Dad I miss you everyday. My life is so different without you. I found the perfect sign to put with the Callaghan sign, "Land of the free because of my dad." Msry

Precious Woody has the Saints in glory singing Anchors Away. Once a sailor, always a proud sailor. A "tin can man" with a heart surely bigger than Texas. The world became a much better place the day he was born. His loving, throughtful, charming hearthad a way of making everyone feel mighty special. To really know him, was to LOVE him. Though his missed more than anyones words could express, Woody lives on in our hearts in the WW2 room, and in hearts throughout the land. The greatest generation, Woody made sure by creating the WWII room, that USA WWII Veterans will never be forgotten. Love you precious Woody. Miss your voice honey. -Sandralina

Unforgettable Woody, many will agree had such a loving kindness with a willingness to help in word and deed. Woody's deep well of caring compassion overflowed on to all in need, regardless of who they were or what was on his own platter at the time needing his attention. His love will live on for sure. There's no dimming of the special glow he put in the hearts of all of us in the WWII chat room, and other rooms. Thankful He had Mary, a devoted loving daughter and the best TLC caregiver one could ever have. His supporting family members he often spoke about. May the good Lord comfort there're hearts in ways that only He can bring to pass. Woody is just a thought away. His preciousness gives true meaning to the word precious. All who knew and love him are united in sorrow, but joy will come one fine day as we gather at the river. Sandralina

Patricia Sullivan Plotzke I am so very sorry for the loss of your wonderful Woody . The love and kindness he shared with so many will never be forgotten. He was truly a HERO and a very real loss to us all. I am sure he is meeting with his daughter and other loved ones who are in heaven and soon will be making new friends. God Must have a special place for Woody but he will never boast of his many wonderful deeds done. . I see him there just as here happy to be with all his friends and family.Mary God will have another angel in heaven to supply Woody with his special treats. May God send angels here to comfort your family . My tears are for your loss.
