Dear Daddy.  Please rest in peace knowing how much you are loved, how much you've given me all my life.  I will never forget you, pop,  I won't forget the things you loved, woodworking, cooking channels, gardening, and how you enjoyed your Portillos beef sandwich....and in the old days, fishing, hunting and also so much gardening.  But most of all you loved your family...mom, me and Mary and your grandchildren, and especially the little great grandchildren.  I will mourn your death, but I will celebrate your life.  God Bless you Daddy.
