To my dad who was the greatest man I ever knew. Dad there is not a day that goes by that the tears don't fall and my heart begins to ache. You were an amazing dad in so many ways. I will always remember our talks and our fishing and camping trip. Going through photos of the family it brings a smile to my face because you were always smiling and such a happy person. I'm glad that god gave me the time eith you that he did I will always and forever cherish it in my heart. With each passing day I watch the sun shine and I know your watching over all of us and I feel your presence and the knowing that you are still with me in spirit and in mind.

I have learned so much from you and now as an adult I can use it in my everyday life. You were always such an inspiration to me. Your love for the river and the outdoors was passed onto travis and I and now onto your grandkids.

Life is so short and sweet yet so sudden as to when our lord called you home. When you left a part of me went with you a part me is empty and no other could ever fill. I love you dad and always will you were the best dad anybody could have ever asked for and I will love you always and forever your daughter ashley annette swartwood. Daddys little girl

Big Brother, The day I lost you was one of the worst days of my life. I will always love you and remember all the happy times we spent together. As I was going through family pictures recently, in every picture you have the BIGGEST smile on your face and look so happy. That is the way I will always remember you. Even though we had not seen each other in awhile, I often thought of you and wondered how you were doing. I will FOREVER and ALWAYS LOVE YOU and keep you close to my heart. Give Dad,Mom,Max,Shadow and Rocky a BIG hug and kiss for me.

You Never Said I'm Leaving You Never Said Goodbye. You Were Gone Before I KneW It And Only God Knew Why. So Many Times I've Needed You, So Many Times I've Cried, If Love Alone Could Have Saved You, You Never Would Have Died.

In Life I Loved You Dearly, In Death I Love You Still, In My Heart You Hold A Place That No One Else Can Fill. It Broke My Heart To Lose You, But You Did Not Go Alone. For Part Of Me Went With You The Day God Called You Home.

Foever Rest In Peace your sister Norma

I thought back about how long ago I met John, and I could not remember if it was when he was managing the River Rock or the Sawmill Canoe Livery, when we first met. What I remember the most was his smile and his up-beat, down-to-earth nature that made laugh. I am sorry for the family's loss it was way to soon.

My words can't explain how much you will be missed dad. You were an unbelieveable father,brother and friend. It's unbearable to say how I really feel about the loss I have encountered. I will continue to strive and remember the great memories of fishing, canoeing, camping or just talking and shooting the breeze. You will be greatly missed by many as you made friends everywhere you went. You will always be with me and memorys stronger than life itself.

Love your son, Travis Jay
