Once when I was a young man, I remember driving 200 miles to help Uncle Lee load shingles on his roof- I thought I was helping him but now I know that I just enjoyed his company, his kindness and generous way of looking at people- he was a very very good man.

Valerie, the photos in the gallery show such a sense of family. You'll always remember the good times that you shared with your father and all of the love that he gave you throughout the years. As a World War II Veteran, your father made a difference in our lives as well.
