Dad...your work here is complete. A job well done. Your pain is gone and you've reunited with those who went before you. Thanks for your commitment to family and your sage guidance! The legacy that you've left behind is impressive. Rest in peace!

Grampa- you taught me so much during your time here and I could always rely on you when I needed to talk something out. You were always interested in what I was doing in school and at work, and were such a good listener (even when I rambled on about calculus and physics and you had no idea what I was talking about). I'll miss your laugh, smile, and our inside jokes. Thank you. I love you.

Dad, you were such a great model of virtue. I remember one vacation you drove back many miles to a restaurant to return extra money they had mistakenly given you. Kids don't forget those kinds of things. You could discipline us with just a look of disappointment. Your strong Faith is something I'll always remember and cherish. I miss you. Love, Trice

Dad, we hope that you enjoyed your first birthday in Heaven. I hope the golf courses are great! We're all doing well here but we miss you a lot. Sean decided to go to the University of Dayton (Putka and Samaha are ecstatic). We sold the house to a great family. They have 3 kids at St. Simon. They'll carry on the tradition! Keep a watchful eye over all of us!  Love, Tom

This Thanksgiving I am forever grateful for one of the greatest Gifts in my life...and that would be having you as my father.  Will love you always and will try to make you proud every single day of my life!
