  • Martha higgins

    You were the best dad a girl could ever ask for, some of my best childhood memories are from when I lived with my dad when I was little! He spoiled me and my sister Becky. He nicknamed me frog when I was learning how to crawl cause I hoped rather than crawling. He called me frog all my life even tho im grown he always called me frog. I will miss him so very much and will always be proud to say that he was my daddy! I love you forever and always

    Dad I just want to say that I love you and I will miss you greatly. I wish everyone could have known the dad I remember. I remember when you would come home from a hard day’s work logging and you still found time to play with us 3 kids. I remember all the time when we went to the parades and you and Grandpa Knutsons would ride the horses how excited it was to see you and him sitting so tall and proud in the saddle. I remember all the great time’s we had with Auntie K and the cousins at the beach. Going to Grandpa Higgins house and seeing everyone. The times you took us 3 kids to the Monroe Fair. Those are just some of the greatest memories that I love and will cherish forever. Until we meet again hug Eddie and little Eddie for me tell them that I love them and I will be looking forward to the day when we can all be together again. I love you forever and one day. ♥️💔♥️ Terrie Sue Higgins Scarsella

    So much I remember about you as a child like all the times we went fishing together and going to the fairs but my best memory of you was a picture you hand drew of a deer (buck) hopping over a log in the forest you where showing me what a buck looked like in the woods you took the drawing with you when you left that day but I still see it in my head every time I think of you and I really want to paint it one day. You will be so deeply missed and I pray you know how much you where loved. I just wish that we could of spent more of our adult lives together so we could of gotten to know each other a lil more and so that you would of gotten a chance to known your grand kids, great grand kids and your great great grandson who by the way is so dang cute. Well I love you dad and I will see you again in heaven one day.
