My dad drew his last breath last night with his wife and three children by his side. It was a peaceful moment.
According to his wishes there will be no viewing of his empty shell, no elaborate funeral, His remains will be interred at the National Cemetery in this area; as a career member of the military, he is entitled to full military honors and will be sent off with Taps and a 21-gun salute. He would have LOVED that!
Thanks to all who have been so kind and thoughtful during this difficult time.
