GAVE HIS PILOT'S WINGS FOR ANGEL'S WINGs
This is a man who's face I see, who's spirt I carry, whom I love and miss dearly. This is my dad. I was only 3 years old when he died, so I didn't have the honor of growing up with him or getting to know him.  And he missed getting to know me, and the wonderful family he would have been a part of.  My dad was a very patriotic man.  He loved the military, he loved in his country and what it believed in....so much that he die for it. He loved to dance and sing - I've been told he was very good at both.  And although I don't have his gift of dance, I do have his gift of voice.... and when I sing, I always sing to him.  I feel saddess when I think of the things we've missed together, but I find comfort in knowing that he died doing what he adored most.. flying - his passion.  He's left me in the trusted hands of his fellow brothers, the Vietnam Vets....bless them all.  They've taken me into their fold, giving me love and support.  Who could ask for a better family !!!  I love you guys!!!!

I LOVE YOU DAD..........Pam
