My wonderful dad passed away last night on the 11th. We are making funeral arrangements with the Air Force and a fly over by the Flying Tigers. He was such a loving and gentle man who served 30 years in the service and was in the Korean, WW11, and Viet Nam. He served our country well, and for that we are so proud of him. Dad is with his siblings, mother and dad, but most of all his wife, my mother, and I know he is very Happy. I will miss him.

I am so greatful for the recognition he was given, many deserving military men aren't as lucky, and should have been honored for their duty to our country like my father. I am forever grateful, and I know he was there in spirit and was very proud.
Let your military family and friends we send a Big Thankyou!!! We are very proud of each one for their service.

Continue to be the person your father helped shape and nurture for this world to enjoy. Remember the laughs, the cries, the joys and the sorrows that make up our life experiences and pass on the wisdom learned from your father to your children. My condolences to you and your family.

For the love you have shown me in the past, you have my sincerest condolences!

Seeing that he was the one who brought you up and sculpted you the woman that you are today he had to be an amazing father, let his legacy pass through you as it has been before and remember him as the hero of your nation and great father that he must have been to bring such a sweet lady to this earth as you are!

I wish you all the best, and hope that you cope with the loss as a success of a great human being for this world!

(please excuse me if anything didn't turn out the way i wanted it to turn out, my english is not the best at times like these)

That is so sweet hon, you would have loved him. And he would have loved you too.
I will try to have a write up about him after the next few days. So many AF bases are contacting us and the funeral home asking if there is anything they can do. The General who gave dad his fight coin ( a huge honor) will be at the funeral, and the pentagon has approved a fly over of the planes dad worked on back when he was 18 years old. Its really going to be something, and dad would be so very pleased and happy to be honored in such a way.
Thankyou for the sweet words and for being a loving true friend.

I don't think it has hit me yet, but I know its just going to take time. At the moment I feel strong, and Happy he is with mom again so I think thats where I am at. I have a feeling I will not be as strong tonight when I see him in his uniform, and again when they do the flyover, but I will keep it in my mind he is happy and enjoying all the attition he is getting. LOL. Dad loved attition and making people smile and laugh. My son in law is a dept. sheriff, and the whole crew is coming tonght to give him support, thats so wonderful.The Air Force is giving all of us the support we could possibly need, and that means so much. I also feel a lot of love and support from all of my deviantart family here and maybe thats why I am feeling so strong. Love to you and all.

You'll cry tonight for sure when you see him, but that love you have for him will carry you through just fine. Hold tight to your beliefs during the long nights when you are alone with your thoughts and memories. He IS happy where he is, and the only one suffering now is you. Take care. xoxoxoxoxo
