Flags In @ ANC reminds me of Dad today, as I think of the Old Guard putting flags in front of every gravestone and at the columbarium, now where Dad rests.  Love you, Dad!

With your picture on my desk, there isn't a day I don't think of you. It's so hard to sum up in words how much you meant and always will mean to me. Being a little girl and hiding behind your chair to 'surprise' you when you came home from work was the highlight of coming to visit you and grandmom. I was always greeted with a huge, warm smile and I'll never forgot that. I love you, grandad.

I'm so proud of the man my father was.  An exemplary soldier but even more honorable dad. I miss him every single day.

Most people know about his dedication to his country, and his family knows him best for his dedication to his family, protecting all of us, making sure we are all taken care, always.
His number one commitment was to providing for his family that he loved more than anything.
We all remember that love.

Always my hero, Dad....
