Today makes 43 years that you have been gone. I think about us often. When I watch the Andy Griffith Show I see you through him. Small town U.S.A. and only the Sheriff and one Deputy. Those were the good old days. I cherish the eleven years that you were here with me and I wish we would have had more time together. But the times we had together will never be forgotten. Until we meet again. Your son.

When I was young
My dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play
Sometimes it seems like yesterday

And then when I was by myself
I'd climb up the closet shelf
Grab his hat and fix the brim
Pretending I was him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

He always took care of mom and me
We all cut down the Christmas tree
He always had time for me

Wind blows through the trees
Streetlights they still shine bright
Most things are the same
But I miss my dad tonight

I walk by a Salvation Army store
Saw a hat like my daddy wore
Tried it on and fixed the brim
I'm still trying to be like him

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

I miss you pop.

Your son.

Memories of you are constant. You are my friend and my hero. I can remember always riding with you in your police car. Some days we would ride all day together. We were not only father and son but we were best buddies. Seeing you wearing your uniform always made me dream of one day wearing a uniform just like you. My dream came true in 1986 and I am so proud to follow in your footsteps in law enforcement. Whenever my day starts and I put on the St. John uniform, I think of the days when we rode together in your police car. Throughout my endeavors every day, you are the driving force behind all of my efforts. I will never forget the good old days, and I look forward to the moment that we will meet once again.
Your son.

Your legacy lives on in your son..He makes me as proud as you did...Love you and miss you. Your daughter, Pat Malbrough

I was so young when you had to leave us. But there are some memories that stick in my mind. I remember riding in the scooter on your motorbike, also riding in the basket of a bicycle. I remember sounding the siren on your police car when you came home from work. I also remember getting a candy out of your shirt uniform pocket that was a light blue color. I also remember Thunderbird beach with you too.That was some very special memories. I'm so glad I remember those good time. I was almost 5 yrs. old .
