    Well dad, I know mom was busy today making your ice box cake for your birthday tomorrow. I am sure it will be the best you’ve ever had. We miss you so much and as we celebrated moms home going with a slideshow of old pictures, you were in so many of them and it did our hearts good to remember all those great times we had growing up. Love you and miss you and we will see you when we get there!

    Dearest Dad. Thinking about you and your Birthday tomorrow. Even though you and Mom have gone on to your new home in heaven; we still hold you so very close in our hearts and look forward to the day we will all be reunited. We hold all the memories of you and Mom very close to our hearts and know you are still with us. Love you so much. ❤️ Beverly

    You left us nine years ago yet you’ve never really left us as we think of you and all the wonderful memories we had with you throughout the years. I am sure you were thrilled when your true love showed up a few months ago. Finally you can have her fried chicken and hot slaw and then her ice box cake. I’m sure she has filled you in on everything that is going on with your three children, four grandchildren, five great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren. You would be proud to know Jacob is still an avid fisherman and is taking Eleanora fishing next week. Your legacy lives on and the love you had for us, your family, lives on strongly. We love and miss you and are looking forward to spending forever with you.

    Oh dad, eight years ago tonight you went to bed and were gone by mornings light. You are dearly missed by your children and we long for the day to see you again. You said you wanted to live to be ninety and this August you would have been. Although your life was cut short from unfair circumstances, the memories of you and love will never be cut short. I wish you were still here sharing in new joyful memories but I know Heaven is even better. Love you so much dad.

    Happy 88th birthday in Heaven dad. We miss you every day and miss sharing all of life's joys with you. You would so get a kick out of Eleanora. She is going to be a big sister soon so many more adventures to come! I so wish you could have visited McElwee Manor but your memory is embedded here in many ways. Have a wonderful day fishing up there! See you in the blink of an eye! Love you forever!

    Missing you doesn't get any easier dad. I so wish you were still here to share in the pure joy of little Eleanora. She brings so much joy to our family and you would have adored her. As we approach you being gone almost five years, I still sometimes find myself wanting to pick up the phone and talk and tell you how blessed my life is. I won't ever stop missing and loving you dad.

    Dad, Just stopping in today to express how much you are missed and loved. Life goes on here, but we carry you in our hearts always. Just wish we could have spent more time with you, but cherish the time that we did get to spend. Love you and I know we will see you again!

    Four years ago today you went to Heaven. Not a day goes by that I don't miss you and wish we could have somehow protected you better. But, we are four years closer to seeing you again! Life is great here though. I have a wonderful new job and Erin and Andrew are expecting their first baby in November! Still so wish you could have met Donnie but somehow think you sent him. He's the best hubby in the world. Jacob still fishes all the time and he loves the Reds too. Until me meet again, I will allow the sweet memories to fill my heart and sustain it. Love you to,the moon and back!

    Dad, You left a very big hole in our heart, the day you graduated to go Home! There is not a day that goes by, that I don't think of you! We miss you terribly! Just so much I want to express....sorry we didn't have more time together, but distance prevented that...I know your heart was to spend more time with us, and you loved your family. Life goes on, but we really miss you and wait for the day when we see you again. I love you Dad!

    Dad, we miss you more each day. Wish so much we could just go fishing one more time but will have to wait and do that on heavens shore. We think about you every day and love you dearly. Life is good. Gonna be such a void in September at Erin's big day without you there but somehow I know you will be there. Her dress is gorgeous, thank you for helping! Wish you could have met Donnie, he's all you ever wished for me and all I ever dreamed of. Guess you were surprised when Bryan showed up there, go easy on him, he meant well lol. Jacob carries on your fishing legacy in a grand way and Billy finally stopped smoking. Bev got that big house she always wanted. But I guess you know all this as you watch over us each day. Until we meet again on that golden shore, I love you dearly, Cindie

    Dear Family,

    I am so very sorry about the loss of your dear loved one. May the thought at Job 33:25 give you comfort in knowing that Mr. Fichlie will return to the days of his youth and be able to enjoy life without the infirmities of old age. My sincere condolences to you.
