Great Great Grandpa, Thank you for protecting your family, your neighborhood, and your community. It is tragic that this had to happen, and the family was filled with broken hearts. Your youngest daughter, Mary, remembered you well, and spoke of you kindly and lovingly. I am sure the others did as well, but she was the one I was lucky enough to get to know. I am truly blessed to be a part of your family. Thank you.

I would also like to Thank all of you who have left comments for my 2nd Great Grandfather. He is greatly remembered and honored in our family. We appreciate your support.

Tina Burkart Gibson
Your 2nd Great Granddaughter
