Happy 4th of July. I miss you and wish you were here. I love you and I need you more than ever. Yesterday on the way to work REO Speedway was on the radio and then a rabbit was crossing the road at the same time. I knew you've been watching over us. I just hope we're making you proud!

You were a very special part in their lives and I am so glad that I got to meet you and had the short time of knowing you. You were always upbeat and happy and lots of fun. May you rest in peace .

Critter: You were one of the nicest men I ever had the pleasure to meet and know. We had so many nice talks together, both here at our house and on the phone. I'll never forget our conversation as you gave me a ride in your new car. How full of life and excited you were. I will remember you forever, and hold you in my heart until we meet again in Heaven.
God Bless! Love your Stepmother, Laura Cheatham.

Crit: The last time we talked, you said "When are we going fishing?" We have had such good times fishing and hunting together. I'm going to miss my hunting and fishing partner. So now, when I go fishing, and I feel a gentle breeze across my cheek, I'll look around and imagine you are there with me, and I know you will be. I love you Crit. Dad.

P.S. Tell Tammy I still miss her very much. Love Dad.
