Shannon's first fishing trip with his dad was on a creek bank. His mother was there moving up and down the creek throwing rocks in the water scaring the fish. He will never forget taking the worms they didn't use. His dad dug a small hole next to a tree and they put the worms in there and covered them up and he told Shannon when we come back next time they will be there. "Dad, until we're together, those worms will be waiting for us."
The Hinton children want to thank the people that had a hand in finding them so they could get their father home to Georgia. They want to thank the nurses that cared for him, his health care representative, the VA representatives, and the ancestry researchers. They are forever grateful that he was in good hands. They want anyone touched by their story to know to reach out to those people that love you, they are waiting.
