to the Branning family:
i am so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. He served on the Yorktown with my father, Albert Jansen, and i was fortunate enough to meet him at several of the Yorktown reunions in Charleston. I only learned today that he passed away. I will treasure the stories told by my dad and Ed at those reunions. What a great generation!
We were so sorry to hear about your father. Please know that you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers. With deepest sympathy, Ed & Val Gardner
Mary, Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I was honored to have met him and thank him for his service to our country.
Mary and Family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathies. May your father's memory be eternal.
To The Branning Family:
Although I am a relative newcomer to the "clan", I feel like I have known you all forever, and so grateful that I was able to meet your Dad at Patrick's homecoming party. May God bless each one of you and may the way your father lived his life live on in all of you.
