Just wanted to talk to you  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hey Daddy.  I just want to talk to you so bad.  I've been having a lot of lower back pain so I went to see the doctor.  They did an MRI and found a spot on the bottom of my spine.  The doctor was worried about it so he sent me for another MRI (bone scan).  I don't know the results yet, but I am so worried about it.  I know everything will be ok and it will probably turn out to be nothing, but I still can't help but worry.  I know you will watch over me.  If it does turn out to be something, please hold my hand and walk me through it, ok?  I need my Daddy here with me.  Today has been one of those days for me.  I can't stop crying.  I don't think the day will come that I don't cry for you.  At least I hope not.  Daddy, I should go.  Peyton says hi and that she loves and misses you.  She loves her PawPaw and I know that her PawPaw loves her.  I love you Daddy and I will talk to you later.  Lots of hugs and kisses to you.  Love you always, Kristie Close

Good morning Daddy  / Kristie (Daughter)

I just wanted to say,"good morning to you Daddy."  I miss you as much or more today than the day you left us. It has been so hard on all of us.  I thought it might get easier, but I'm beginning to think it won't.  I know that you would want us to go on with our lives, but it's hard, being as though you were a big part of our lives for so long.  I went by your gravesite yesterday to talk to you.  As I was leaving, the pinwheel that Peyton put on your grave started to spin.  It was like you were saying hi to me.  I know you were.  It's still so unbelievable.  You were always supposed to be here.  Peyton and I send you kisses everyday and every night as we go to bed.  We both miss you so very much.  Daddy, I guess I should go so I can check on Peyton.  I'll talk to you again later today.  I love and miss you dearly.  Give Papa a hug and kiss from all of us and tell him we love him too.  Big Hugs and Kisses to you too.  Good night, love you, see you in the morning, sweet dreams.  I love you Daddy!!!  Your little girl, Kristie

Hey Sweet Daddy  / Sherrty Hunt (Daughter)
Hey Sweet Daddy, Boy am I tired. Joy is in the hospital again. But she is doing so much better. I truely believe she has a complete healing, if only she will accept it. I talked to her today, and she seemed so much better. She was laughing and cutting up. She said she is going to quit smoking, and really try to get better. I really think every thing is going to be alright.
Well daddy, I miss you, But I have really give myself a good talking to. Now every time I start to miss you and start to cry, I picture you dancing with the angels. And I smile. If I know anything daddy, I know you are dancing with the angels.
Daddy, help Joy make it through this, help her to have the strenghth to fight to live, not just for me, but most of all, for her children, grand-children, and herself. So she and Glen can have time to enjoy each other. Since she has found someone who treats her as she deserves to be treated.
Well, I will close this note, But never my heart for you. Love Sherry
P.S. Tell Doug Hi for me. Close

Sorry it has been so long  / Sherry Hunt (Daughter)
Hey Daddy,
Sorry it has been so long, since I have written to you. But Daddy" you have never left my heart. Since Joy had another stroke, and everything else is so busy, along with this computer acting up, I just haven't got to write you.
I came by your grave the other day to have lunch with you, after cleaning Aunt Glennie's house. I enjoy our lunch dates. It is so peaceful sitting there eating lunch with you.
Daddy, i miss you so much. Tomorrow is my birthday, the fuirst one without my daddy. And as it is with all other special days, I miss you more and more. You won't be here to give my that early morning call to wish me a Happy Birthday.
I know you are watching over us, and you arealways in our hearts. I feel I have grown so much closer to my brothers and sisters. Because each one of them hold a special part of you, that I want to share, and I love to share our memories of you with each other. I love going to see Diane, Danny, and Maw. Because I feel you there, and I can see you in their eyes. i want to hold on to every memory of you I can. I just can't let go. Not totally.
I will let you go, so you can enjoy heaven, I will rejoice for you. But for me. I am sad, lonely, and I miss you so much. All we have to look forward to, is to live our lives for God, and to see you again one day, and together we will rejoice our homecoming.
Love Sherry Close

Good Morning Daddy!  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hey Daddy!  Just wanted to say, "good morning" to you.  As you know yesterday your little angel turned 5 years old.  Doesn't seem that long, does it?  I wish so much that you could be with us to celebrate with her.  It is so hard not having you here.  Also, yesterday marked 2 months that you left us.  It seems like only yesterday.  As I walked in your house yesterday, I could have sworn that I heard your voice.  It was so depressing that I didn't.  I guess I just want to so bad.  I had a dream last night with you in it.  It was so comforting to know you were there.  I just hate waking up and realizing that you're not.  It's so heartbreaking.  Peyton asked me this morning, "who made Aunt Glennie sick?"  I didn't know what to say.  I'm questioning that myself.  Just like with you.  It's so hard to understand why you're not with us anymore.  But, I guess it's all in God's plan.  I pray that all of your pain was taken away in the blink of an eye.  I know it was.  I am a better person for having known you.  I love you Daddy and I will talk to you again soon.  Sending my favorite Angel lots of Hugs and Kisses and tons of Love.  I miss you so much!!!  Till we meet again, love your baby, Kristie Close

