  1. Tribute to my Dad As sad as this day is for me, deep in my heart, as it’s never easy to lose someone you love, I choose to remember so many good memories of you and times spent with you. My fond memories of my dad are of when I was just a little boy always wanting to be with my Dad working with him on whatever he was doing. I remember always making sure to have my red rag in my pocket when I went to work with him because that’s what I saw him do and I wanted to help and be like him. I always felt like I was a big man just being a little boy and being able to work alongside my Dad and learning from him as we went along on many jobs together. The one thing that always sticks with me is the patience he taught me as we worked together. That’s one thing I have carried with me to this very day. The art of patience. I don’t give up on finding the problem. I figure it out, with patience, and get the job done, whatever it may be. It has been so valuable to me. It has taken me far in my life in many ways and for that I have thanked him for and continue to hold it dear. I’ll never forget you Dad for the patience you taught me that has been so valuable to me throughout my life. I remember the story he often told me, with pride, of how he was on his way to California to pursue a career in underwater welding and stopped in San Antonio, on his way to California, met my mother, Elizabeth, affectionately known as “Liz” and she was SO stunningly beautiful he no longer had a desire to go to California because he was so captivated by her and he fell in love with her. They married and together they created 6 children. Sadly we lost one of our sisters, Lizzy, at a very young age but the rest of the siblings created a bond between us that cannot be broken. The ties that bind through love, hurt, forgiveness and the will to move forward. I find the bond rather awesome. Never matters how far apart we are at times the love is always what binds each of our hearts together. As we were growing up, you and Mom taught us to love each other in spite of what we had or didn’t have and today we still have that love for each other and to us, as siblings, that is the greatest lesson we learned and have, and to me, the greatest gift anyone can have is love for each other. We will carry that on Dad. I remember your visits to Nassau and how my children thought you were so funny and wonderful. We had great times on each of your visits and have fond memories that we will hold dear forever in our hearts. I can never thank my siblings enough for being with you around the clock in your time of need… a time that I couldn’t be there because of distance yet my thoughts, prayers and love were always with you. Today, I’m saddened that you went too soon. My heart is broken yet your memory lives on forever in my heart and the hearts of my family and siblings and their families. I love you Dad and will forever carry your memory in my heart. Rest In Peace. I know without a doubt that you are with our Lord, seeing Him face to face and that is my greatest comfort. I will see you again Dad! With all my love, Mike

  2. My Grandfather was a great person. Full of love, laughter and knowledge. I remember going to the shop and working with him washing parts and sitting on his couch he had there and just laughing. We would go get parts in his van and he would just tell joke after joke it was great for a young kid. He bought me my first BB gun and my first fishing pole. He took me fishing several times as a kid in his boat we would put out trout lines and check them a few times during the night. When we moved to florida he would say that we would go fishing again one of these days. Which i often used when i would go visit him and he would chuckle and say one if these days. Needless to say we never got to go on another fishing trip but i told him that we would again one of these days a short time before he died. Thank you for everything grandpa and i hope you are visiting with the family and are standing tall without pain.
