My dad died and the funeral was yesterday. He was 88.
The funeral and showing the day before was special in many ways.
He was a marine that served 2 terms, 18 years. He had a military burial. Folding of the flag (13X) presented to my brothers wife.
It was a sunny warm day and the shots of 3 rounds will always be remembered. We saluted him for the last time.
My 14 year old (girl) 2nd cousin, sang amazing grace (it was amazing)
My 16 old son did a reading.
The mass was at a Lutheran church (very old) high a top a hill and the cemetery was right there. There staff and pastor are special!!
I was able to see people I have not seen in years. One was my dads ex wife and my mom for 17 years.
Marines have a special bond, one came over from another showing as he saw my Dads marine flag and paid respect to him. He actually served with Billy B in Iraq (small world they say)
The pastor gave his 10 meanings of hoorah!!
Sepher Fi Dad!!