It's me again Daddy...  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hey Daddy, it's me again.  I can't write much because I've got to get Peyton to bed, but wanted to let you know that I've been thinking of you all day.  See, today was Peyton's 5th birthday party.  She wanted you here to share with her so bad.  I too wish you were here.  I know in my heart that you were.  It's hard taking pictures and you not being here to be in them.  I love you Daddy and miss you so very very much.  You would have been so proud of the turnout.  Everyone came.  Peyton had a blast.  Oh course she got everything she wanted and more.  Well, Daddy I hate to run, but I've got to get Peyton ready for bed and myself too.  It's been a long day.  Peyton and I miss you so much.  Can't wait to see you and talk to you again.  Sherry told me to listen to a song called, "I've never been so homesick."  It's a beautiful song.  It's true, I've never been so homesick.  I want to be with you so bad.  I know when it's my time, I'll be coming home to you and I embrace that time.  I can't wait!!!  I love you and I'll see you!!!  Lots of Hugs and Kisses to my Favorite Angel!!!!  Your little girl, Kristie Close

Hi Daddy  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hello Daddy. I am missing you terribly.  Oh, how I wish you were here.  I just want to hear your voice so bad.  The things we took for granted when you were still with us.  I guess I thought you were invinceable.  The other day I pulled out some videos that I had made during our vacations and holidays.  I sat down with Mama, Danny, Peyton and Maw Maw to watch them.  I could hardly watch them from tearing up.  Mama cried and ran out of the room.  I get so caught up in my grieving that I sometimes forget that others are grieving too.  She misses you so much.  I can't even imagine how hard it must be on her.  To lose the man you loved for 30 years and the father of your children.  I know that you thought that you were testy with her at times, but she didn't mind.  She knew that you were sick and that you didn't mean it.  We're having Peyton's birthday party on Saturday and I wish so much that you could be here and be a part of it.  It's going to be so hard.  It's so hard to celebrate when you've lost a big part of your life.  I want you to be here to make more memories with us.  I don't want to make memories without you.  Your little Peyton is turning 5.  Hard to believe isn't it?!?  Seems like only yesterday that you and Danny were rushing me to the hospital early that morning to have her.  I am so glad that you were a big part in the biggest day of my life.  I wish you could be here to see her start school.  I know you would be so proud of her.  We were cleaning out her room the other day when I picked up a box and was going to throw it away.  She wouldn't let me.  She said that her Paw Paw gave it to her.  It was a little shoe box that had dress up shoes in it.  She loved to wear them and you loved to see her wear them.  I'm like she is...I don't want to throw anything away that you gave me.  Well, Daddy, I guess I should go, but I want you to know that I love you and I always will.  I'll set a place for you at Peyton's birthday table and I'll light a candle for you along with hers to celebrate your birthday.  I love you Daddy and miss you dearly.  Can't wait to see you again...  Love you, your little girl, Kristie Close

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hello Daddy.  I just wanted to write and wish you a Happy 74th Birthday!!!  I guess from now on, you'll be having 2 birthdays.  March 3rd, when you were born on this earth and January 15th, when you were born again in Heaven.  I can't wait to share that birthday with you.  I love you and miss you tremendously.  I went to visit Aunt Glennie in the hospital and she is doing wonderful.  It looks like they got all of the cancer out.  I know that God is looking out for her and so are you.  Well, I've got to get your darling Peyton to bed, but just thought I'd wish you a Happy Birthday.  Peyton wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday too.  I love you and will write to you again tomorrow.  I miss you!!!  Hugs and Kisses!!!  Kristie Close

Hey Daddy, I know this is a way to talk to you, And iit does help I guess. But everytime I come here, I can't help but to cry. Daddy, I want to be strong. And I want you to be proud of me. But this is so hard to be here, and to miss you so much. My heart is hurting daddy, and I don't know how to make it better.
Your birthday is in 3 days. I know you now have a new birthday. You were born into heaven, and you are celebrating I know. I am happy for you that you are no longer in any pain. And everything is so beautiful there. But I still think of you with tears in y eyes.

