Dad, You are the most incredible man I have ever will always be my hero! I miss you terribly everyday..hardly a moment goes by that I don't think of you. I wish you were here with us. I know that is selfish of me with all the pain you were in, but I still wish you were still here, there is still so much I need to talk to you about. I can't wait to be with you again one day. Until that day Dad, I hope you rest in peace. I miss you and love you always... Your daughter, Pamela xoxox

Grandpa i really didn't get to see you that much and I regret that but when I did see you, you were full of life and made me laugh. I'm trying to be strong for daddy (Kenny Kirouac) he really misses you and I do to.
Love you grandpa
