Though I never had the privilege to know you, I cant help but be so thankful and grateful for the way you lived your life and loved your son. Joe MacInnis, 12 at the time of your death, had already had a Godly, righteous, and loving foundation to remember you by. I know looking down from Heaven at him, you are more than proud. He is the best son and father anyone could ask for. One of my friends after knowing and hearing my dads life story said “You are the best possible outcome for someone who has gone through the life you have lived”. I cant help but account that it was your Godly, loving actions that has lead your children including Joe to be the wonderful people they are today. I cant ever thank you enough for who you were that allowed for me to have such an outstanding father, Joe MacInnis. I look forward to the honor of meeting you in heaven one day.
Thank you for your service, to God, Family, and Country.