Hey Daddy.  I just wanted to say how much you are loved and missed.  It has been a rough month and a half.  Some days are better than others, but it's so hard.  Some days, I just want to stay in bed.  Well, your birthday will be here on Thursday.  I guess it will be a joyous one for you.  From now on, your birthdays will be spent with Jesus and your loved one who have gone on.  What a celebration that will be!!!  I just wish I could spend it with you.  Peyton and I are planning on taking balloons to your grave.  It is still so hard to believe that you are actually gone.  I liked the world a lot better with you in it.  Hollie and I are trying to do our best in taking care of Moma and Danny for you.  I hope we're doing ok.  We found out last week that Aunt Glennie has a milignant tumor in her breast.  She's having surgery on Wednesday to have it removed.  I know she is so scared.  We are for her.  Please look after her and walk her through this.  I know that she would like nothing more than for you to be the one holding her hand and letting her know that everything's going to be alright.  She loves her little brother.  I also know that it's been so hard on her after you left.  She goes by your grave all the time and visits with Moma a lot.  Please look out for her and the family as they go through this.  Well, Daddy I guess I should go for now.  I just want you to know that I truly do love you so very much and miss you just the same.  Can't wait to see you at the Pearly Gates!!!  I love you, Kristie Close

Hey daddy, I have missed talking to you. My computer went on the blink for a few days, and it was like losing you all over again.
We got a bit of bad news about Aunt Glennie. But I know in my heart, she will be fine. But daddy" Just be with her during this time, and give her comfort.
I told someone the other day, That I think it is getting harder without you everyday. I don't have a day go by, That I don't want to just sit down and cry.
Thank you for being such a wonderful father and for loving us all so much. You taught us to love each other, and to know" As long as we have each other, we will never be alone.
The kids miss you so much, and I wish I could be strong for everyone. But I feel as if I am falling apart without you. You came to me in my dream the other night, and a part of me, just wanted to sleep forever, as long as you were there. I want to live for my family. But I do miss you. So come to me anytime in my dreams. i will welcome you.
I miss you coming out to supper with me. I miss everything about you. I don't want to forget your smell, your smile, your love. I don't ever want to forget anything about you.
Well daddy, I love you, and I will write again soon. Love You, Sherry Close

Hi Daddy!  I just wanted to let you know how lucky we were to have you in our lives.  And I know that you were proud of your family.  I remember all of the wonderful memories that we all shared with you.  You always bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eyes.  Mostly tears lately.  I wish that we could make more memories together.  I miss my Daddy so very much.  My heart hurts so bad.  I know that Cody and Peyton miss you so very much.  You were everything to them.  And them to you. You are still everything to them.  We will keep your spirit alive in them.  Please watch over them.  I remember the night we visited you in ICU and Cody got to come in and see you, the first thing you asked him, after hugging him, was, "what about that rocket I gave you?"  I'll never forget that.  We all got a good laugh and a cry out of that, because that had been a while back when you gave it to him.  It hurt me so bad the night that you said goodbye to them.  I knew in my heart that it would be the last time you would see each other.  But you pulled together every bit of strength that you had and hugged them, kissed them and told them you loved them.  That broke my heart into a million pieces.  I wish they could have grown up with you in their lives.  The things that I fear most...are not being able to keep your voice, smell, laughter and touch fresh in my heart.  Right now, I can feel those things and I never want to lose that.  I never want to forget.  You know...I've always been afraid of the thought of death.  Not Heaven...just the thought of death in general.  Now...I'm not.  I just want to live my life so that I can see you again.  I can't wait for the day that we get to hug again and hear you say the words, "I love you, sweetheart."  How I long to talk face to face with you again.  Daddy, would you look down on us and guide us?  Look out for us?  I know you will...you always have.  You have never failed us.  Thank you so very much for everything you've done for us.  You've raised a good family.  One who loves and misses you dearly.  Well Daddy...I guess I should go for now, it's getting late and your darling angel is already dreaming.  I should go before I wake her.  I love you and miss you sooooo very much!!!  Can't wait to see your sweet face again!!!  I LOVE YOU.  And as the song says, "I'll keep a part of you with me and everywhere I am there you'll be."  Keep a watch out over us.  *******MANY HUGS AND KISSES*******

