Richard "Richie" and I played together when we lived in Germany 1961-63. I was about 7 years old then.В  Both are fathers were in the US Army.В  We had giant wrestling matches with Bobby participating too.В  Many times I slept over at there apartment (military dependent housing in Darmstadt).В  He was a nice kid and a childhood friend.В  Although we haven't seen each other or kept in touch hearing of his death is saddening.В  Bobby - send me an email.В  Thanks.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time, and for more comfort please visit www.jw.org.

I can’t handle this right now...
But I can’t handle this later...
I really wish I could talk to pain...
or discuss this with The creator...
But what would life be without pain...
and then there is joy...

This is my Joy...

My daddy taught me many things...

Girls never call boys that’s called chasing...
Boys can’t call your daughter without the number that’s called daddy’s back up...
And girls can’t leave their house without their father that’s to close to dating...
Oh and daddy’s girls are never old enough to date and/or wear make up...

Hahaha catch 20/20

My favorite of all...
No matter how far away you were when you heard that whistle .....
Oh yeah the Whistle....
You could hear it anywhere in our neighborhood....
The whistle meant come home and for whatever reason it was sounded that’s exactly what you did....
I love that whistle I will miss that whistle dearly...

He also taught me that as long as you tell the truth I’ll fight to the end for you...
I messed that up a lot when I was younger and that is the truth...
I stayed in trouble lol...

He also taught me saying yes sir and no sir...
Yes ma’am and no ma’am...
These were mandatory in every conversation...
(What) was not an allowed phrase and I’m so glad I got that...
I see so many who don’t have that today, but I had to have respect as it should always be...

Thank you Daddy...

All in all Daddy taught me how much a little bike ride...
Just from school to the Sing Store for a Slush Puppy on the way home...
Would mean to a little girl then, and the woman I am now...

Or how important it would be to a child when the power went out during a storm...
So we could all play board games by candle light...
I used to pray for those power outages...

I have so many more but...

Those are some of my favorite memories with daddy...

I can handle this pain...
My joy was being a daughter...
Thank you Lord for letting Daddy stop hurt and taking him home...

We will all miss him dearly and love him forever as we carry our joys to overpower our pain...
