Just wanted to say thank you to you all, your support, prayers and condolences mean more than I can express, today’s funeral service was overwhelming, ive never been to a funeral that was for a veteran of the armed forces, it was incredible to see the service and an honor to be presented my fathers flag, I swear my heart stopped for that moment, a giant thank you to all those wha have and are currently serving, your honor and dignity goes beyond compare

 

while the loss of my father comes with tremendous pain I’m comforted by the life he lived, the love we shared and  the fact he will be welcomed into the gates of heaven and dance with my mom once again,.

 

thank you friends

 

Dan

I've been to funerals of close family friends without shedding a tear while remembering all the good times with them. I've been to funerals of people I never met but they were veterans with a full honor service and always end up a sobbing mess.

I cried like a sobbing sob after my Dads funeral.  

 

I could have used the tavern back then. 

 

Again, sorry for your loss Mr.  Flee

This, it is a beautiful thing.

My grandfather died when I was pretty young i’ll Guess around 9 or so. He lived in a rural area in Michigan and a WW2 vet and great guy. 

The VFW in places like this for guys his age was basically everyone his age. He was buried in a very tiny cemetery on the road he lived on. I just remember the line of cars at the funeral heading in as far as I could see because I was in the family car in the front. And the service at the funeral with the 21 gun salute and folding of the flag that they handed to my grandma. I can see it like it was yesterday and it was so many years ago.
