Very sweet young friend of mine, she was a wife, mother, grandmother, of 47 years young. She was an awesome friend, loving, caring, special to all that had the opportunity to have met her.
Sharon was a very bright lite, charismatic, like a magnet, I was attracted to her, an immediate bond started to form with her and I. I loved her way, her confidence in everything she wanted, but yet there was a very shy side that she would not share with everyone, almost child like. Still had innocence, but she tried not to let it show, always wanted to appear tough, and completely in charge.
Her bright lite, was put out much too soon,she left us 9/21/2014. She had so much left unfinished, I am sure she is still trying to work that all out too, making deals with the big guy up there. I am sure she was furious, for leaving behind so much, all the love that she had still shines in her children, grandchildren, family members, and numerous friends and acquaintances that she left behind, she is and will be so loved and so missed. She will always live on in our hearts and our memories of our time together.
Love U Always & Forever, My Dearest Friend Sharon

i miss you so much. I miss you everyday. I am so grateful that you were my dad. I miss your hugs and you telling me how much you loved me. i'm blessed that I was the one stroking your head as you passed to a better place. I know that you are watching me and don't like to see me sad, you never did. I'm sad because I have to adjust to my new normal without you on this earth with me. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I know how much you appreciated the little things in life, like the Christmas tree and just listening to me and ma talk. I loved your stories of the Korean war and how tough you were and what a good boxer you were. It always made me sad when I saw how you had to give up your favorite things like fishing and hunting, but the smile on yoiur face when I came to visit made me know that your true meaning in life didn't come from those activities, but from the love you had for your family. I feel like i lost one of my greatest "cheerleaders" in life. I know you are happy that we are taking good care of "ma". God makes NO mistakes, he gave me the best dad for me. I see so much of you in me. The holidays are tough, I can hardly bear to see your empty chair and I keep thinkng you will come around the corner when I visit ma. But i feel your presence always. I love you with my whole heart. I promise to be strong as I navigate my grief, because you were the strongest man I knew.. you can rest happily because you know Ed takes good care of me, but NOONE can ever take the place of your love. Until we all meet again, I will Never forget all the good you taught me and I will talk about you to Alec (he is so intrigued by you) and I feel your spirit in nature, the birds, and the animals . I love you with my whole heart. Thank you agin for helping me to become the best person I can be <3
Love you forever, Your "pumpkin" Paula

Our first Thanksgiving and Christmas without you is hitting me hard. I know your at peace now but the fact remains the same. The holidays just don't seem the same nor does anything else. You are our hero dad and we know you fought like Heck to stay. But we are ok. We told you we would be. I love and miss you so much. Hope you and mom are going to have the best holidays together this year since your together.
I LOVE YOU DAD

My Dear Husband,
The holidays are fast approaching and we will miss you more than ever. Our first Christmas without you will be a very solemn one. The years of joy and happiness you blessed us with are now memories we hold dear to our hearts. You are in a better place and Mom has joined you. Losing both of you in a matter of months has been overwhelming. The Lord has helped me by instilling his strength in me... strength I didn't realize I had. With him I am able to cope knowing you are both in his loving care for eternity. All my love and gratefulness for being loved by you. Forever in my heart until we meet again.

It's been almost 2 weeks since our beautiful grandson, Liam Townsend, was born. He is perfect as I am sure you saw before God sent him to us. Proof of how much our daughter loved you is the fact that she gave him your name. I wish you were here to enjoy him with us as I have wished every day that you were here to enjoy Ella. I can imagine how much you would spoil them even more than I do.
I miss you every day. Love you.

I miss you, I miss you, I miss you. One for each year that you have been gone.
Wish you were given the chance to meet Ella & to meet our little boy that will be here soon. You would have been such a great grandfather to them just like you were a great Dad to Lyndsay.
I love you.

Mom it's been one month since I've seen your face,heard your voice or held your hand. Although I miss you so much I am glad that you are with dad.I know how much you missed him and longed to be with him.It was so hard to let you go to be with him.I cherish every memory that I have of you and daddy.If I could have only one wish it would be to turn back time and have you both here with us all. The loss I feel for you both is unbearable. I think of you both everyday and long to see you and hear your voice again. I pray that you come to me in a dream but you don't. The hardest thing I have ever done was to say good bye!

Dad, it's been two months since you left us but you are still an inspiration to your children and grandchildren to live life to its fullest! Your children are constantly meeting people who you befriended, bowled or golfed with, or helped out in life in some way. They all tell us how fortunate we are to have had you as our Dad and how much they miss you. Although their thoughts help, it doesn't compare to the grief we are still experiencing as your children thought you would live forever. I still go to pick up the phone each morning at 10 am to call you and Thursday nights won't be the same without dinners with my Dad. You raised us right to love God, family, country and friends. You taught us to never give up and that you only get out of life what you're willing to work for in putting in it. I know you're now with Mom and watching over us and guiding us each day. We look forward to seeing you again in Heaven!
