" The span of our life is 70 years or 80 if one especially strong but they are filled with trouble and sorrow. They quickly pass by and away we fly".

I was privileged while stationed at Armed Forces Staff College to be one of the Admiral's drivers 8/74-8/75. I asked for his picture in uniform and he sign it as a gift to my grandmother for her 75th birthday, he asked you sure she would like that for a birthday gift? We laughed. While on assignments sitting at his house on brick row Naval Station Norfolk in the kitchen he or his aide LT Fischer would slip in while the mess cook's were preparing the meals and ask, 'have you eaten, be sure to eat... I wondered later in life if the ADM did that because of the many years he went hungry while a POW. I respected and loved him dearly. America's dear precious Admiral - Wishing you Fair Winds and Following a Seas. You will be soon in the arms of a Jesus Christ.

I had the honor of meeting Admiral Denton and listening to him speak of his time in the POW camp at a Guidant meeting many years ago. His words have stayed with me through all these years, humbling me every time I think my life is hard. I have a personalized copy of his book which I will treasure always. America has lost a true hero. May God welcome him home with open arms.

May God give eternal rest to Jeremiah Denton and solace to his family. He was a devout Catholic who lived his faith to the full. He is part of the "greatest generation" and his example of heroic virtue will treasured for years to some.

How good it is to know that when God restores the earth back into a Paradise, everyone there will enjoy everlasting life in perfect health Psalm 27:10, 11 & 29. Until that time may the wonderful memories you all shared bring you a measure of peace and joy in the days ahead.

I just read his book. We all should be proud to have had man as great as he was. Our country owes him and his family a great thank you for all he did. I served in the USAF from 1962 through 1966 and I am proud of it. He made me even prouder.

A true American hero for all time. May he rest in peace and may God give comfort to all his family. Psalms 121....
