Jen, So sorry to learn of your loss. I heard you speak of him often and I know you were very involved in his care. My dad was also a member of the Army Air Corps (I recognized the logo right off upon reading the obit),so there is a commonality there for relatives of World War II veterans. Keep the faith.
