I never had a chance to meet you, but you come to my heart and mind from time to time. I wonder what you were like, your smile makes me think you were funny and would have been great to know and spend time with. Hope we get a chance to meet when it's time.

Thank you, grandfather, for your service. I often think of you and wish I could have known you. I known my mom is with you and one day we will all be together in Paradise. Please give her my love and tell her that I miss her every day. She's been gone so long, as have you. Please pray for me. All my love forever...

I wish to thank you for your service, as we have lost a UHP Officer today as he was run over while laying down a puncture strip across the road. I wish I could of met you and asked for your daughter's hand in marriage personally. But now she is with you after giving birth to a grandson you would be proud of. As you probably know, you have five beautiful grand-children and five beautiful great-grandchildren with one on the way. They often ask about you and your family.

Dear Dad, your service with the CHP was a big part in my decision to join the San Diego Fire Department in 1977. I retired with 30 years and thought of you often on my shifts. Good on you, Jim Madere

Today is November 12th 2011.
It has been 53 years since you passed away.
There has not been a day that I have not missed you.
Mom joined you at 52 years old and Tessie Ann your first
daughter at 28 years. Kathleen my twin is also with you
for she passed at 29 years.
I am now 63 and have taken after you in most things.
You know something Dad?
I am proud to be your son.
