Support our hulls in inviting seas,
Guide our hands upon the tiller

And Bring us home, O Lord,
To a safe and loving harbor.”

    Dad – I want to ditto Kirk’s sentiments about teaching us about the great outdoors, the ski slope, the golf course & football, baseball & basketball! Also, want to thank you for not judging me when I was struggling thru life’s up & downs but for always supporting me, with a smile on your face. I have always felt nothing but love from you. I will miss you more than you will ever know. My perfect foursome is gone until Kirk, Dave & I join you on the heavenly golf courses. Love you-Kelly

    Oh, Dad – I am missing you so much. No cuddles with you after Mom gets up first, no walks with you at Cherry Creek, no greeting you when you come in the door, no cocktails in front of the fireplace with you and Mom. See you over the Rainbow Bridge when my turn comes. Hope Two Shot, Willie and Shadow are taking good care of you. I love you a whole bushel like a sky (to quote you!!)

    Dad, thanks for all the great memories and introducing us to the wonders of Colorado, including: • Making those big giant slalom turns on the ski slopes • Watching Twoshot bury the pancakes up camping • Having that sip of your beer after spending hours fishing the upper Frying Pan • Getting soaked during those crazy water gun fights on the 4th of July • Enjoying good food with good company in so many family events • And especially being my golf inspiration and having such great good natured competitions on the golf course You will always be missed, especially in our foursome, but you will always be in our hearts. Love, your Son
