Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Today marks three years that you had entered heaven, theres not a single moment that has passed by that I do not think of you. Somedays I think it gets better but it never really does because I think of your face and your laugh and it floods with memories and tears. I remember when I use to be so upset if you didn't take me bike riding every time you had to go to the store for Nanny so you would double me in the front and I was the happiest girl ever.I miss you more than ever but I know that you are always with me. I love and miss you so much daddy xoxox love your baby girl. - Posted by: Tricia Chornoby (Daughter) on: Jul 21, 2018
