Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
One of our favorite memories of this wonderful man is how he sat for more than 5 hours after Easter dinner talking and laughing with my father in law, Ronnies father, Ronald P. Surman. The family didn't know if they would ever run out of stories to tell each other, and when they finally stood up, the house erupted in applause. His bright smile and laughing eyes will always be with us.

I remember when daddy would sit on my bed and make the funniest sounds while making my bunny dance for me. No man had ever made me laugh and cry harder than the man who is and will forevermore be MY DADDY. I miss you daddy.
Sweetheart, I think about you every day all day long.I love and miss you with all my heart. No women could ask for a better husband. The hardest part of my day is morning when I'm having coffee and in the evening when we would be watching tv. You are my soul mate and just because you are no longer with me dosn't mean you are out of my heart and soul. Rest for now my love, till we meet again.
His belovedwife
