I worked with C.D. for a few years at Westinghouse. What a great guy and I loved standing outside of his office and listening to his police and military stories. He would tell me stories all the time about serving on the U.S.S. Lexington. I offered to take him to see the Lexington many times and he would say that he would love that. Then one day, I told him we should go that weekend. He had a sad look on his face when he told me that he wanted to go, but wasn't sure he was ready for the memories that would come back.
Loved that guy.

Thank you Dad for not giving up on me. I broke your heart many times. You saw through the drugs and alcohol and found your son. You continued to reach out to me throughout the years. You saved me from a life in prison. My fondest memory of my dad would be that although I robbed him and my youngest sister when he allowed me to come into his home to rest, shower and get a hot meal..Dad NEVER turned me away, NEVER gave up on me! He showed me unconditional love. Rest in Peace Dad, MLLH&R, for Eternity.
