I was only 2 years old when my father died but I feel that I know him through stories shared by others. I was very blessed to have a wonderful mother that never let me feel anything was missing. I think my father would be very happy at how our lives have turned out. I think of him often & miss him terribly. I want to say thank you to all the men & women who put their lives on the line for us. Your sacrifices are not forgotten & are greatly appreciated.
