Words fall short when a man lives to be 93 years old and grew up during the Great Depression. My dad is my hero and a great man. I miss him everyday but carry him in my heart. I have countless memories growing up "Lindblade". Family outings to Huntington Beach and the bonfires, picnics at Ganesha Park, visiting all the amusement parks in So. Cal are some favorites. The vacations to the Grand Canyon, Utah, Hawaii, Las Vegas and the Hoover Dam tours were memorable. Thank you for being the greatest Dad and for being a brave soldier. You deserve to be honored everyday...and you are. You are in my heart forever and you have three kids that made sure your last days on this earth were comfortable and safe. Rest In Peace.
I Love You,
