Heaven Not a day goes by October 8, 2018
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wonder how things would have been different.  My heart hurts so much brother.  Things have been so different since you left us .I just want to be able to hear your voice and talk about your Celtics   I love you brother!!!
Carolyn Our last visit February 16, 2012
4 years ago today was the last time I heard your voice, the last time I saw you smile, the last time I got to hug you.  You were so happy that day and we had so much fun.  Little did I know that 2 days later you would never open your eyes again.  The pain is so real still that I can't stand it.  I am glad you are at peace and no longer in pain, I just wish we all felt that way.  Just know that we think about you everyday and that we talk about you all the time.  I know you are watching over us.  I love and miss you so much. 

Carolyn Another Year December 25, 2011
Well today is Christmas, another holiday without you.  Probaly the worse one yet to come, New years next week.  While most people celebrate the beginning of a new year, we do not.  It just reminds us of how much we miss you and how much we are missing out on.  Another year has passed without you to hold, to kiss, to laugh with and we are still so sad.  Things here are pretty rough right now and you know why.  We are struggling to hold it all together.  I am trying to be strong, but I am so tired.  I can't do this alone anymore.  Please give me the strength to go on and fix this.  There is nothing anyone can do to help ease the pain of losing you.  It is not any better 4 years later.  Granted there are days when we are ok, but on the days we are not, it is awful and painful.  My life has not turned out how I expected it to, nor is it what I want it to be.  I am lost and don't know where to turn or what to do.  I am grateful that you are in a better place and that you no longer have to suffer.  Please send blessings to Tami Jo to help her through her fight.  We need the strength to fight this battle again.  I love you and miss you very much, but of course you know that.  I hope you are still saving my cloud for me, because I will once again be by your side when the time comes.  Give my family my love and tell my Mom how much I miss her and how much I need her help.  Take care honey!

Your Wife, Carolyn

Well, here it is again New Years Eve.  It will be 2011 shortly and almost 3 years since we lost you.   The years seem to be moving quickly, but my life seems to moving in slow motion.   I am doing well, but would be much better if you were still here with us.  We miss you more than you can imagine.  I can't say still that the pain is not so bad, because some days it still is.  I am trying to move on with my life, and still keep you close.  That is probaly the hardest part.  You knew I hated to be alone, yet for the last three years I have been.  I battle with remaining loyal to you and finding love again.  I know you would want me to find someone who will take care of me and love me, but when I get close I feel guilt.  I guess I am going to battle with that for awhile longer.   Just know that I love you as much now as I did when we were married.   Still save me a cloud.  I will be by your side again when it is my time.  I love you and miss you. 



Your Wife

Susan Farlay Mis sentido pesame March 13, 2015
A pesar del tiempo que puede pasar de la muerte de un ser tan querido,nunca se olvida los gratos recuerdos que vivieron juntos,cuesta mucho la pena superar.

Sabe que me a ayudado mucho?,en este momento tan dificil las palabras de animo y consuelo que da la Santa Biblia,usted puede encontrar estas palabras en el libro de Apocalipsis capitulo 21 versiculo 4 escribe asi:Y el limpiara toda lagrima de sus ojos, la muerte ya no sera mas,ni existira ya mas lamento ni dolor¡¡¡

Son promesas muy alentadoras para todas las personas,si usted busca en su ejemplar biblico Santiago capitulo 4 versiculo 8 escribe esto:Acerquense a Dios y El se acercara a ustes.

Hendrick Polanco My deepest condolences March 14, 2014

My deepest condolences.  May these few words from the Holy Scriptures bring you comfort in your time of grief...

John 11:32-45

32 And so Mary, when she arrived where Jesus was and caught sight of him, fell at his feet, saying to him: “Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.” 33 Jesus, therefore, when he saw her weeping and the Jews that came with her weeping, groaned in the spirit and became troubled; 34 and he said: “Where have YOU laid him?” They said to him: “Lord, come and see.” 35 Jesus gave way to tears. 36 Therefore the Jews began to say: “See, what affection he used to have for him!” 37 But some of them said: “Was not this [man] that opened the eyes of the blind man able to prevent this one from dying?”

38 Hence Jesus, after groaning again within himself, came to the memorial tomb. It was, in fact, a cave, and a stone was lying against it.39 Jesus said: “TAKE the stone away.” Martha, the sister of the deceased, said to him: “Lord, by now he must smell, for it is four days.”40 Jesus said to her: “Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” 41 Therefore they took the stone away. Now Jesus raised his eyes heavenward and said: “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 True, I knew that you always hear me; but on account of the crowd standing around I spoke, in order that they might believe that you sent me forth.” 43 And when he had said these things, he cried out with a loud voice: “Laz´a·rus, come on out!” 44The [man] that had been dead came out with his feet and hands bound with wrappings, and his countenance was bound about with a cloth. Jesus said to them: “Loose him and let him go.”

45 Therefore many of the Jews that had come to Mary and that beheld what he did put faith in him;
