8: Ron's favorite memory of Mom and Dad. The times when Dad would say something off the wall, very funny and it would make my mom laugh. I loved to see them laugh. Sometimes if Dad was feeling squirrelly, he would grab mom and start dancing in the kitchen. Sounds Norman Rockwell, but it did happen. I loved to watch dad interact with his family. They would always be laughing and telling stories about the old days. I would always play the car game with him. All the old cars from 1930's and up. he would allow me to guess what the year and model and make was and then he would tell me if I was right or not. I learned alot about cars that way. | Ron Eugene August 23rd 1966 | It was a beautiful day on the golf course. As we approached the number 8 tee box, we stopped at the watering shelter where there were two large Igloos of ice water. Dad stopped the cart and got out, walked over and poured himself a paper cup full of ice cold water. He paused, spit it all over the cartpath and exclaimed "That's not Vodka!"
9: Wee willy moments with Ron Feb 12 1974 Would you believe that Ronny got lost on his way home from school today? Honest to goodness, he got in the wrong lines, going the wrong way. But was Ronny upset? Heck no! He just kept walking til he saw a house that looked like his, and went in-sure enough he was home. July 1974 When Ron was born 8 years ago, no one realized he was going to be the best fix it kid in the family. His help around the house has become invaluable to Mommy. Doors, crucifixes and bikes are his most recent repair jobs, and each was done with precision and patience. We sure underestimated Ron before he took apart the entire wheel on Terri's bike, repaired the wobble , then put it all back together again. Works good as new! All the willies think they are pretty lucky to have Ron in the family. Let's hear it for Ron!
10: Dad: We were on vacation in brainerd and we stopped at a grocery store. I think things were a bit tense in the car and Dad tried to lighten things up. He grabbed a cart and started doing this funky dance down the isle! Mom was so embarrassed! We all followed behind him, not caring who was watching. Brings a smile to my face every time I think of that day. | Mom: One of my Favorite memories of Mom has to be when we were pretty young. mom had a jar with little pieces of paper in it that had things to do for the day. I don't remember how often we were able to chose one, but it sure was something to look forward to! I remember being so excited about a trip to the D.Q. or a day at Lake Josephine. I didn't know until I was grown up that Mom did this only when dad was out of town on business. This was her way of keeping all of us happy and busy while Dad was away. Funny , I don't remember him ever being away! | Terri Lynne August 2 1968 | Memories
11: A wee Willy moment: August 1974 August 9th was the date President Nixon resigned from office. Mommy felt that she had better explain the whole thing to the Wee-Willies. So she called Terri into the kitchen, Terri appeared with a doubtful look on her face and asked what Mommy wanted. " I just want to explain to you about why the president quit his job today." With a relieved look on her face she said " Oh, I thought you were going to tell me to start looking for a husband!" A husband! Mommy said. Yeah, daddy said I have to start looking for one when I am 14." Well, after Mommy's hysterics were over she went on to tell her that she does not have to start looking for a husband now or ever if she does not want to and that Daddy was just kidding you.
12: David's favorite memory " I think of one memory that stands out. I came up the stairs because I heard dad singing and I got to the kitchen and he was singing to the radio to " the most beautiful girl" by charlie rich. They were dancing in the middle of the afternoon in the kitchen. At that point I knew my dad was cooler than anyone. My mom must have loved it. I could tell in her eyes it was just right. | David Allen May 12th 1970

Cause he is the saddest of my dolls." What's the best thing to eat? "blooney. It tastes like peanut butter and jelly, No, it tastes like soup- NO, I don't know what it tastes like. What do you think about your brothers and sisters? " I think they are bigger n me. They play around. Sometimes they're nice to me. I like them being nice and sharing. I don't like when they fight- if they are wreckin somebody's guitar, they're gonna have to pay for it!" | Febuary 1974 David has been talking about taking that Giant step in life- Getting Married! he asked Mommy's permission to marry either Grandpa, Grandma, Daddy, Terri or Jenny. When told he could not marry relatives, he exclaimed that "there is nobody left then"!
