Thank You. I to have spent the last 35 years wondering how my and our lives would have been different with you here. Most people never truly understand the sacrifices that are made to keep us safe. My family knows all to well about them. I hope you would be proud of how your children turned out. We certainly owe it to our mother. I look forward to the conversation that i will hopefully get to have with you one day that I will have waited all my life to have. I am proud of your service and your sacrifice. Love. Your Son
