On July 7, 2001 at 10:00am on a sunny summer day, my Fathers guardian angel came to him, cradled him in his arms, and carried him to stand before God. It was a great day for my Dad and a sad one for his family. He served his country during the Korean war and then served his family the rest of his life. He taught me about honor, love and courage. He fought his last battle against cancer most valiantly, but the enemy was overwelming. He taught me how to shoot and appreciate my freedom. He taught me the value of friends and hard work. I love my Dad and I will miss him. The world is less, now that he is gone.

As the Master said, [red][b]'Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's House are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.'[/b][/red] As my Mother lay dying of cancer on Sept. 7, 1993, I comforted both her and myself with this and the following verses fron Chapter 14 of the Gospel of John. You will see your Father again one day, as we will all see our departed loved ones who are faithful unto the End. May the Lord cause His light to shine upon your family in this hour of loss, He has promised, after all, to wipe away every tear. Eric The(AndHeDoesKeepHisPromises)Hun[>]:)]

I am sorry for your loss. But console yourself that he lives on in you. How you live your life is his legacy. AS Captain Miller said to Private Ryan - "Earn this." I KNOW you will. Peace, and may God bless you.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I do not know where mine is? He disappeared about 15 years ago with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s (not two of his buddies). Last we knew he was in the system down in the San Jose, CA area. My prayers are with you...

My sympathies. My dad this past January too. The torch is passed to a new generation of people. So go forward and make your dad proud.

You and your family has my deepest sympathies. Sit back and remember him in his glory and he will live with you forever.

Thank you very much. It is an honor to be one of your brothers in arms. As I sit here, most of my entire family is in the house. We are filled with happiness and sorrow. We will lay him to rest tomorrow. Then in true polish tradition, we will toast him and drink to his health. ALOT! After all, In heaven there is no beer. Thats why we drink it here. Thanks guys.
