

Dear Art, (Grampy)

Its your birthday. and four months since you left. We all do miss you and love you very much. Ruth seems to be doing quite well, we all take good care of her. Sue and Debbie are very thoughtful daughters for they call and are constantly doing things with their mom. DJ and Gina have left for Las Vegas and start their new careers out west, we talk to them often and they are fine. Everyone else is doing well. Sure wish you were here so we could celebrate your birthday with you. I know that cant be, but we will forever have you in our memories. You are never forgotton. Hey when you see Gram tell her I have always missed her delicious salmon patties, boy they were so good. So long for now, and Happy Birthday to you.

Always a Son,
Love Den

February 14, 2006
Dad,
I just needed to let you know, on this Valentines Day, how much you are loved. I miss you.
Love, Debbie
February 13, 2006
Grampy,
Exactly one year ago tomorrow we spent about 3 hours talking while you were sitting in your hospital bed. The only thing worse, to me, than you being in the hospital on Valentines day, was you having to sit there alone. You kept trying to assure me that I should spend the night with my boyfriend at the time, who was mad at me for not thinking of just him that day, and I kept telling you, that you were more important. The nurses were so nice that day, letting me stay nearly an hour past visiting hours. We talked about everything that night. From when you were young to what I should do with my life. You said to me "I'm proud of you kiddo, keep up the good work" and I've been trying so hard to fight to succeed just to show you what I can do. I can feel you with me sometimes. When times get really rough there usually seems to be a little break in the stress, if only for a moment where I swear I can hear your melodic whistling. And no matter what happens next I know I can get through it because you're on my side. So, all I can seem to do this year is wish you were still around to spend another Valentines Day by your side. I miss you so much.
January 04, 2006
Grampy,

The holidays were tough without you. I woke up early on Christmas morning and stayed in bed thinking. Tears filled my eyes as I thought about Grammy waking up alone on Christmas morning. But I kept on thinking and I realized that you would be with her in spirit and that we would be with her as well.

It is so hard to accept that you are gone forever. I regret that I did not chat longer with you during that last phone call, or hold you tighter for our last hug.

But then I know you heard and felt me when I held your hand that last night in the hospital and whispered in your ear "I love you Grampy"

One of my favorite memories with you is the silly notes I would leave you and Grammy after each trip to the cottage. You both always got a kick out of that. I'd summarize the weekend and joke around. And all my old notes were always there, behind the note pad. I feel like I am doing that again right now. I hope you still like it.

Love,
Melissa
December 31, 2005
Dear Dad,
In a few hours, we will turn the page of time. In a way, I don't want the New Year to come. I feel I am leaving you behind. Thank you for bringing me into the world fifty one years ago today. I loved having you for my Dad. And thank you for the beautiful birthday gift. It means the world to me, knowing you picked it out. I think you were always amazed at all "my hummers". I will think of you whenever they are around. You are in my heart always. I love you and miss you. Happy New Year.
Your Loving Daughter,
Debbie
December 25, 2005
Dear Dad,
Today is Christmas. It has been very hard to get into the spirit this year. Putting up holiday decorations was like swimming through mud but I finally got through it. Making the cookies was the hardest, but I am sure you were with me for every cookie I cut, baked and iced. I gave each one of my kids a porcelain snowflake ornament to be put on their Christmas trees in memory of you. They all cried.
I cannot describe the pain of losing you, but I think you know how I feel. I thank you for your "signs" of reassurance that you are among us. Sue, Mom and I laugh about the "little things" you do and we know your are laughing along with us. I want to especially thank you for the picture you "found" of you sitting at my kitchen table with the cup of coffee in your hand. I never would have found it, and by the grin on your face, you knew I would be surprised.
Well, I just wanted to let you know on this special day, how much you are loved and missed. I Love You Dad. Merry Christmas.
Your daughter,
Debbie
December 20, 2005
Dear Art(Dad),

Well its December 20th, five days before Christmas and how we all do miss you. We just made cookies a couple of days ago our yearly tradition. Sue was just saying how she feels you are close by and she doesent feel an emptiness. I guess that is a good thing. Grammy seems to be doing well. I know we all have days where we may dwell on you not being around. You are never forgotton. I go back to when I frist met Sue and your Christmasses were so much fun, and they always have been since I have been a part of them. So as the big day approaches, my present to you is what I have said before I will always be there for Grammy and the rest of the family. I will be thinking of you often during the Holiday season, and I know you arent far away. I will kiss the grandkids for you and great-grandchildren also. Bye-for-now.

