This was my Great, Great Grandfather.

I have Few people i would like to go back and talk to, and This Great man is one of them. What he did for the State of Oklahoma is something that will never be forgotten, and The Sacrifice he made is as Noble in Nature as anything could possibly be. He gave his Life to protect the Innocent People of Oklahoma, and Died as a hero.

To My Great Great Grandfather,
May You Be In Everlasting
