Not sure what to say?

Forever your Goober, I love you Dad.
You're still with me, inside my heart.
In the days you were in uniform, you always had a smile.
When you retired and was out of harms way, I smiled.
I recall the talks and stories, and family history
you instilled in us to pass on. You knew it's importance then.
I understand its importance now. You were my mentor,

Dad, you are forever in my thoughts, I am proud of you, your accomplishments and sacrifices.
Love and miss you, your daughter
Rileen

I love you grandpa

You were a big man amongts men.
