I am my father’s daughter…I believe that now more than ever before…he was there with me and for me from the very beginning.

On September 29, 2014 we had a military burial service for my dad at the Northern California Veteran’s Cemetery in Igo, California. It is a beautiful place. My mom and dad had visited there a few months before he passed away, and they thought it was a wonderful cemetery.

My daughter Rachel took these photos there in January 2015, nearly four months after his burial. For those who may not know, my dad had one tattoo on his upper left bicep from his days in the Air Force during the Korean War. If I remember correctly, he got it in Okinawa, Japan. It is an eagle, similar to the one on his stone.
