ADD A MEMORY
Kelsey Conlin

September 3, 2019

John F. Conlin was not only a loving grandfather, but a hero for our country during WW2. I loved hearing stories about how he fought against the Japs at the Battle of Midway. A part of me is blessed to be a granddaughter to John F. Conlin and blessed he didn't suffer as he passed away. I pray for the comfort of not only for my family, but for my dad (James M. Conlin) who endured the hardships of being by his dad and saying goodbye. I'll always love my grandpa and it was a honor of sharing memories with him since birth.

Love you Papa till I'll see you again.
Sincerely, Kelsey LeAnn Conlin (granddaughter)
