I am proud to say this is my Grandfather. Sadly I never had the chance to meet him. He had fallen when my Mother was only 9 months old. Though I did not ever meet him I feel his pride. I love you though we never met, your Son and both Daughters all grew up to be great people and all were proud of you. Sadly all three have passed. My mother Edna your youngest child always had a picture of you in uniform always on her wall. She passed a year ago Sept 24, 2012. I hope you are all together in heaven and some day I will meet you.
