    R.I.P. to a great man. Jim Welland & family were the first people I've met when I first came to Winterville. It was like I was family from the start soon as I was introduced. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and the family. Godspeed Pop Welland.

    Daddy you will be loved and missed dearly but never forgotten. I'm so glad and blessed I had you as a father. I know we had disagreements and I didn't always do what you wanted. But I believe in the end I made you prouder of me over the last year that I ever could. That I made you happy and proud the last weekend you was here with us. I will always love and cherish my wedding memories cause that is the last time you were was so happy with me and all your girls. And the grandkids. I'm so glad you was proud of me and I made you happy to marry Jonathan that day. I love and miss you more and more daily. Gone but never forgotten. Dance in the sky with everyone again until we meet again.

    Love you and miss you daddy more and more daily. This seems like a bad nightmare for me and everyone else. I just walk into the house and can't believe you ain't their. My heart seems like it is broken forever. Everyone says the pain will ease a little but it will never go away completely. Daddy I will never for get our good and bad times together. This is one of the hardest times of my life. I know your not suffering any more but it still is so hard to know your gone and not coming back. I love you daddy no matter what was happening with us cause you only have one daddy and one momma and they need to be cherished daily. I'm so glad that I got to help take care of you daily for the last 5 years. I know I haven't always been around and done things you didn't like but we always worked it out. Mommy and the rest of us are heart broken but we will work through this tough time. It make take while but it will be ok. We love and miss you so much. Thank you daddy for everything you have done for me and the boys. I promise Pablo and Jesse will make you proud of them. Jesse said to me I know I bickered with my papa daily but I will not be the same in the house without papa. He says it is going to be so quite and that is going to be hard for Jesse. Pablo said to me that he always enjoyed his time with you doing the animals and helping you in what ever way he could. He says he is going to miss helping you daily. He says he wants to make you so proud. But I know that you was already proud of all there accomplishments already. I remember when Pablo came home the first day from school in his JROTC uniform and I seen your eye just light up. You was the proudest granddad at that moment and I will always remember that and the smile you had on your face. We love you daddy so much. Gone but never forgotten. I'm so glad your proud of all of us in some way or another . God know he need another angle for a reason. I just don't understand why it had to be you but I guess he need the best.

    Dad we are saying goodbye today for the last time and it is going to be so hard. Daddy I miss walking into the living room everyday and you saying good day to me. It ain't the same walking in the living room and you ain't there. I already miss playing with you and your hugs and kisses. I remember holding your hands and kissing your forehead like I did every night the night before you left us. I will miss fussing with you over the silliest stuff. And telling you to quit being so hard head and putting you dang legs up. I have so many memories of you daddy. I was so blessed to have you in my life and the boys life's. You are the best daddy and grandfather anyone could ask for. I know we had many ups and downs through the years but we always made it through the difficult times. Love and miss you daddy so much.

    Dad, I love and miss you so much .I know on earth you was in so much pain and you was suffering. I now know you are gone from this earth but you have a new body in Heaven free of the pain and suffering. I just wish you could have been around longer after the wedding to see me, Jamie, Pablo and Jesse to be the family that we all deserve. You welcomed me with open arms when you met me. I'm so blessed to have you as my father-in-law. You wasn't just my father in law you called me your son. I'm so proud to be your son-in-law. Please guide and watch over us dad. I will do my best by Jamie, Pablo, Jesse and Mom. We all love and miss you more and more everyday. This was so unexpected. I'm glad we mad your last weekend here on earth a happy one. You always made me laugh and smile even on my worst days. I will cherish the talks and time together when we feed the animals. It just ain't the same walking into the living room and not seeing you sitting there sleeping or make a wise crack joke to me. I love and miss you with all my heart. You are gone but never forgotten. Go Rest High on the Mountain Dad. Dance in the sky with all the family and family who are in heaven. This ain't goodbye dad it is until we meet again. Rest In Peace

    Dad it has been a month since you left us I thought it would be getting easier but it don't feel like it. I know you are our guardian angel. But it is still hard as ever to know you are no longer here with us. I know you are no longer and pain and suffering and I'm so thankful for that but it doesn't mean I don't miss you more and more daily. I know you are in good hands and are surrounded by love ones and Lucy Lou. I love and miss you so much daddy. I will always be daddy's little girl.