Forever a son, Den
November 24, 2005
Dad,
Today is Thanksgiving. I couldn't let this day go by without talking to you. I still can't believe you are gone. I miss you so much. I dreaded this holiday knowing it would be the first. It has been a rough few days. I needed to write and let you know how thankful I am that you are my Dad. You will live on in my heart forever. I love you....Deb
November 24, 2005
Dad
I finally got the courage to write in your book, I wanted to so many times but I guess I just dont want to accept that you are gone. Today is Thanksgiving and it will be very difficult with out you sitting at the table, but I know you are here with me because I can feel you. I have your picture with a candle on top of my frig. so you will not be far from my heart today and always. Dad keep me strong for Mom I am trying my hardest to fill your shoes, and I give Thanks to you today for trusting me to do that.I will help Mom get through today and everyday until we are all together again. I love you so much Dad and miss you every minute of every day.

Love,Suzy
November 17, 2005
Dear Sue--Debbie--Art--Doug--Grammy

I write this note to let you all know I will always be there for you. I am especially feeling very close to Grammy. And that will never change. If its a Tim Hortons coffee run, talking about an old movie, a phone call or just anything at all, I will be there for Grammy. I look forward to talking and spending time with Grammy. She is very special to me. My own mother died 39 years ago this past October 28, and I still do miss her. However I do love to spend time with grammy and I do consider her a second mother to me. And Art I know you are looking down without a care in the universe knowing Grammy is being looked after. I do miss you Art, but I know you are in good hands, and say hello to Gram-Pop and Uncle Ed. By the way the Bills won last Sunday. They area 500 team but they are hanging in there. Just all of us hanging in there. Thanksgiving is around the corner, I will miss you and the food you always put on your plate, it was always the same Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. Nothing more, nothing less. I always kidded you that you always ate the same, food items, never wavered. Just a little thing that I wont see anymore but I will always have my memories. Memories, that is no one take from us. And like I said in the begining, I intend to make new memories with my second mother. I will always be there for Grammy and this whole family.

Forever a Son
Dennis
November 15, 2005

Grammy is doing good,we are all taking good care of her. thanks mom for keeping this open for another year. I think it is a great way for everone to express their feelings. I love you so much Grampy, Love Mel
November 14, 2005
Grampy,
In the past month, family gatherings were just not the same without your unique laugh and bright smile. Although we aren't able to see you, we know you're with us always, and we love you dearly. I miss you big guy. I love you. Although it was the saddest day of my life thus far..It will be a joyous moment when we all get to be together again. Watch over us and help us in time of need -- you were good at that anyways. Love you! I feel better knowing I held your hand and had the chance to tell you I loved you the night you passed away.

Don't worry about Mema. We've got her covered. She's in good hands with us... Lots of love always!

Your loving granddaughter...

November 13, 2005
Dad,
Today is exactly one month since you left. Seems like forever. You have shown all of us, in your own special way, that you are still here with us. We all thank you for that. Sue has done a wonderful job getting everything in order. I know you are so proud of her. Mom had the option to fade away or blossom. With our love and attention she chose to blossom. You know we will always be there for her. The upcoming holidays will be especially hard, but with our love for one another, we will endure. I know that when we are together you are happy. We all love you, miss you and carry your love in our hearts. You will always be the most loved Dad, Grampy and Papa. May you rest in peace in Heaven, until we are together again.
Our Love Forever,
Your Family
November 01, 2005
Grampy,
I just got back from a gathering at Melissa's house, and I have to let you know.
I am so glad you lived long enough to see your family reunited. That's enough to let anyone sleep peacefully.

Love ya punk.
<3 Cailee
October 21, 2005
Grampy,

Its Saturday 12:18am. I just was driving home from Gina's and began to think about you. I was thinking about how the WHOLE family was together for the first time in ages. I know your watching us and I can see your smile, I can hear your laugh. I can honestly say that I even feel your presence.

I will never, ever forget the last time that we spent together. You Grammy and I in the hospital room. We laughed that WHOLE time. I hope for that hour and 45 mins were painless to you, because it was painfull for me to see you hurting, but I had to keep everything calm, and it went so well.

Thats how we will keep grammy. Altough its painfull to go through this situation, the WHOLE family will keep things calm.

