Dear George,
Thank you for raising such a wonderful daughter who would become my wife. I always enjoyed our chats about your time in the Navy and you were always great entertaining the grand-children. I'm so glad Amelia got to have a few trips over to meet you and laugh with you.

We'll never forget you. I look forward to meeting you again. God speed, sailor.
