Dad served during World War II,
he fought for Liberation in the
European Theater of Operations,
Panama Canal, and the Korean War.
he was wounded in battle.
Hostile gunfire pierced his leg,
and he received "The Purple Heart."
When dad went to meet the Lord,
He did not have a military funeral.
So I am writing this in my Dad's honor.

When You Reach The End Of Your Journey

You've crossed the distant sea
your spirit travels on,
through the veil of silence
beyond the break of dawn.

You left us here to labor
and wait our journey's time.
Dad, do you know
the mountain we must climb?

Take God's hand, go with Him dad.
you'll never walk alone.
Follow Him into the Light,
He'll guide you safely home.

When we reach our journey's end
we'll depart no more.
We'll meet you at the Golden Gate
upon that distant shore.



We love you, Dad
from your loving family,
Mom,
Sandy, Blanche,
Kathy, Linda, and Mike.
