1: Papa's Memory Book 2010

2: I'm not really good at expressing my emotions, but I guess writing them down is a good way. I just wanted to say thank you for always being there for me when I needed you. Whether it was to help me out in a pinch or just by giving some, always welcome, advice. You've always been the hardest working and most generous person I have ever known. I know we've had our moments in the past but I am proud to say you're my father and I feel that we are closer than ever before. You've passed on your hard work ethic and morals to me (along with your hairline and mild OCD), but that's okay, because I love you and I am looking forward to many more holidays and Star Trek movies in the future. -Mike

3: Dad, You and I have shared some really great conversations and some poignant moments over the past years. I am a lucky girl to have you as my father-in-law. You are generous, compassionate, a well balanced man; stern and no-nonsense when you need to be, and playful and quirky when appropriate. I absolutely love your sense of humor and I love you! A lot! -Di

4: Papa Howie, I remember my first hockey game. It was you, me and my dad. I distinctly remember you putting on a James Bond movie for me on the car ride because I was bored. You would always take us to A's games. I was amazed the first time you brought me to a sky box. I want to thank you grandpa, for supporting me in my plays, trying to make it to my performances and always being there when we need you. I love you grandpa. Live long and prosper. -Lucas

5: Papa Howie, I will always remember going to your house for the holidays. I think about going over for Christmas and how we would (and still do) sit around the dinner table and eat and tell jokes. I also remember coming over for Easter and searching for the eggs in your back yard, and how we would search for the "Golden Egg". I always enjoy going over to your house because you're so nice and I always have something to do. -Kyle

8: Dear Papa, What I love most about you is how happy you have made my mom. You make each other laugh and just enjoy day to day life together. You and your family have taken in our family as your own from the start, way before you were even engaged. That has meant so much to me because it really shows how much you love my mom and want to make her happy. It is so nice to know that you look after her and care for her as much as you do. I love that you both explore the world together and continue to grow and learn from each other. My mom is the luckiest lady to have you, and I love having you as a dad. These last five years have been really wonderful with you two as a couple, and I look forward to the future together as one big happy family! Lots of love, Jenny

9: Dad, I hope you know how much you mean to me...You are a great father and friend. I know I can come to you if I ever needed to talk about anything. I am happy to see you enjoying your later years in life, traveling and being social. Especially, since you worked so hard all your life providing for us. I know I tease you a lot, but it is only because I love you... :-) I am glad to see you have found love after Mom...You were a great husband to her, and I know you will be the same for Martie. Love your daughter....Shannon

10: Big How, There's a lot to be said about someone who is surrounded by such great people constantly. Big How, you have a keen ability to foster an environment where everyone who crosses your threshold feels comfortable and welcome. I knew, the first time I came to your house and started ruffing your princess' up that you were a great guy. Despite not being able to use your X-Files mug, and not touching your remote I could still get a good feel for you. You are the kind of guy who opens his doors and his arms to everyone, and you are so great about the revolving door of girlfriends that I bring to meet you. I love the conversations that you have with everyone, you have a way of opening everyone up and that makes us all feel comfortable and that is why we love being around you. You are genuinely a great guy, and I see why my Mom loves you (in a heterosexual way, of course). TMIIIIIIIIIII -Jeff

11: We love you too. -Allie & Jean Luc

14: Papa, I couldn't ask for a better Grandfather than you. When Grandma Jane & June past away you were there to comfort me and care for me. You are giving and I am very lucky to have you in my life... I love you very much,you have done so much for me. You have taught me important lessons in my life that I know are going to help me in the future. I don't know what I would do without you in my life and thank god you are a part of my life and the last thing I have to say is "live long and prosper" my friend. Love,Brandon PS-Huevos Rancheros!!

15: Papa Howie, There are never going to be enough pages to tell you how much I love you. You have always been there for me and guided me in the right direction when needed. You've definitely been the father figure in my life. Whether it came down to school, work, dance, or my shows, you were, and are, always there to support me...... | Thank you for everything you do for me.. And I appreciate every single thing. I love you very much! Thanks for everything! Love, Megan (Your favorite grand-daughter)

16: Dear Howie, We are having the time of our lives traveling the world.Cruising to Europe, Australia, the Panama Canal, Hawaii, and the Caribbean. We've been very lucky with our blended families. I remember you telling me how special it is to have grandchildren, and it's so true. Watching you and everyone else hold and play with Lucca is just delightful! Having a new baby come into our lives has brought so much joy. We have had a great beginning to our lives together. Gardening, cooking, and entertaining our families and neighbors has been so good for me. It's been fun being in the kitchen together, gathering tasty recipes. We seem to compliment each other. You are excellent on the computer, business, and financial end of things, thank goodness. You have been a mentor to most in our families. Everyone seems to enjoy talking over life matters with you. You've given great advice over the years. Your patience and life experience come in handy. You have a generous and kind spirit. I'm so thankful you wanted me to retire. Life is very enjoyable with you. Most of all, I'm so glad you came into my life. You are the best partner any woman could ever ask for. I love being married to you! Let's live long and prosper! Martie

19: Grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days Sometimes it feels like this worlds gone crazy Grandpa, take me back to yesterday When the line between right and wrong Didn't seem so hazy Did lovers really fall in love to stay And stand beside each other, come what may Was a promise really something people kept Not just something they would say Did families really bow their heads to pray Did daddies really never go away Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days Grandpa, everything is changing fast We call it progress, but I just don't know And grandpa, Let's wander back into the past And paint me the picture of long ago Did lovers really fall in love to stay And stand beside each other come what may Was a promise really something people kept Not just something they would say and then forget Did families really bow their heads to pray Did daddies really never go away Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days Did families really bow their heads to pray? Did daddies really never go away? Woah oh, grandpa, tell me'bout the good old days - The Judds | Grandpa
