The true love of my life...


My "Pop"


August 14, 1922 - March 14, 2011
~
My father who proudly served in the United States Air Force during World War II, the Korean conflict and Vietnam was not only a war hero - he was my hero.
I am proud to say and honored my hero was laid to rest at the
Florida National Cemetery with full military honors 17 March, 2011 beside my mother, his wife of 63 years and my brother, a United States Marine.

While I am proud of his service to our country, I am most proud of the legacy he leaves behind as a father and grandfather.

My father wanted more than anything to just simply - be remembered.
He got his wish in so many ways because he will remain forever in our hearts.
I love you Pop and I will forever be...  
"a Daddy's girl".

I am so sorry for your loss. I just lost my grandpa whom I took care of for the past several years on the 9th. I need to do a post about him, but haven't been able to.
