You know I go to the house to see Mom and Nikki and Laken and knowing you’re not there, the TV is not on… because that was always on…but there’s no one here, not there to talk to you or hear you yell about something is killing me. I truly do love and miss you Dad, I hope and pray you are happy where you are, you got everything back I love and miss you

    Dad I just want to say I love you and I miss you it really sucks not being able to just call you and say hello and see how you’re doing and or even call Mom and hear you bitching the background because you know you’re interrupting your TV time how much I honestly miss all of that is unreal you truly meant the world to me dad forever I love you and forever I’m going to miss you

  10. Tony Paparone Feb 23, 2019 at 11:29 am

    Dad, I need your help! Please guide me through this. Let me make things right for all those in my life. Meaning me, mom, Caren, Erica, Nikki, and Laken. Let me be the positive influence you were to me and them. I need your strengths and knowledge. You I I miss more than you will ever know Dad. You are in my heart forever. Until the day we see each other again. I love you

    Dad, Today is going to be another hard day for us. Especially Mom! We have to put Haley down today. Now you have your girl with you. Since you passed, her health has gone down hill. Makes me wonder if you had something to do with that. I know you called for her your final day. Now she will be at your side forever. I have tears just coming down every time I write to you Dad. I do love and miss you! You and I use to yell at each other and say hurtful things to one another. But minutes later it was like it never happened. We still were there for each other no matter what. That was how we were. I dont think i could have ever told you enough how much I love you. Well Dad I do! I miss you so much. I talk to Greg Ritchie alot. He wants me to save money and him and I make that trip back to Sturgis. In honor of you! Would love to do that! With your help I believe I can. We talked about how our first day there you dumped and broke your ankle. And how hard headed you were. By not going to the dr. Or even going home. I know that was for me you did that. You wanted me to enjoy. That truly was our last trip together. Dad I hope and pray that you are happy now. As also hope and pray that you are proud of me! I love you Dad Loving and missing you FOREVER!

    I love and miss you. I so wish you were here right now. I know you are watching over and guiding me in a weird round about kinda way. I need you to give me a sign on what to do. Should I go for it or not. Or should I keep looking.

  19. Nicole M Meaney Jun 12, 2020 at 5:57 pm

    Dad, I miss you so much there’s not a day that goes by that im not thinking of you or even haven a conversation with you, so much has happened since you’ve been gone and it really sucks because I’ve really needed my dad even tho ya didn’t always say much but you always have some type of sign and that always let me know it was gonna be ok and to this day I’m still looking for those lil signs and I’m not getting them like I use to and it’s hard. Mom’s had to put up with alot of bs since you’ve passed and I honestly don’t know how she does it it didn’t always look like she needed you but you were like a back bone to her. Since you been gone I honestly feel like our family is growing further n further apart n it sucks we were like forced to all be together with you n it’s really not the same. I would give anything to have you back even if it were for just an hour there’s so much I wanna ask you and tell you. N boy do I Kno there’s so much you would love to just smack the shit out of me for n I’m sorry. Dad I really wish you were still here with us. I love you so much and honestly can’t wait till we meet again. Love you dad always and forever. GONE BUT YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. HOPE YOUR HAVEN A GOOD TIME UP THERE WITH THE FAM AND ALL OUR PUPS MUAH XOXOX Your Daughter, Nicole 👼🐾❣️

  20. Tony Paparone Sep 11, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    I pray daily that you are here with me.? Give me your patience that you had. Dad I need you always with me please. So many things I need your help with. Guide me thru them please. Things really have changed since you left. For the whole family not just me. Wish you could just come rolling in the house like you did. I still ask for your forgiveness, on that day. Something I will never let go of. Sorry for saying I would never call your phone again! It kills me daily. The last time I talked to you we argued. Roll with me dad! I think you would be proud of what I have accomplished. Sad thing is you are not here to see it. Hopefully you have from above! I live and miss you my friend! Dad, I love you, now, always, and forever
