I've always known that I am one lucky girl to have the parents that I do. My dad raised all of his children by example to be proud, be honest, work hard, to give more than you take, to take care of your family and as dad reminded me not long ago when I called him with the scary news that our oldest son Jim (who is serving in the U.S. Army) may be on his way to Iraq soon - reminded me that "it is a duty, an honor and a privledge to serve your country".
We'll never be the same without him, we miss him sooo.. much but we are greatful for what we still have...our mom, our family, our friends and our memories. Again, thank you for sharing yours.
God Bless America and God Bless
