    John, I am so sorry you lost your dad. He was exactly one year younger than my dad. I didn’t realize he served 5 campaigns in the war. Wow! Mom was in the hospital with an erratic heart beat that day and I couldn’t leave her, or else I would have been at your service for him. God bless you in the days ahead.
