Hey you,

I went to the range today. There were a lot of the Rancho motor guys in the class. It just didn't seem right with you not being in the crowd. Take care. You are missed!

dad its so hard going through all this stuff without you and your advice. i know people dont think we had a REAL bond but they dont know anything. its almost my birthday :D im going to be 12 and in MIDDLE SCHOOOOLLLLL!! i remeber going into fourth grade, i was so scared and kiley was making fun of me cause i thought it was hard haha. i remeber those days; kiley and you would be in the front and i'd be tagging along in the back seat :]
obviously, you know the drama thats been going on in my life recently, i need your help getting through this. it's to hard for me to handle and make the right decisions on my own.
i havent been on this in awhile, i miss you. i miss our jokes and i miss our laughs. everyone says i look like you and i have your personlaity. i dont know weather to take that as a compliment or a joke. haha just keeding im happy that im like you and that i can maybe bring cheer to other people like you did.

May 3, 2007

Her Hair was up in a ponytail,
Her favorite dress tied up in a bow,
Today was Daddy's Day at School,
And she couldn't wait to go.

But her Mommy tried to tell her,
that she probably should stay home.
Why the kids might not understand,
if she went to school alone.

But she was not afraid;
She knew just what to say.
what to tell her classmates
of why he wasn't there today.

But still her Mother worried,
for her to face this day alone.
And that is why once again,
She tried to keep her daughter home.

But the little girl went to school
eager to tell them all.
About the Dad she never sees
and a Dad that never calls.

There were Daddies along the wall in the back,
for everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently,
anxious in there seats.

One by one the teacher called
a student from the class.
To introduce their Daddy,
as seconds slowly passed.

At last the teacher called her name,
every child turned to stare.
Each of them was searching,
for a man who wasn't there.

"Where's her Daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out.
"She probably doesn't have one,"
Another student dared to shout.

And from somewhere near the back,
she heard a Daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat Dad,
too busy to waste his day."

The words did not offend her,
as she smiled up at her Mom.
And she looked at her teacher,
who told her to go on.

and with hands behind her back,
slowly she began to speak.
And out from the mouth of a child,
came words incredibly unique.

"My Daddy couldn't be here,
because he lives so far away.
But I know he wishes he could be,
since this is such a special day.

And though you cannot meet him,
I wanted you to know.
All about my Daddy,
and how much he loves me so.

He loved to tell me stories
He taught me to ride my bike.
He surprised me with pink roses,
And taught me to fly a kite.

We used to share Banana splits,
and ice cream on a cone.
And though you cannot see him.
I'm not standing here alone.

"Cause my Daddy's always with me,
Even though we are apart
I know because he told me,
He'll forever be in my heart."
With that, her little hand reached up,
and lay across her chest.
Feeling her own heartbeat,

And from somewhere here in the crowd of Dads,
her Mother stood in tears.
Proudly watching her daughter,
who was wise beyond her years.

For she stood up for the love
of a man not in her life.
Doing what was best for her,
Doing what was right.

And when she dropped her hand back down,
starring straight into the crowd.
She finished with a voice so soft,
but it's message clear and loud.

"I love my Daddy very much;
he's my shining star.
And if he could, he'd be here,
but heavens, just too far.

"But Sometimes when I close my eyes,
it's like he never went away."
And then she closed her eyes,
and saw him there that day
And to her Mother's Amazement,
She witnessed with surprise
A room full of daddies and children,
all starting to close their eyes.

Who knows what they saw before them,
who knows what they felt inside.
Perhaps for merely a second,
they saw him at her side.

"I know you're with me Daddy,"
To the silence she called out.
And what happened next made believers,
of those once filled with doubt.

Not one in the room could explain it,
for each of their eyes had been closed.
But there on the desk beside her,
was a fragrant long-stemmed rose.

Merry Christmas Daniel

December 25, 2006

You were in our thoughts tonight at the HoHo parade. Our love to you.

December 24, 2006

I miss you so much dad. I want you home. I want to see you and play with you again. Ohh i cant wait til I can see you again. I decided I dont want to be a police officer anymore because I dont want to leave my kids if the same thing would happen to me, even though I really wanted to be like you. I want you to be proud of me, even though I'm not good at anything. I know your diagreeing but thats because you have to because you're my dad, but its true. Everything I try I suck at. I want you here so you can show me how to do everything and tell me what to do but without you here I'm a mess up. I can't belive your really not coming back, and that I cant see you anymore, it seems so unreal. Everything you did, you were great at, I want to be like you. Merry Christmas, I love you.

December 17, 2006's almost Christmas & I just wanted to say hi. Corporal cards came out & everyone is in crazy mode. You remember how that was. CRAZY TIME. The time for everyone to say bad things about the people who did well, & befriend the people who did poorly.
It's such nice weather, you would love being out on the motor.

We miss you....

December 14, 2006


I've always been told
You won't be called home
Until it's your time

I guess heaven was needing a hero
Somebody just like you
Brave enough to stand up
For what you believe
And follow it through
When I try to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to
Is heaven was needing a hero
Like you

Heaven was needing a hero
and that's you

December 7, 2006

Danny.....I just wanted to say hi...i drove past your spot today & thought of you. Our thoughts are still with you. Everyone in traffic still thinks of you. We miss you & I miss you..
