    My strong pillar, my cheerleader, my goofy dad. It’s a shock that you left this earth too soon. You’ve always believed in me, telling me I could be anything I wanted to be if I just work hard and put God first. You have the biggest and kindest heart in the world. ( both you and mom). You’ve always put us kids and mom on the pedestal and our wish was your command. We were your world and you showed it in your actions. You were our superman dad, our mechanic, our provider, our entertainer, our heart. We’ve never had to wonder if you loved us and I hoped that you felt our love for you. Thank you dad for everthing. You are a great man, a great dad…I love you with all my heart. I miss your goofiness and how you used to make us laugh. You used to say to me…”You win or loose, by what you choose” and that stuck with me. You are a unique and wonderful dad. I know that you are dancing on streets of gold with Jesus right now, I love you dad.

    Dear Al and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I will remember Mick with fondness. I am so sorry I wasn’t there in time to see him before his final journey, but I am still coming to NE next week to give personal hugs. Love, Sue
