You gave your life doing something brave and noble. You set the bar for those of us who would follow you. If you could have only lived to see the legacy of good men that you produced, you would be proud. My grandfather, your son, was a good man. He produced two extremely good men of his own, my dad and my uncle. I thank you not only for your courage and service Great Grandfather, but for your example to all of us. I will do my best to uphold your example, and will constantly strive to make this world a better place. Rest in peace, until we meet.