Keep the WHOLE family under your wing grampy, we need your laugh in our tears, we need your smile in our hearts.

You were a great man,you had a great wife,family,and friends. We will miss you dearly. And I know that when we all must go, you will be right beside us once again, and at that time the family will once again be WHOLE.

Love you grampy

October 21, 2005
I came across this beautiful saying and I wanted to share it with all of you, it is called

THE BROKEN CHAIN

We little knew that morning, that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

We all love you and miss you, but know we will be togeather again, until then we love you Grampy.
October 20, 2005
Grampy,

Today was your Memorial Service. The military ceremony was excellent and well deserved. Everyone had beautiful memories to share. I sat in my seat, knowing what I wanted to say, but feeling far too emotional to speak the words.

I remembered the past year when I was pregnant with Jesse. I was seeing the doctor biweekly because of the high risk of my pregnancy. You always knew when I had an appointment and called me every day, without fail, to ask me how it went. That meant so much to me and I looked forward to your calls. I am so glad Jesse got to spend at least 3 months with his "Papa".

The night before you went in for your scope you called me from the ICU. I did not know that it would be the last time I would talk to you. We chatted about the baby, the hospital and things. I'll never forget how the call ended. You said: "Love ya, kid."

Love ya, Grampy!
October 20, 2005
Dad,
To paraphrase you.. "it's only me" again. How I wish I could hear those words once more. It has been exactly one week since you passed away. It seems like a lifetime.

Today will be the toughest. We talked about it often and I always said "there is a day and time for all of us". Yours came too soon. But instead of mourning your death today, I feel we need to celebrate your life.

You were the strength and security in our life. As a little girl, I felt "all was right in the world" when you were there. You would take care of everything. You always laid on the floor to watch tv and we would climb all over you. You were the one who taught me not to be ticklish on my feet. How I love foot massages today. You were always playful. I especially remember all the swimming we did and you throwing us into the pool. We squealed with delight, asking for more. I remember when you would flash me a glance of disapproval, I would cry, knowing I disappointed you in some way. But it wouldn't last long. I always knew you loved me.

I won't forget you walking me down the aisle, on my wedding day. As the wedding march began and you knew the tears were going to flow, you looked at me and said "Smile!". Just looking at your face made me laugh and I didn't cry. At my reception, you danced with me and that DID make me cry, because I knew you didn't dance. You were always there for me.

I remember you being the mailman on Howard Rd. when we lived there. How cool it was having you in for coffee everyday. I remember you handing me all those checks from Ford, asking if I were expecting a "windfall" and how my hands shook as you took delight in counting out the envelopes one by one. The memories go on and on.

Your talent with woodworking was a gift from God. All you needed was the vision and it would become reality. My creativity comes from you, as do my blue eyes and o- negative blood. I thank you for all you have given me.

We really became close the past few years. I chatted with you on the phone almost on a daily basis. How I wish I could talk with you one more time.

The last time you came over, while I was showing Mom something, you took a walk outside. As I was talking to her, I glanced out the door and seen you sitting on the picnic table, watching the horses and looking around. How I wish I would have taken the time to sit with you. I wonder if you knew it would be the last time you would see it all.

I stayed by your side in the hospital not only for your sake but for mine. I needed to be there for you, just as you were always there for me. I hope you knew you were not alone.

As difficult as today will be, I take comfort in knowing that you will finally be coming home. Although I know you are alive in paradise, I will miss you everyday, for the rest of my life.

"I Love You Dad"

Your grateful daughter,
Debbie

Years ago I met a few guys that became my brothers, along with them I aquired some extra parents. Mr.& Mrs. Z are 2nd parents to me. I will never forget the times Mr.Z "chased" us out of the basement. My heart aches for the loss. Yet it is not for us to keep things that don't belong to us. God called for Mr.Z and he willingly accepted. No more pain. I love all of you and I am thankful for the memories that I shared with you. Here is to many more. God Bless

Grampy,

Holidays,the cottage, Birthdays, or just that random visit to your house or ours, was always a great time. It wasn't until I became older that I really knew who my grandfather was. You were a humorous man, our relationship was one that I will cherrish for the rest of my life. I couldn't have asked for a better set of grandparents.

While your watching from where you are, you can count on US to keep good care of grammy, because we know you will keep good care of US.

I love you with all my heart, And we will meet again, for a laugh.

