Bill drinks more than ever.I am so depressed, Kim is forever coming up with somthing to worry me with. Daddy, If it weren't for Scott, I don't know what I would do. He is a good husband. I know I don't give him enough credit. But he is a good husband. We went to the hospital with Diane the other night. She is so depressed daddy. I feel so sorry for her. She misses you so bad, and doesn't have any way to began to know how to handle all these feelings she is feeling. Just watch over her, kiss her softly, and be with her always.

I have missed you / Sherry Hunt (Daughter)
Hey daddy, My computer has been down again, But I hope it is fixed now for awhile. I have missed talking to you. Daddy, I know you have seen Joy by now, and I hope you and mama gave her a big hug for me. This has been one of the hardest years of my life to have to give up some of the people i love the most. I miss you and Joy so much, I feel like part of me is missing and I can't find it. I talk to the two of you all the time, I just can't seem to get it. I just feel empty, lost, I am so lonely daddy. I want you and Joy to be happy in heaven, because the two of you deserve it. But I sure do miss ya'll. Don't worry daddy, I will be OK I just miss my daddy, and my best friend. I went to pick up the phone the other night to call you after supper like I used to do. I just started to cry. Because for a second. I forgot you were gone, And I was going to call you just like old times. How I miss our calls. Well I will let you go for now daddy. I love you. Hug everyone with those angel arms of yours. love Sherry Close

I miss you Daddy... / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
Good afternoon Daddy. I'm sorry that I haven't written you in a while. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss you. So much has went on in my life the past few months. You have always been the one that I lean on for everything. I know that I took for granted, you always being here for me. I am lost without you. Daddy, I've got to run for now, but I'll talk to you again real soon. I hope your days in Heaven are wonderful, which I know they are. I miss you and can't wait for the day to see your smiling face again. You are truely, "the wind beneath my wings." I love you Daddy!!! Your loving daughter, Kristie Close

Sorry it's been so long... / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
Good morning Daddy. I'm so sorry that I haven't written you in a while. I haven't forgotten about you, and I never will. I've just been so busy that I haven't been on the computer in a while. Well, enough of my excuses. You know. Daddy, there's not a minute that goes by that I don't think of you. I was watching a show last night and this little kid died. I started crying. All I thought about was the morning that you passed away. That morning haunts me now and I think it always will. How could watching the person you love and treasure the most in the world pass away be a pleasant memory. I'll never ever forget your eyes, Daddy. So much is going on now that I want so much for you to be here to see. Peyton is starting dance class today. She is so excited. I know you would be so proud of her. You would want her to show you everything that she's been learning. It just kills me to know that you will never be here to witness such things in her life and Cody's as well. Dennis went and put in a new kitchen floor for Mama the other day. She needed it so bad. She is tickled to death over it. I know you would be proud to see it. She got a new dishwasher too. I know you hated how the door would always drop on the old one. Now she doesn't have to worry about it. I just wish we could have done it while you were still here. I was reading in this book this morning and and line in there said, "what you would do for just five more minutes with your loved one before they passed away." That's so true. I would take as much time as I could get. Daddy, I have to go and pick up my car and take Peyton to get a dance uniform. I love you and will talk to you soon. I miss you and can't wait to meet you in Heaven some sweet day. Send us down your love, hugs and kisses. We need them. We all miss you terribly. You were the link that held us all together. We're trying to make you proud of us, Daddy. I hope you are because I couldn't bear ever disappointing you. That would break my heart more than anything. Besides losing you. I hope your day in Heaven is precious and beautiful which I know it will be. Guide us, Daddy. I love and miss you so much. Peyton says, Hi and that she loves you PawPaw. She misses you so much. You are her everything. I'll talk to you soon. Lots of love always, Kristie Close

Good morning Daddy / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
Daddy, I know it's been a while since I've written you. I think of you every second of every day. I miss you so much. We had decoration Sunday at the cemetary. Your grave looks beautiful. It was so hard. You have always been there to decorate with us. Mama got a flower for the baby's grave. We know you would have. I hope we're doing things like you would have done them. I just can't used to the fact that you're not here anymore. The hardest thing for me is leaving your grave. It's hard for me to walk away and leave you there. Daddy, I would never leave you when you needed me. I hope you know that. We all went out to Hollie's for a cookout for Mother's Day. We missed you so much there. Mama reminded me that on the 18th of this month is your wedding anniversary. 31 years. Daddy, we all love you so much and miss you just the same. Life will never be the same without you here. I love you and I will talk to you again real soon. I miss you so much. I love you, Daddy. Love always, Kristie Close
Used to wonder just why father Never had much time for play, Used to wonder why he'd rather Work each minute of the day. Used to wonder why he never Loafed along the road an' shirked; Can't recall a time whenever Father played while others worked. Father didn't dress in fashion, Sort of hated clothing new; Style with him was not a passion; He had other things in view. Boys are blind to much that's going On about 'em day by day, And I had no way of knowing What became of father's pay. All I knew was when I needed Shoes I got 'em on the spot; Everything for which I pleaded, Somehow, father always got. Wondered, season after season, Why he never took a rest, And that _I_ might be the reason Then I never even guessed. Father set a store on knowledge; If he'd lived to have his way He'd have sent me off to college And the bills been glad to pay. That, I know, was his ambition: Now and then he used to say He'd have done his earthly mission On my graduation day. Saw his cheeks were getting paler, Didn't understand just why; Saw his body growing frailer, Then at last I saw him die. Rest had come! His tasks were ended, Calm was written on his brow; Father's life was big and splendid, And I understand it now.

I Love You, Dad / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
I Love You, Dad
For all the times I never said, "I Love You, Dad"
So often it may seem as if I have taken you for granted, that I never noticed all that you did for me or the sacrifices you made for my benefit.
But I did notice. I may not have said anything at the time, and I am sure that many times I really didn't appreciate you. But now that I have grown up, I realize that everything you did was because you loved me and wanted the best for me.
I can see now that doing so much for me meant giving up a lot for yourself. As I look around, I see many parents who take care of themselves first and their children second. In the eyes of those children, I can see a hurt that I never knew. You have given me more than I ever deserved.
At a time when so many people are blaming their parents for what is wrong with them, I want to thank you for all that is good in me. You instilled it in me with each hug, scolding, understanding word, punishment, and "I love you." I just wanted to tell you that I am forever grateful, and I love you very much.

He Only Picks the Best / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
He Only Picks The Best! Many times we've missed you, A million times we've cried. If love could have saved you, You never would have died. It breaks our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone. For a part of us went with you The day God called you home. We did not see you suffer, There was no cure to be. He closed his arms around you, And whispered come to me. For all that you went through, He saw you needed rest. God's garden must be beautiful, for He only picks the Best

If Tears Could Build A Stairway / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
If Tears Could Build A Stairway If tears could build a stairway And memories were a lane We would walk right up to Heaven And bring you back again No farewell words were spoken No time to say goodbye You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why Our hearts still ache in sadness And secret tears still flow What it means to lose you No one will ever know But know we know you want us To mourn for you no more To remember all the happy times Life still has much in store Since you’ll never be forgotten We pledge to you today A hallowed place within our hearts Is where you’ll always stay

We Thought of You Today / Kristie (Loving Daughter )
We Thought Of You Today We thought of you today But that is nothing new We thought of you yesterday And will tomorrow, too We think of you in silence And make no outward show For what it meant to lose you Only those who love you know Remembering you is easy We do it everyday It’s the heartache of losing you That will never go away
