    This is the man that I have always loved, he has always came to my rescue no matter what the situation. He listened to me, gave me advice, & never judged me even if I did not always listen. He had a heart of gold, always willing to help others without hesitation. I am so blessed to have had him by my side for as long as I did. I will be lost for awhile without you dad, but I know you are always there with me. I will still ask you for advice & help because I know you will show me the way. The day you left was one of the worst days of my life! Oh how I miss you dad..& wish I could have a few more moments with you. I was not ready for this day to come, but I know no one ever is. This best decision I ever made was to move back to Bartlesville to be with you & mom. You will be in my heart for ever.. Thank you for being the dad you were too me!! Love you forever Dad. Pam

    I will forever miss you my friend. He was always here for me and my family. I loved him like a father. He was there for me in the most tragic times. It didn't matter what was wrong he was always here for me even just for encouraging words of wisdom. I remember when nobody else was there for me he was. I will forever miss you my friend until we meet again. Love you old man. Keep a fresh pot of coffee waiting for us...
