My husband and I are truly sorry for your loss. Unfortunately my husband and I never got the chance of meeting him, but heard at the Vfw 2953 that he had been a long time post member and a very nice friendly man.
We are both members of VFW 2953. My husband is the Commander there now and is a lifetime post member. And we just wanted to reach out to your family.
And to let you know we will keep your family in our prayers.
Commander of VFW 2953