14: Mark's favorite memory of Mom and Dad Of Dad: Golfing at hudson, he always made me feel like one of the guys, and would compliment me up and down. Of Mom: Anytime we had a moment alone, we could always open up to each other, and would usually end up laughing at one of our comments. Mom and Dad: Sitting around the house switching off playing the piano and singing. | Mark Andrew October 17 1973
15: A Wee Willy moment about Mark May 1974 The Wee-est Willie is growing and learning by leaps and bounds. Evidence of this is seen when he's put into his walker. He now travels from one end of the room to the other -any-thing in his way is either rammed into or eaten. His hands are still one of his biggest sources of amusement. His fascination must be in the funny sticks that extend from the arm. They wiggle, bend and are good substitutes for his pacifier too. he kisses now with all the charm of a hose! And if you are unaware he is liable to bite your nose in the process! For some reason he loves to hide under his blankets in bed, then peaks out from underneath them when someone enters the room. The bigger wee-willies still love to hold him and make him laugh-which isn't to hard to do because most anything tickles his funny bone. He has learned to sit up by himself for short periods and is trying hard to crawl. Being both top and bottom heavy creates a problem with the above achievements, but if at first he does not succeed, he will try try again.
16: As time goes on I realize just what you mean to me. And now, now that you're near Promise your love that I've waited to share. And dreams of our moments together Color my world with hope of loving you
18: It was saturday evening when Daddy was feeling very chipper with a few drinks under his belt. He had been at a resteraunton grand ave.(at this time he also worked on grand so he knew the police on that beat very welll.) Once outside the resteraunt, Daddy looked across the street and saw his friends- the police in their squad. He immediately dashed across the street, threw himself on top of the hood of the squad, rolled over so that he was face to face with the driver thru the windshield. Only it wasn't the regualr pair of policemen who would have understood this as clowning around. These were new guys Daddy had never seen before! Picture him stretched out on the hood of this squad car, face to face with strangers! What would you say? Daddy said "OH!, it's not you!"
19: To laugh often and much. To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. To appreciate beauty. To find the best in others. To leave the world a bit better because you were here. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded!
20: Do you love me because I am beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?
21: You are so beautiful to me, Can't you see Your everything I hoped for, your everythig I need. | Such Joy and Happiness you bring. Like a dream A guiding light that shines in the night. Heavens gift to me.
22: Bobby, You were truly one of a kind who came into our lives and touched us in such a positive way. We all want to thank you and Lynne for allowing us to share your life and now your passing. I , especially want to thank you for so many things. For being such a loving and understanding husband and father. For being a great listener and conversationalist for all of your friends and your family. For being our unofficial singing leader at the piano bar or with the car radio. Even if you were a little off key from time to time. How you always knew all of those tunes from the early 50's was the mystery. For that sense of humor which was so catching- to see you laugh so hard that you gasped for breath was a highlight for everyone around you. You taught so many of us how to live and enjoy life. And now you have shown us how to die- with courage, dignity and class. You will be missed Bobby, but never forgotten. We love you. A memorial at your fathers funeral by Darrell.
23: Mothers never really leave their children. They may go off into the wind and the stardust and the trail of the moon's shadows, but they never leave. They cup their hands to their ears to hear the laughter from their children, and they shade their eyes from the sun to see them, to watch over from afar. A child's laughter and the a child's tears are heard and seen until the day comes when they join their mothers again. Though lifted up by the hand of god, and taken to eternal rest, she is with you, still. Her essence remains. Her eyes become a trail of stars, her breath the far wind, her touch the sunlight on your face. The trill of a songbird, the bloom of a rose, a blanket of fresh snow, sunlight dappling in the trees, she is among all these. She is the symbol of unconditional love. From beyond the grave and beyond the stars, her hands cradle, her voice soothes, her grace enables, her touch comforts, her love embraces, her spirit surrounds, her faith abides, her hope endures, her wisdom teaches us still. You won't forget The sound of her voice, the gentleness of her smile, the touch of her hands. you will smell her perfume, remember her laugh, hear her sing and see her dance. She is there in the day and in the quiet stillness of the night. What has been extinguished in her is enkindled in you.
24: You fill up my senses like a night in the forest, like the mountains in springtime, like a walk in the rain. Like a storm in the desert, like a sleepy blue ocean, you fill up my senses..come fill me again. Come let me love you, let me give my life to you, let me drown in your laughter, let me die in your arms. Let me lay down beside you, let me always be with you. Come let me love you, come love me again.
25: Now you will feel no rain, For each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no more loneliness For each of you will be companion to the other.
