Memories Timeline


  1. First and foremost thank you sir for your service. I did not have the pleasure of meeting you but I work with your grandson. I can see your awesomeness through him. To the Douglas family please take comfort in knowing that he is now with his Heavenly Father and no longer sick or afflicted. He was called home by the choir of Angels singing. He is walking side by side with those who have gone before him. No words can ease your pain but allow me to say this. It is because of men like him that  a few of my family was able to flee to the US during WWII. Her served his country with pride and honor. Your tour of duty is done sir. We shall take the watch now. **slow salute**
