In honor of my Grandfather

"Miss me a little--but not too long,
and not with your head bowed low,
Remember the love that we once shared,
miss me--but let me go"

At the funeral service of my grandpa, these words were sung by one of his friends. What a wonderful verse and yet the most powerful, for me, was at the very end when a group of fellow Veterans stood. The last man to speak turned to our family and said "We promise you, the deeds and life of Melvin will NOT be forgotten."
Papa, you will not be forgotten.The love of your country, the devotion to your family and the dedication to your faith is an amazing legacy. I will be forever proud to call myself your granddaughter.
