Thanks for posting the tribute about your Dad. Sounds like he lived a good and exciting life. You'll miss him but have hundreds of great memories which will come back from time to time and make you smile. May be gone in one way but he will still be beside you in another way.

Many simple things you do in every day life will remind you of him. Things he liked to do and ways he touched your life.

We never forget our fathers...

Condolences to you and yours.

Sounds as though your dad both lived and taught the american dream, along with the dedication and commitment necessary to maintain it.

We appreciate his and your service, so that others may also experience that dream.

They call them the "greatest Generation" for a reason, sounds like he had an amazing story.
