I can't believe that it has been almost a year since you have been gone. It is not the same, without you here. Something is just missing, not hearing your voice aggravating the grandchildren, or Martin not being able to call you for help or just to talk to his dad. I hate that you had to endure what you did. Amanda, Martin, and I were talking about you last night. How brave you were and strong, and what a good man you are. It breaks our hearts, and sometimes it is just so hard to even get Martin to talk, but I am glad we talked of you last night. We miss you and love you. * *, January 1, 2010 Linda & family, I am so sorry I did not know about this until today. I have always had the upmost respect for Martin, he was such a giving and loving family man. I know he will be dearly missed. He's on a walk with God now probably visiting with Granny Tillet and Mom. I can just imagine the peace in their lives now. Someday for all of us to share. I will keep you all in my prayers . Love to all, Janie Janie Donihoo ( Geren), February 4, 2009 All my memories of you will forever be in my heart. Not a day has gone by without you on my mind. It was so hard for us to let you go, but I know that you could not stay here and suffer anymore than you did. I am just glad to have had you in my life and to call you My Favorite Father-in-Law. I miss you very much, as I know everybody else does too. I am going to miss just hanging out at the house and not seeing you in your chair or aggravating the grandchildren and listening to them talk to you. It upsets me that Martin and our children will never know you and know what a wonderful papaw they would have had. I know you will be watching them though. I will take care of Martin and do anything Linda asks. Your memories will always be with me, and they will never be forgotten. I love you and miss you. Please watch after us. Until we meet again. your favorite daughter in law, January 29, 2009 To the Biscarro family, I think about all of you all the time. My heart goes out to each of you.
