In Loving Memory of

May 7, 1928 to June 23, 1998

To live in the hearts of the people who loved you is not really to die at all

 "Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth.
And danced the sky on laughter silvered wings."

A heart of gold stopped beating.
Hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
The leaves and flowers may wither.
The golden sun may set.
But the hearts that loved so dearly
Are the ones who won't forget.

This page was created to honor my Dad and to keep his memory alive for those of us who love him best. Dad was an awesome father, husband, uncle, grandpa and friend. His loved ones were the most important thing in his life and he made sure we knew it. Please browse through the different areas of this memorial. To Dad's loved ones: if you have a story to add, I would love to add it to this page.

I Love You Dad! You live on in us and our children and I will never forget your love, your sense of humor, your feistiness, your kindness to others and so many other things about you. I hope you are having a great time up in heaven!!! I miss you.

Your loving daughter,
Nicole Atchison