Your Grandson

Hopefully theres no rubber gloves where you are.... ;)

Dear Art (Dad),

I cant say enough about your life and how you touched me personally. I remember the day I married Sue, you and I had a heart to heart talk and you welcomed me into your family officially. You have always been there for Sue and myself and the kids. I remember your laugh, smile, and your stories about the service. They were so funny. Your growing up in Lackawanna, stories of Gram and Pop. I will never forget you, and you will always be in my thoughts. Thank you for being the best father-in law anyone could ever want. I know you are sitting right next to Gram and Pop right now working on some woodworking project. And Grammy has nothing to worry about we will all be there for her. I miss you and love you dearly.

Forever Thankful, Den

Grampy,
Jazz concerts, Wind Ensemble concerts, graduation, wedding, my first child. All these and more are milestone events that I would have done anything to see you be a part of. It's hard to put into words how your passing away has made me feel. Part of me is regretful: guilty of the times I hung up the phone too fast or was sleeping when you left my house. I would have done anything just to say goodbye to you one more time. But another part of me is happy: happy because you heard me say goodbye. Happy because your suffering has ended. Happy because now I know you'll be at every one of those events in my life, when before physical boundaries held you back.
I'll never forget you spitting your teeth at me, Grampy, or how you would make me glow when you'd whisper to my mom about how hilarious I'd be. Or, how we used to punch and pick on each other all the time.

I love you, Grampy. I think about you every day and I always will.

<3 Cailee

Dear Aunt Ruth, Debbie, Charlie, Susie, Dennis, Doug, & Art -

We were so sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Bud. In reading the obituary, I'm amazed at how the Zubler family has grown over the years. In reading the entries in this guest book, I too fondly remember Uncle Bud's great laugh and love of life. I also remember how he'd love to get Grammie all fired up when we would all be up at the cottage putting the dock in or out for the season.

Perhaps Uncle Bud is in a better place now, not having to deal with the pain and disability anymore of the illness the plagued him later in life. Perhaps seeing Grammie, Pop, and my dad . . .hopefully not having to share a room and fight about how the room is organized!!

Our love to you all and deepest sympathies.

Love, Rena, Rick, Blake & Kayla Flovin

To Art's Family, I am very sorry for your loss. Art was a good man, I worked with him at the USPS.

Grandpa,

Every summer, I would stand at the end of the driveway, gazing up and down the street in hopes that I would see the white mailtruck. Pure excitement would come over me as I heard the tone of your whistle as the mailtruck slowly approached. That smile accompanied with your laughter were the little things that I looked forward to most.

Who can forget the long rides home in that old van, with you laughing in the front while gramma and I played in the back. The "Last Boat Ride" was the most famous ride of all.....you never laughed so hard as I screamed in fear that the boat would tip over. How you could get so much enjoyment out of my screams I will never know.

The love that we shared was comforting, and as we became older, our adventures turned into hugs...hugs that will last a lifetime, hugs that I will never let go..These are the memories you gave me that made me who I am, and they are memories that I will never forget.

I am proud of you grandpa, proud of everything you have accomplished, and I am thankful that I have had such a wonderful person in my life.

Love You Always,
Your Grandson

There was a time I remember, when you took flying lessons in a glider. I have never recalled seeing you so exuberant and alive. You were so proud of your accomplishment and glistened with delight when relating stories of your glider flights. You wore that pride with your soaring club jacket wherever you went. You were both scared and anxious when the time came for your solo flight. Nothing but nothing was going to talk you out of it. I told you: "You're nuts."

You did fly solo once. You started with unknown anticipations. Then, your heart was tickled as you glided through the heavens and gazed upon the view before you with a childlike vision. You were immersed in its beauty and in its tranquility. You were in awe of its boundlessness and of its majesty.

Now, at this time, I truly believe that you are in awe once again. Gliding and soaring effortless once again. Through the same beauty and majesty as before, but this time, you are not aloneā€¦.

My Grampy was a wonderful man. I will never forget all the fun times and laughter. He lived a full life and did so many things. I am so proud that he was my grandfather. I love you Grampy!

Dad,
I held your hand as you slipped away, feeling your soul enter into paradise. I imagined you taking a deep refreshing breath of heavenly air. Seeing the truth and goodness of everything. And feeling the ultimate Love of God. I know your reunion was joyous with those that have gone before you and you are watching over us until our own passing. I will miss you every day until I see you again. I love you..Your Daughter, Debbie
