Israel it has been two years and almost a month since your passing. In that time both of our children have graduated and are becoming productive, young members of society. You would be so proud of them as I am. Times have been hard but your presence has been felt. Continue to watch over them as they both start new chapters in life. Izzy will be in culinary school and Rissa will start at the branch to begin radiology. IJ looks like you more than ever and Rissa has so many of your goofy ways. Your legacy lives on through our children and there is a deep void left by your absence. Thank you for your service and the freedoms you fought so hard for to leave them. Yes you are a true American Hero to us and many but to them you are so much more than that. Your best role is Daddy and these last two years they have remembered all the good times as have I. We stay quiet but we respect you always and will love you forever!
