This man was my Grandfather. I heard he was a great man and my Grandmother never remarried and raised for great children. For that reason it showed he was loved by his wife. His children are all with him now and i miss them greatly. Happy they are a family again. Go bless you all.

I agree with a previous writer who wrote “No officer’s death should be without reflection.” It is an honor to be the first to leave a reflection in your memory. May the memory of your service, heroism and sacrifice remain forever. AC
