I never knew you. Wishing I had. My father wouldn't have remembered you because he was only about 2 years old when you were killed in the line of duty. But you must have been a great guy because my dad was the best man ever.

P.S. All 4 of your grandchildren and all 8 of your great grandchildren are great swimmers!
