It was humbling to have come across this site and read all of these wonderful reflections of my father. With officers Vincent Igoe account of his time spent with my father, it brought a tear to my eye. For I have rarely heard accounts of my father outside of my family. So thank you for that. And David B. Ruderfer, I cannot say I remember flying with you, but thank your for those inspiring words. They meant a lot to me. I love you dad, we miss you daily. We'll meet again, just not today. Until then I hope to make you proud.
