Today is your
We cannot send you a
And grant us one wish
and make it come true
IN REMEMBRANCE OF
who passed away 30 years ago
August 29, 1984
We miss you.
We miss your odd whistle-hum as you walked down the alley from work.
We miss your strong sense of community and your willingness to lend a hand to anyone in need.
We miss your hands that could fix just about anything, and we smile discreetly when we repair something on our own.
We miss our times spent at the store, whether getting candy as kids or cleaning and readying the windows for the Christmas season.
We miss you at Christmas, the time of year you loved most; and of course, our favorite Santa riding high atop the truck.
We miss you at family picnics, but only need to look in the eyes of your siblings and see you there.
We miss sitting next to you on the porch in the hot summer, and shoveling snow by your side during the cold winter.
We miss watching you dance and learning the joy of having a good time.
We miss you in our everyday lives and always reminisce of moments shared with you.
We simply miss you.
Sadly missed by his family & friends
