Hey Dad, everything in life that I love doing, I learned from you. You taught me how to ride motorcycles and I'm still riding. You taught me how to fly fish for Landlocked Salmon in the Roach River and I'm still catching them. You taught me how to play golf and I can beat my competition like a drum (well, most of the time). You taught me how to snow ski and water ski and all of these activities I still do today because of you. We'll miss you Dad. Say hi to Mom for me. Love, John

Oh Howie, I don't even know where to begin.... Being a CNA, death is something that I have to deal with more often than I'd like to. Some cases are harder than others because of the relationships and bonds that I build with the residents. With that being said, loosing you is the hardest death I've had to deal with in my 5 years of being a CNA. The world really did lose an amazing man, and you will be greatly missed! I will forever be thankful for all of the memories that I was lucky enough to have with you; especially my last memory of you.....June 16 was my birthday, and one of the other CNAs assisted Howie to call me and tell me happy birthday and that he loved me. That meant so much to me and now means even more! It is so hard going into work and seeing an empty room where you used to be, but I know you're in a better place now. I just wish I could walk in there one more time and here you say "Hi honey" and see that beautiful (sometimes ornery) smile! Please watch down on me and know that you'll be missed so so very much!! I love you, "you bum".

My dear dad, I am grateful you are not suffering but losing you has left a void, so final. What can I say? You gave me so much to be thankful for. Seven brothers and sisters, Maine, music, the Ny Yankees, Giants, Rangers, Knicks and even brought me to see Joe Namath play. You always told me there was nothing. I couldn't do if I put my mind and heart to it. Yes, you were ornery at times but wow what passion you had for life. I would say a passion for life was your greatest gift to me...our trip to Epcot center in Florida on your Honda Gold-Wing, talking all the way there through speakers in our helmets, I didn't think twice you were well into your seventies when we did this, we should have told mom though where we were going. I love you dad, I am so glad I told you that I loved you every time I was with you and spoke with you. May you rest now and know all of us will be OK because of all you taught us through life..May. God bless you and keep you in peace. Love, Nancy
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Hey dad, It was great seeing you this past June and going through all the old photos with you. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I will be forever grateful to you for all the things you taught me in life: how to ride a bike; ride a horse; fix the fence; mend a net; fish for bass and salmon; drive a car – (the good ol’ station wagon with 8 seats!); ski; and how to work hard in life to make things happen! I wouldn’t be who I am today without you dad – thanks from the bottom of my heart – I will miss you. Love, Suzie
