Dear Dad, Happy Birthday! You would have been 76 years old today! (even though we know you would've only 'fessed up to being 46 again, for the 30th year in a row!) We all miss you so very much. Little Joey Alex, isn't so little anymore - he's 7 yrs old now. He still remembers his grandpa, especially when we play his all-time favorite "Uno" game. (he would have loved dumping on you!) Monica...my gosh, everytime she opens her mouth and sings...it's has to be like being with you in heaven...she sounds just the way you'd imagine an angel would sound! Tracy and David take after you...they like their beer...so you would have always had drinking buddies - oh the stories that would have been told! (don't worry, they tell some good ones -you've got to be up there laughing at them) Amanda...the sensitive one. She thinks if you don't have an "obvious talent" then she isn't anything. Her mechanical and problem-solving abilities, she gets from you! But her sense of humor and ability to make you laugh at any & all things is a talent. Her laugh...when she lets go, bubbles up from the tips of her toes all the way up. Her sense of humor & that laugh was better medicine than all the drugs in the world could've been. It's hard to walk in the house, because you can still feel your presence everywhere. We walk into the front door and expect you to walk around the corner of kitchen with your arm up in greeting saying "how you"! Sandy & Jim, Dave & I miss sitting around and watching (although Jim & Dave usually watched through the pinpricks of their eyelids)on TV our beloved Cleveland baseball and football teams with you & mom. We were always eternally optimistic at the begining of each season our teams would definitely win the World Series or Super Bowl. I miss calling you everytime "Jim Thome" would or wouldn't get a homerun...and remembering where you usually were when he did hit one outta'there! I think we all just all liked to watch all those games so we had a reason to eat! We all loved your cooking, and we all loved listening to you and mom disagree when the food had too much garlic, or not enough salt, or if there was going to be enough food or not! The boys miss not having you do woodworking or car fix-em ups. They miss you not being here to go gambling or on cruises & vacations with them and mom. Sandy, Jim & the kids miss trips that all of you never got to take. I never got the chance to go to Vegas with you after you got out of the hospital, liked we talked about. I remember you told me it was like a dream...all the colors and lights! We're so glad you were with us to you and mom could celebrate your 50th Wedding Anniversary together. She misses you so much - but she does get to win more "discussions" with you now! Continue to watch over us and keep us safe, as we did over you, before God took you home .... Love, your daughter one last thing...I'm glad I got you that one last milkshake at the end
