In Loving Memory of John A. Caird – Kimball

Passed away July 19, 1989

Dad used to always say “How quickly they forget.”

Well, Dad, it’s been 25 years and we haven’t forgotten you.

Every July 19, our hearts ache. Every family gathering, your name is mentioned – what you would say in a certain situation.

How we long to reach out and touch you or give you a hug, but we can’t. That’s what hurts the most.

Bob Hope sang, “Thanks for the Memories.” That’s what you left with us. Memories that can’t be taken away, even in death.

We will never forget!

We love you and still miss you after all these years.
