My Dad passed away Thursday evening. He was surrounded by family the last few days and he was at peace. He was a World War II vet and very proud of his service and his Country. He always wore his WWII hat and it pleased him to no end when complete strangers would thank him for his service. He was also proud of his family and it was a blessing we could be there for him when it was his time to go.

Rest in peace Dad.
Pin It!
