Hey Jon, and to your Loving Family,

It's me LeAnn Grace Heimbecker, Phil's Daughter. Today, as every day You are all in my Prayers and Wishes. I just wrote on Dad's Page and wanted to tell you all that I am always thinking of you.

Though I know Lisa the Best, I know Our two Families share the same Kind of Heart, Integrity, and Compassion. We Are The Same Kind of People. I Miss All of You. I Don't Meet People Like Us Here Often.

I Pray that You Know That It Means The World To Me That You Were With My Dad That Day.
That I Wish We Could Have A Do-Over. I'm Grateful You Flew Right Into Heaven Together.
That Your Mom Cared Enough About All Of Us To Keep Our Families Together Through All These Years.

That The Woodbury Sheriff's Department Has Never Ever Forgotten Our Sacrifices Either. That We Gave And Shared You With Everyone Who ever Needed You.
And You Both Gladly Rose To The Occasion.

I Miss You. You Have Done Well On This Earth Jon...So, Now....I'm Sure My Dad Has A 3 Piece Chicken Dinner Waiting For You. Sending Love To You All From New York. LeAnn
