In Loving Memory of John E. Raboin

Joanne Glasspoole

Dad, although it's only been a few days, it feels like forever. When I look at your picture, I am filled with so much grief. It is unbearable knowing that you are only here in spirit now. You gave us all so much encouragement and support. We learned how to think like you, to act like you, to be like you. Making you proud was so important to me. You were respected. And we loved you.

The loss we feel for you is too great for words. It is difficult to imagine life without you, Dad. You were a wonderful father and a tender and loving husband to our mom. You taught us how to be strong and your strength lives on. We need your strong support so much right now.

You will be greatly missed my dear father. There is an incredible emptiness without your presence. The only thing that keeps me going in this time of sorrow is my faith in God and the hope that one day I will see you again in Heaven.
