I was proud to have known your husband, dad and grandfather. And tho that time was brief I know he was an exceptional person who truly cared about his wonderful family. It's wonderful that he lived to see his great grandson, Trent. I'm so sorry for your loss and will be thinking of you on Friday. Bobbie Carll, Durango, CO

A true man in everyway! Grandad, you were a great father in law to me and a wonderful grandfather to Eric and Becky. You were one of the strongest and bravest men I have ever known. You were a true blessing in our lives. You will be missed more then you know, by so many people. I know that you will be watching over us from Heaven, until we are all together again. Love you Dad!

With each day as we open our eyes 99.9% of the time we feel very blessed. When we lose someone, especially a parent, that .01% seams to take over as there's no way to fill the void it leaves. I feel blessed to have know the man and the great legacy he leaves us. He was a man that laid his life on the line for his country and the freedom we know today, he and his adoring wife raised a beautiful family with loving children that are raising wonderful families of their own. As we continue on here and we think back on how Ernest A Veale Jr. lived we're all better people for having know him and his wonderful family. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Veale family. Thank you Mr. Veale you'll never be forgotten but you'll always be missed.
