To Mike and your brother John, My prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of your dad. I have looked at all of the pictures you've posted and it is clear to see that your dad was surrounded by family and many loved ones. I salute this soldier and I will keep you, your mom and the rest of the family in my prayers. Find comfort in knowing that you now have your own personal Guardian Angel.
