I think we have talked several times about your dad, but I don't think I ever knew his name. All that time, I did know who he was. What a wonderful and full life he had, and what an honorable soldier he was. I know, from our shared talks, that you loved your dad very much, and I know from your stories that he loved you very much too. He has left your an amazing legacy and a surplus of memories!
I am so sorry for your loss, but I know you can find him again in a memory of a certain song, a favorite food, or in the faces of your siblings and children. I will remember you in prayer.
