Tomorrow around noon. Dan will have his Military service at Jacksonville National Cemetery. If you get a chance and are so prone, lift a glass in that direction. I will be delivering the Eulogy and hoping I get through it without losing it.Sad

God bless Dan and I am sure you'll do well with the eulogy Howard. A few chokes and tears are expected.

The service was just done so well. Full Military honors. Navy Chaplin, flag folders and a 3 Man rifle salute, firing 3 times each. The Jacksonville National Cemetery is just beautiful. Dan's ashes rest in a wall chamber.

I did get through the Eulogy. Admittedly a few chokes and cracking of the voice.

In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we spent so many trips together, 2 of our favorite places had a drink of his Black Rum sitting on the Bar all day along with his picture. One of the places also acts as the local VFW post.

I have been looking at digital pictures of our times in Ft. Pierce. Those days and all of you that were there, will be precious memories.
