Dear Mrs. Click, Cindy and Cathy,
I wanted to send a message letting you know I am so sorry for your loss as we just saw each other. I can actually say I know the feelings you are experiencing at this time.  When our loved one is not suffering anymore and is at peace seems to be the only thing that eases the pain during ones loss. Cherish all the memories you have with him and keep them close in your heart. I will be working and I can't get off to be at any of the calling hours or funeral and I am so sorry. Know you are all in my thoughts and prayers

Sincerely,
Amy Crow

Terri, Cindy and Cathy; My family has been so blessed to have lived next to all of you, and the loss of Kenny will felt by the entire family.
Kenny was so supportive during both  Mom's passing and Dad's illness. He brought smiles and laughs to me and my kids, and my husband was so glad to have been able to meet him. Coming back to visit Creston won't be the same. Our thoughts are with you.

Cin-
I was blessed to get to know your dad through our wonderful friendship. He was always good to me, left me with many fond memories, and always treated me like I was one of his own.  Truly a wonderful man.  He'll be missed, but the memories will be forever.  My heart breaks for you.  Love you.

I am so sorry to hear that Ken has passed.  I worked in Human Resources at ACV. Such a nice man and always ready with a smile.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Please remember that it's not the date of birth or the date of death that really matters.  It is the dash in between those two dates that count.

You're at peace no pain, suffering or struggle! You're with your family up there cracking jokes, boxing, running, jumping and doing everything you haven't for years! You have shown me fight and determination and I couldn't be more blessed! Your smile, laugh, sarcasm and so much more will be missed. I'm glad I've had 19 years with you by my side! You have shown me that I only deserve the best and to never give up on my dreams! I love you papaw and miss you already! Walking into the house and not giving you a kiss on each cheek, asking about a clean shave and the smell of your after shave. The little things that meant the most the flea market visits, running errands, planting flowers, yard work, card games and my favorite decorating for Christmas!   Thanks for the great memories! Make Christmas as magical and beautiful up there as you did here with us!

No more hospital trips, no more pain, no more suffering. Thank you for giving me my blue eyes, my big smile, and my sense of humor. Thank you for showing me that Christmas is the most magical time of the year. Thank you for showing me that a marriage can last for 53 happy years and thank you for giving me the most amazing family that is able to get through anything together. You will be missed more than you'll ever know, but you can finally rest in peace. I love you Papaw.

I inherited my smart mouth from you, you taught me how to talk my way through a flea market, and gave me my love of flannels. I'll miss your "papaw candy"  that was always in your pocket. You showed me what it means to be truly strong and that it's possible to get through anything that life can throw at you. You taught us all how to work hard and how important it is to spend time with family. 
No Christmas will ever be the same without your villages, life size nativity scenes, and your tree; but we'll try our best to make you proud. I'm so glad you don't have to battle that pain every day, but you'll be missed more than you could ever imagine.  Love you and I hope you're playing cards up there.

To the man who welcomed my Father, brother and I in to his family with open arms; you will be dearly missed. Your countless stories, Christmas spirit and love for your family will never be forgotten. From the day we met to the last time I spoke to you, the conversations we had and stories you told were always impressive and filled with your great sense of humor. To live on in the hearts of others is to live forever and you will always have a place in my heart. Love you Grandpa.

A tribute to the man who makes me proud to be a Click:

Thank you for showing me that nothing is quite as good as a new pair of shoes; for being the soul brave and patient enough to teach me how to fish (even though I'd never take it off the line), build a trebuchet (whether it won or not), and to drive (and then get a truck out of a snow bank); for outdoing yourself to make every Christmas more magical than the last; for proving that a marriage truly can last a lifetime, and that you can be stubborn and still love unconditionally; for respecting yourself without taking yourself too seriously; for teaching me how to tell a great story and that there is no greater joy than bringing laughter to others; for my charisma, sarcasm, and full head of hair; and for showing me how to be proud and independent and still live a life that never hesitates to help those you love.

You will be missed, but it would be selfish to be anything but happy that you have found your peace. Your body would never let you visit my new home, but now you can see me in the big city every day.

All my love, 
Trevor

Grandpa Click accepted me as his grandson on the first day we met. He asked about my plans for the future, and he told me his storied past. Grandpa lived a colorful life. The wisdom he gave me, even on the very first day we met, I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Grandpa Click was a great man, and will continue to live on as a great man in my heart, and my memory.
