Dear Grandfather, we miss you deeply.

You knew my twin cousins, and I was born 8 months before you died. But now your loving family has expanded across America with 5 grandchildren, 14 great grandchildren
, and 1 beautiful little great-great-granddaughter.

Although you only saw me once, I think, I see you every day now. Your proud portrait in your uniform hangs in our home in a place of honor where you can greet us all and remind us of the sacrifice you made for your community and family.
