Dad, I hated as everyone else did to see you go, but I'm glad you're with our Heavenly Father and mom.
I always remember great times and fun times. I specifically remember today of the time I asked you to be my daddy. I was standing up in you're truck and you were driving. You accepted without even having to think about it. And for that I will always love you.
Rest in peace. You deserve it. You had many battles. You won them all down here and going home you actually won the war.

Jerry, I have many fond memories of your visits to my home in Pennsylvania, our hunting in the Poconas, the great times we had in Florida and Tennessee. I know of the many struggles you had in your life. You shouldered them without bitterness or complaint. No better Marine than you ever went into battle. I know that our Heavenly Father has welcomed you into his loving arms. It wont be long before we are together again in Heaven. You are a real MAN and I am proud to call you brother. Jack
