It is awfully quiet without you here. I never thought I would miss hearing Fox News blasting or you telling me the latest news on politics haha. I know you are at peace and had your wish of no nursing home or medical intervention filled. Over two years of caring for someone around the clock has now left me not knowing what to do. You told us to have fun when you were gone and the fun seems to be laughing at things that had happened. Guess the point I'm making is that we miss you more than we even thought we would.

I am certainly not a poet, but after several days of thinking about my step-father, I came up with this. For anyone reading my poem who has any writing skill, well, its the best I could do with my non-existent talent: Its early fall and I find myself walking the Jersey shore collecting shells. A storm came through last night. The ocean is still full of swells. The waves crash down but nothing bothers me. Not the cares of everyday life or the roar of the sea. Its great to be twenty-one again and not have a care in the world. Just spending my time picking shells and thinking about all the pretty girls. In an hour I'll meet my buddies at the inlet to watch the boats. They'll have a couple of beers while I drink a root beer float. Soon some girls will walk by and talk to us. Me first, of course. Because this is MY afterlife. All good times with no remorse.

Dear Pop Ken, we posted our condolences to you on Saturday, but apparently for some reason I did something wrong (as usual). So here we go again. We just want you to know we will miss you so very much. We have such good memories of you & Betty, like when we came down the shore every year and stopped by to see you both and tried to get you to go out with us to grab a bite to eat. Even after Betty passed we enjoyed the little visits we had with you. It was always so good to see you. We still have the beach chair you gave us and Lynne' still has the beautiful shells you gave her. You and Betty will always be in our thoughts and prayers with much love. We had so many good times so many years ago. Things like that you never forget. It's just a shame families drift apart as time goes by but memories always stay alive in our hearts. The two of you are together again and God Bless you both until we meet again RIP! We send our deepest sympathy to the whole family. With All Our Love, Karen & Lynne'

Pop, I hope you are happy, healthy and at peace. I will miss being reminded every Wednesday that it was time again for me to get your lottery, sharing with you all my snowboarding stories, talking about the latest football games and many other little things. I am blessed to say that I had a great grandfather for 23yrs, not many people can say that. I'm glad you got see me start college and how proud you said you were of me. I'm also proud of my mom of what a good job she did taking care of you and everyone else here the last few years. We all appreciate what you have done for us just as much as you said you appreciated mom. Rest in peace

Hmmm there were supposedly heart broken people and another who claimed she felt he was like a real father but yet no one was at his burial nor even sent flowers for his grave. So sad. Pop predicted it all to a tee.
