Condolence: Dad I love you so much and I miss you terribly. You were never just my dad, you were also my friend. I will forever miss our laugh together. The stories that we shared with one another. Ever time I see a garden or flowers, it will forever make me think of you. You were a wonderful husband, father, grand father and great grandfather. You were the type of person that always put other people first before yourself. I am so very proud to call you dad and I will always be your little girl. You will forever be in my heart and one day we will see each other again.

I know you had to go
Gods calling you home
To a place with no pain
And you’ll never be alone

We will all miss you,
with each day that goes by
and we all know now,
that you can fly

Fly high and be free
Fly high above all
Fly high with your wings,
you’ll never fall

Now you can soar, with
the wind beneath your wings
For now you are with the
King of kings

I love Daddy, May you Rest In Peace

Condolence: Grandpa,

You will be loved and missed by many. I am sorry that we didn't get to spend more time together.
I am glad that my boys at least had the chance to meet you and we had the opportunity to get a four generation long photograph, with you, my dad, myself, and my two boys.

May you Rest in Peace, forever and always.
We love you.

With love,
Billy, Melissa, Elijah, and Zachariah Gilbert
