It was only months later when I learned that General Haig had passed away. He was a great military leader and statesman. I was a Lieutenant in Nurnberg, Germany when he was Supreme Allied Commander of Europe in the late seventies. At Major General George Patton's funeral, General and Mrs. Haig sit next to me at Fort Meyer Chapel and I will always remember that honor. Having a deep devotion to Jesus Christ and his Blessed Mother for their guiding powers, it made me so happy that General Haig's funeral was at the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, my favorite church. They most certainly had an influence in his life and he is with them today in heaven. May God give you strength and peace in the years ahead.
