I haven’t written in a few years, but that doesn’t mean you are ever far from my thoughts. I love you and will miss you forever. Until we meet again.

Hi Dad,
Well, Pepere Harpin should be there with you now to keep you company and fill you in on anything you may have missed when you weren’t looking! I’m sure he will keep you entertained with lots of stories and vice versa. You and he were always the life of any party and certainly never lacked for a dance partner! Keep on dancing in heaven and I’ll be there to dance with you both again someday. Keep each other safe and happy and I love you and miss you both very very much. Always and forever…..

Hello Dad,
Well Spring is here! Glad of that. We were really lucky this winter, not a bad one. Haven’t written in a little while and was talking about you just last night, so I thought I would have my say. Wish you were here today and always. Still seems very unreal even after all this time that I won’t see you ever again. I think I get through that pain by not thinking of you too much and that makes me feel guilty. Wish I could figure out how to feel and still honor your memory. Anyway, enough of that. The boys are getting so big. Jen and Scott just bought a house! Brianna and Taila just had their skating show at Mount. Boy did that bring me back. I was remembering all the times you were there watching me with Mom on Sundays and you would help me lace up my skates and you’d get me that broth I loved so much from the machines out in the lobby. I miss that thing. They don’t have it anymore. Wish they did. Well, I guess that’s all the news that’s fit to print for now. Will write again soon. I love you. XxxxX

Hello Dad.  Well another year has passed.  I still can’t get over how fast the time goes by.  The boys are getting so big and Brianna is going to be eleven in 7 days.  Can you believe it.  She still remembers you and misses you.  She talks about you every once in a while.  The holidays were OK.  They’re not the same as they used to be for many reasons.  Obviously because you’re not here being one.  But anyway, they’re over and I’m glad of it!  I thought it had been a while since I’d written and was thinking of you.  So, there you have it.  I’ll write again soon.  I Love you.  LaLa

Hello there Dad. What would have been your 60th Birthday just went by! Thinking of you and figured I’d write. I’ve been dating. Very interesting how bad I am at it! Of course you were gone before I even got divorced, but I’m sure you would be relieved about that. I knew how you felt about the ex-husband and boy were you right! Things are OK with me, Mom, the boys, Rick and Kim. I went camping last weekend and I’m going to Florida on June 22nd with Jen and the girls! I will still be there on my birthday which will be cool. We come back the 26th. We’re really excited. My first trip to Florida, unless you count the cruise me and Mom took that left out of Miami a few years ago. We were only there to catch the ship though, so I don’t count that. Cannot wait – 20 days until we leave! 🙂 Well that’s all for now. Will write again soon! Missing you… Love LaLa

Wishing you were here for your birthday. Zachary constantly asked many questions about you. You would be so proud! (Maybe you are) You would be so impressed with the intelligence of both our boys. Both adorable!! Zachary just finished hockey season and is into baseball season. Good hitter!! Missing you more than words can say. Love always & forever, Phyllis

Hi Richard
Aunt Phyllis told me about your resting place, so I figured I’d visit. Just wanted to say hi. Mom sends her love too. Later. Love

Hey Dad,
I was just thinking of you and I thought I would write a little something. I know it’s been while. Well, not too much to report really. The boys, Rick, Kim and Mom are all doing well. Zach is doing very well in school, you would be so proud of him. As for me, I’m as good as I’ve been in a while. Some changes in my life, but I think I will wait to voice them. I don’t want to jinks anything. Well, I guess I just had another one of those overwhelming feelings like I needed to talk to you. So there it is. I miss you. I wish you were here to talk with me about stuff that only you could and to give me advice like only you could. Sometimes I need that. Thinking of you. Love Always. LaLa

I have been thinking of you a lot these days. This time of the year is always a reminder of that day you left us. Especially since 13 days ago made 6 years. Hard to believe. I still can’t wrap my brain around the fact that I will never see you again, even after all this time. I think it’s because I never got to say good-bye to you. I’m trying not to dwell. I just wish I could talk to you for real.
Your neighbor died on Saturday the same way as you. It really freaked me and Mom out. We are dealing though. His service is tonight and we are going to pay our respects. Not an easy thing I suspect. Bad time of year for us.
Well, just thought I would write again. I miss you more than words can say.
Love Always,

Hello Dad,
I was thinking of you and I thought I would drop you a line. I understand you don’t get these e-mails, but they make me feel like I’m still connected to you in some way. Summer is going by very quickly. Already we’re in August. It seems the older you get the faster time passes! Four days off this weekend and Mom and I are probably going to head down to the Cape, maybe with the boys! Wish you were here. We miss you. I’ll write again soon. Love, Lala

Thinking of you on your birthday (May 24) and every day. We love you and miss you very much. I hope you can see your grandsons and how much they have grown. Wish you could be here with them. You would have loved spending time with them. Mom and I take them shopping almost every weekend and we have lots of fun.You never got to meet Noah, he is quite the little character and Zachary is just as cute as ever. No kids for me yet, but I haven’t given up on the idea! Love, LaLa

Flowers for Richard:
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want,
In verdant pastures he gives me repose;
Beside restful waters he leads me;
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me in right paths for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side
With your word and your staff that give me courage.

You spread the table before me in the sight of my foes;
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Only goodness and kindness follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