Hey Daddy,
I just wanted to let you know that I miss you so much and not a minute goes by that I don't think about you. Even though I know that you are in a much better place my heart is still so broken. I cry myself to sleep most nights. It doesn't make it any better, but it does seem to help at the time. Our lives will never be "normal" again even though I know you are with us at all times, it just isn't the same. Daddy, you have touched so many lives...that shows by just looking at this memorial.
I know you have always worried about everyone else and not yourself, but don't worry about Mama and Danny. We will take good care of them and make sure they have all that they need.
Please be with us and watch over us always. 
Cody sends his hugs and kisses. He told me to tell you that he loves you very much and he tells Jesus to tell you that every night when he says his bedtime prayers.
I love you,

Hey Daddy!  I just wanted to tell you good night.  I'm sitting here listening to, "Daddy's Little Girl."  At the end of the song it says, "let me help you all I can, while I'm still in this world.  What will you do when your Daddy's gone and you're Daddy's Little Girl?"  I can't stop crying.  I always took you always being there with me for granted.  I miss you so very much.  Sometimes I feel like I'm doing ok, then I see something or hear something that makes me think of you and I start missing you terribly.  Today's been one of those days.  I was lying in bed with Peyton tonight and was looking around her room.  I saw all of the things that you bought for her.  You always seemed to have something for her.  I remember telling you, "no more toys."  You just laughed at me.  Daddy, I would love to have you back and would take toys all day long from you.  Man, what I took for granted.  I'm sitting here trying to write, but it's hard to see through the tears.  You were the best Daddy in the world.  I know that we weren't rich, but you always made us feel rich in our hearts.  There's not one day that I've ever doubted your love for me and our family.  Even when we disagreed.  Well, Hollie's birthday is coming up.  I know it will be hard on her this year because you're not here to share it with her.  Please let her feel your presence Daddy and let her know that you're there.  Your birthday is coming up next on March 3.  We'll celebrate, but it won't be the same without you there.  As your birthday gets closer, my heart hurts more.  It's the harsh reality that I have to come to realize.  Peyton's birthday will be next on March 15.  It will be her first birtday without you.  I know that you would love to be here if you could.  She's turning 5.  She thinks she's a big girl now.  I didn't have to tell you that.  You knew she was a big girl.  I remember how she always like being "your little nurse."  She took pride in that.  I also remember that Monday night when I spent the night in the hospital with you.  We stayed up watching the Bachlorette.  Well, I fell asleep half way through, so you had to fill me in the next morning.  I remember meeting your nurse for the first time and you introduced me as your little baby.  I just laughed it off at the time, but you said, "no matter how old you get, you'll always be my baby."  Oh how I wish I could hear you say those words again.  Can I fill you in on a little secret?  I always loved hearing you say that.  It just made me blush.  Imagine that...me blushing.  But yes, my Daddy could make me blush.  Well, I guess I should be going for tonight.  I've got to pack.  I'll be out of town until Monday, so I'll write to you then, but I'll be talking to you daily.  I love you so much Daddy and I miss you.  I wish I could be there giving you a great big hug and telling you that I love you.  I know that you went home, knowing that myself, the whole family and friends loves you.  You are loved by so many!!!  I'm proud to call you my Daddy!!!  See you soon!!!  I love you!!!  Your baby, Kristie Close

Hello Daddy!  / Kristie (Daughter)
Hey Daddy!  It's me again...People are probably tired of seeing all of my entries in here, but I'm sorry.  This is the only way that I can get things off of my chest.  I feel as if you're here listening to me.  I wonder what it's like in Heaven.  I'll bet it's beautiful.  How does it feel not having to use your oxygen anymore?  As much as I miss you, I wouldn't want you back in the shape that you were in.  Now, don't get me wrong...I would take you back anyday, I just know that you were so very tired.  I'm glad that you don't have to suffer anymore.  You're in better shape now, than I am.  I'm jealous!!!  I would love to see you running around the streets of Heaven.  I'd give anything to see your face and to hear your voice again.  Since I can't have you here physically, I hope that you will visit me in my dreams.  I welcome you.  Mama, Danny and MawMaw came over last night and spent the night.  Mama got to see your website last night for the first time.  She thought it was beautiful.  Daddy, I know she misses you so much.  I get so caught up in my grieving that I don't even think about how much she and Danny miss you.  I know they do.  We talk about you all of the time.  I have to keep all of the memories alive.  You are an awesome man!!!  Loved my so many.   I knew that you had so many friends, but was shocked at the funeral home when about 400 people showed up.  That brought a smile to my face.  I knew that my Daddy was a special person.  And it seems that I wasn't the only one who thought so.  Well, Daddy, I'd better close for now.  I've got to get your sweet little Peyton ready for bed.  I'll talk again to you tomorrow.  Good Night, Love You, See You in the Morning, Sweet Dreams.  BIG HUGS AND KISSES!!!  I will love you forever, Kristie Close
