Hi Dad, It’s hard to believe it has been 1 year 9months 4weeks ago since I was able to hold, touch and hear your voice. People say there is a reason, time will heal, neither time and reason going to heal my broken heart 💔. Gone are the days I used to share but in my heart you are always there. The gates of memories will never close. We will continue to keep your name alive. I miss you more then anybody will ever know. Dad I love and miss you everyday. Mom is still processing the fact that you are gone. We always seem to bring your name up when we driving, shopping or just holding casual conversation we always find someway to bring you up in our conversation. Dad, we all miss you and can’t believe that you are not still here on earth with us. Please keep watching over all of us. Until we all meet again one day in heaven. ❤️ U Dad! Your Baby Girl…

Dad, today makes 11 months since you been gone. If only tears can bring you back. I have cried a River over the last 11 months. Thinking what could have been done differently. 🤔 Daddy I miss you more then you know. Please keep watching over us all. Mom miss you sooo much. We laugh from time to time about when we use to go grocery shopping with you. That’s what make the day past at time reminiscing about how Amazing you was. The house is so different without here. Even if you was resting when I was over we just knew your present was here in the house. ❤️ U Dad. You are my guardian Angel most ❤️ Dad Ever!! Miss you so much until we meet again. Love ❤️ U… Ur Baby Girl

Dad, It’s so hard to believe today makes 9 months since you been gone. You are truly missed. It’s like a big piece of the puzzle is missing. Time is passing along it’s not a day that goes passed that me and mom don’t think of you. You will always hold a place in our hearts.The day you passed Dad was not just a day on the calendar, It was the day when my very existence changed forever. Dad one of the hardest things that I had ever been required of me was on 9/23/21 @ 6:53am when I had to let go and let the Angels 👼 carried you up to Heaven. Dad I wish Heaven had a phone and visitor hours so I can hear and see you again. I would hold you so tight and never let go. I do feel you watching over me from day to day. Dad I hold you close to my heart and I will never let you go. You’ll always live deep inside my heart. Forever and Ever.. Until we meet again… ❤️‍🩹
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Daddy its so hard to believe it has been 7months 1 day and 1 hour ago since you left my side. It feel like a bad dream that can’t by Erased. My heart has been left broken Since the day you had to go and all the memories I treasure dearly are in the tears that still flow . You're in my thoughts everyday and that's how it will always be. Daddy, for you may be up in Heaven now but you'll always be with me. If only I could have a second chance to see your face once more time or to hear your voice one final time. Just like it was weeks and months before the day that Heaven calls for you to be relief from all your pain. Daddy, I'll run to you with open arms. To say Welcome Home Daddy Welcome Home!!! Until We meet again. ❤️ U! Your Baby Girl Tiffany

I send my most deepest condolences to the Bennett family. My prayers are with you all. I can count numerous amounts of times where Mr. John has been mentioned and I could laugh for days from the stories I've been told. The memories shared from the family are remarkable. Soar on; GOD has called home an angel who is with you ALL every step of the way. Cherish the greatest memories, and I pray that they warm your heart. Love you all. MAY GOD STRENGTHEN & COMFORT YOU DURING THIS TIME.

Grandpa, I miss you so much! I will forever cherish the memories of our hilarious conversations. My last memory of you is when me, you, and Grandma talked for 5 hours about your journey to Milwaukee. Thank you for never missing a grandparent's day during my four years in high school. I love you. Thank you for being an amazing Grandfather!

❤️Daddy When I Lost You 9/23/2021❤️ I wish I could see you one more time, come walking through the doors, but I know that is impossible, I won't hear your voice anymore. I know you can feel my tears and you don't want me to cry, Yet my heart is broken because I can't understand why? Why someone so close to my heart had to go so soon. I pray that God will continue to give me the strength and somehow get me through, as I struggle with the heartache not being able to hear your voice and see you daily. Dad if I could write a story it would be the greatest ever told, of a kind father who had a heart of gold. If I could write a book it would include a million pages, but there's one thing I would say, just how much I love and miss you every single day. I know you would always love me daddy and continue to guide me through each and every day. Until we meet again. I will always think about you and talk about you dad. It would not be a day passed that I don't mention your name. You will never be forgotten. Dad, I will always hold you close within my heart, and there you will always remain by my side to walk and guide me through this wicked world. Until We Reunite Again in Heaven. 🙏 You will always be My A1 Since Day 1. Love you always, Your Baby Girl!! ❤️‍🩹
