Uncle Marty, You were never forgotten by my dad, your brother Charles or Charlie as most folks called him. He spoke of you often and never got over your loss. Now he is with you and Grandma, Grandpa, Uncles Bobbie, Georgie, Howie and Aunt Helen, also your brothers and sisters that died during the flu epidemic of 1918. My dad always taught us to respect the officers of the Law and I always have. I have also taught my children and grandchildren to be respectful as well. Thank you for your service and sacrifice and let the family know I will be glad to see them when I get to heaven although I am in no rush..... May you rest in God's eternal peace through Christ Jesus, Amen!
