Daddy I can't believe that I will never hear your voice or your laughter again! We missed out on so many years together. So many missed memories. So many missed milestones. I dreamed so often of meeting my father. And when we finally got that chance it made me treasure so much more what time we did get to share. I loved you for so many years before we met, loved you deeply once we did meet and will continue to love you after you have left this world. Guide me from above as I still need my daddy ....
May you rest in peace, you will be missed by so many people. I may not be family but blood doesn't make you that. I've always been very fond of you and have many great memories spent with you and the family! I hope you can somehow comfort those of your loved ones who are hurting terribly!
Dear Father in heaven, is my Daddy there with you? Will you tell him that I love him And really miss him, that he will always be the first man I ever loved, the first hand I ever held and my one and only Daddy! They say there is a reason... they say time will heal...neither time or reason will change the way I feel. I know how much he suffered, I would never want him back again if that's how it's meant to be. But I wish he could come back and stay a while! I want to hear his voice and see his smile, I want to hold him tight and never let go and tell him how much I love him! One more thing Dear Father can you please grant me an answer to my prayer... can you please let me keep the memories of all the good times that we shared
RIP uncle Joe,My condolences to Tia Maria Deus and primo's Stay strong. Mary Fernandes
My dearest uncle may you rest in peace and keep watch over your loved ones who are hurting and missing you very much. I'll will always remember the times you would take all your nieces and nephews heads and bang them against your belly. The times you would be over the barbecue cooking for us while we were swimming in the pool. The goofy way you would dance. May your Soul rest in eternal peace. —Zac, Carla, and Stefi
Dad, you taught me to be strong but I'm letting you down. I can never be strong enough to accept that you are no longer here... it's hard to wake up every morning knowing that you are not with me anymore. My world is incomplete without you. I miss you so much dad!!!!!
Our deepest condolences, he was an amazing father, father in-law, grandfather and husband he will be dearly missed.. 😢💞💞
Forca a toda familia Fernandes,descanse em paz meu amigo e irmao de fe! Nossas sinceras condolencias!
