    Dear Pop,
    We love and miss you so much. We cannot believe that you are gone from our lives. But are happy that you are with Mommy and Anthony again. We were picturing them waiting for you as you entered the pearly gates. WE all know how much Mommy missed you and you missed her.
    You were the most giving and loving Pop anyone could have asked for.
    You always gave whatever you had to us, and put us first. Even up until your last day, you had to make sure we had the will and everything in order. You were just amazing with your mind. We all wish we could have had a memory like yours.
    We now have You, Mommy and Anthony as our guardian angels.
    The babies came in asking ” where’s POP POP, with their little hands up? They were so adorable. Anthony was not able to come into the house to see you, he wanted to remember you the way you were the last night he saw you.
    You are so loved Pop.
    Please kiss Mommy and Anthony for us.
    We love you Pop
    Love Rose Diane Joey MaryAnn and Phyllis.. All of your grandchildren and great grandchildren

    Dear Pop,
    I am not sure what to say, I am just totally in shock that you are no longer with us. How did this happen so fast? Did you know? I miss you so much, everday at 4 I look at my clock and wish I could call you and tell you to take you meds.. and then listen to you tell me, that I am late, you took them already. Our lives will never be the same Pop, without you and Mommy. You were the very best parents anyone could ask for. You sure had all your ducks in a row. You have taken very good care of us Dad. You made sure all of the financial stuff was taken care of also. You never stopped wanting to help all of us and make sure we were ok..
    My heart is broken Pop, I miss you so much. I know you must be happy though, being back with that beautiful lady of yours, and your very handsome son! I know they missed you so much all these years.
    I LOVE YOU POP. I know you are thinking of us because that damn number 313 keeps popping up everywhere.
    ALL MY LOVE FOREVER POP

    Hi Pop,
    Just another day missing you so much. The weather is getting a little cooler here, but I also here it has been as cold in Florida.
    All the kids went trick or treating tonight. I cannot wait to see the pictures of them. They are just adorable!
    Noelle and Jon dressed up as Wednesday and Fester from the Adams family show. They won first prize, then went to the bar and won $100.00 cash! They were so excited.
    Noelle is doing so good at work. She just got another promotion and she is getting her own office and a company car, with a raise and a bonus program. I am so proud of her.. Seems as her and Lil D are doing so well.
    I love and miss you so very much Pop. I just cannot wrap my head around the fact that you are gone..
    Kiss Mommy & Anthony for me
    Love hugs and kisses Pete!

    Good Morning Pop,
    Every day I wake up or go to bed, or at 4 o’clock, I want to call you. I just cannot believe that you are gone. I question it every day and still come up with the same answer. I do not understand. It is just mind-boggling to me.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING POP!
    ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE HOLIDAYS. I MISS YOU SO MUCH POP, Every day I want to call. I am here for Thanksgiving, and every time I pull in the park, I have to think because I want to give your address.. That feeling will take forever to go away. I am just heartbroken Pop that you are not here any longer. I am still struggling with what could have happened to you.
    I know Mommy is so happy that you are back with her and that is the most soothing part of this whole crazy thing.
    Poor MaryAnn is having a very hard time Pop.. She is now morning both you and Mommy, and it is hard because we do not know how to help her. Please send her some loving signs somehow.
    It is a very rainy day her today Pop, the sky is crying for you. You will be so missed at the table to day and I know John will be crying his eyes out trying to say a prayer today. As we enjoy this wonderful day to day Pop, YOU and Mommy and Anthony will be right at our side. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH POP. MISS YOU MORE THAN YOU KNOW..
    MY LOVE FOREVER

  • Diane says:

    Hi Pop, Just want to say Good Night I LOVE YOU !!! Love your pain in the ass Diane LOL XOXOXOXOXOX

  • Rose says:

    Hi Pop,
    Well, there sure has been a lot of emotions going on with all of us.. The house sold! We are all just so sad, but then we remember all the great times we had in that house as we did in Medford. The memories will keep us all going and laughing and crying all at the same time.
    I still question it everyday Pop. What happened? Why I cannot get it through my head that you are now with Mommy. Just too hard to believe. I hope you and Mommy are happy now that you are finally together at your final resting place as, Arthur and Coleen! LOL
    Pop we had quite the laugh at you and Mommy ceremony. The man doing the service called you and mommy, Arthur and Coleen, Well needless to say Diane peed her pants. It was hysterical and you would have called her an horses ass!!!!
    Christmas is upon us and it will be a very hard time this year, but we will all be remembering all the wonderful christmas’s you and Mommy have given us.
    We will all start our own traditions now with our families. You taught us well Pop. I guess there is a point where we have to break away into our own family as you and Mommy did when you moved to Medford. To make our traditions now, BUT always remembering the wonderful memories. I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH POP.
    I WILL BE BACK SOON.
    P.S. I have been wanted to tell you, you would have been heartbroken if you saw little Anthony at your services. POP he was devasted. He saluted you as they played taps. He stood next to Joey and it was so cute. He cried his little eyes out. It was just heartbreaking. We took you and Mommy to the house for your last visit last week. It was very emotional. He sat on the living floor and held you and mommy in his lap and cried his little eyes out.. You would have been so proud of him.
    Well, goodnight Pop. Love you

  • Rose says:

    Hi Pop,
    Well I wanted so bad to call you yesterday. WE had our first snowstorm and I know you always loved to hear how much we got. I think we got about 3 inches or so. It was so beautiful outside. After shoveling the front and the driveway and the little old ladies next door, bud and I took a nice long walk. The weather was about 35 but it was still and beautiful.
    I love you so much Pop and miss you terribly. Still do not understand.
    Give Mommy and Anthony lots of hugs and kisses for me..
