Dad's Funeral....

 Tonaquint Cemetery
On the near side is first, my son Jason, son Aaron, son-in-law Lane, and nephew Ryan.  On the far side is first, son-in-law Craig, son-in-law Josh, nephew Ben and nephew-in-law Jesse.

 My sweet son-in-law, Lane, presenting the flag to my mother. Lane was having a tough time reciting the speech they give when presenting the flag.  His lips trembled but he got through it.
 My Dad is a veteran of WWII.
Flower left on his casket by one of my daughters.  It was a good service, one that I believe my Dad would approve of. :)  I love you Dad,  till we meet again.....

Your Dad is a true legend, and my hat comes off to him. Endless respect for a man who risked his life to help liberate the world. This genuinely had me in tears, and I thank you for sharing this.
