One of the greatest men I have ever known. His greatest love was for his family and country. I will miss you my very dear friend and will see you again one day. My condolence to the family and all the loved ones.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dad, I just want you to know that I miss you so much and I love you. I missed getting the phone call from you when we were driving here asking me what mile marker I was at on the highway and telling me about how much further I had to go. This is so hard for me, I'm going to try and be strong for you during this time. You was such a inspiration and I'm going to hold you in my heart everyday. I hope you are enjoying your time with mom, grandma and grandpa...and dixie. I love you Dad, there is so much I want to say but just don't know how. Until we see each other again, I will always love you and I will always have you in my heart. You are going to be missed everyday. I love you
