I will try again to comment. That is so beautiful what you did in memory of my dad. He was a beloved son, husband, father, brother and friend. We were all proud of his accomplishments as an aronautical engineer, his career was multifacited, but most of all we were all proud of all that he did for his children and grandchildren. He took us places we would probably never have seen: the sand dunes of Odessa, Texas; the giant redwoods; camping in Yosemite; Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm; Lake Tahoe, San Francisco Candlestick Park baseball games; food in San Francisco China Town; taught us to ride our bikes and too many other things to count. Yes we are proud that he was our dad and will miss him and look forward to seeing him in heaven where joy will never end, there will be no more death or crying, no more pain, no more sin. We love you dad!
