    Love you Rich! Thank you for always looking out for me. Fly high and hug Dad for me.

    Dad, Your love and your laughter will always be with Landon and I. You were the best dad any one could ask for. I will always cherish our memories and will never forget you. My heart aches, but I rest easy knowing you're watching over Landon and that you are now peacefully resting. Thank you for being you, dad. You will forever be missed and I hope you know, it's because of you, that I am me. I love you forever and will always hold you close. Love, your Jen Jen and Landon.
