Daddy, It's been a month since your passing and still I can't comprehend that your gone. It doesn't seem real. It was so heartbreaking to see you in the hospital the way I did. I never expected that. I also know that I seen you the night before you passed we were all sitting in the waiting area waiting for a scan to be completed when I looked up seen you walk out that door, stand there and look at us then walk by. I love you so much and I miss you. I miss being able to text you or call you. I know heaven got a good one. I will see you again. Until then I will live off memories that we made together.

Dad, tomorrow is Father’s Day and it will be the first Father’s Day for as long as I can. Remember that I can’t talk to you. I miss you beyond words. I know I should’ve called you and talk to you more, should’ve visited more. But I’ll never have a chance again. I consider myself one of the lucky ones that I had a dad for 58 years. I promise you it won’t be a day goes by that I won’t think of you. I miss and love you.

May you and your family find comfort in knowing to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord Amen
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My sincere condolences to the entire family in all states. I had the pleasure of meeting most of the Dray when I was just 11 years old . Several years later I got to travel to meet the rest of them. They are a large family with lots of love for everyone. RIP Mr. John and teach them how to make homemade Buckeyes the right way!! You will be missed! Prayers to the family.

Daddy, I just wanted to say that I am so sorry that I wasn't home and you were alone. Coming in and finding you in the state that you were in has been forever burned into my soul, and God knows that is not the way I want to remember you. But my mind won't stop seeing you sitting in your recliner like that. I've been talking to you as I walk through the house, just as I always did, then I look up at your chair, and I get a creepy cold chill when I realize your gone and it hurts my heart, and makes me cry cause I lost my daddy, and my best friend. I will always talk to you throughout the day so I hope you don't ever get tired of hearing me rattling. I wasn't ready for you to go yet, but I knew you were tired. Daddy, I will always love you, and again I pray that you can forgive me , because I don't believe I will ever forgive myself. Fly -high DarkHorse 99.
