I am third generation American. My great-grandparents sailed to America and settled in Wisconsin in the early 1880 and became Naturalized Citizens. My wife's family was here to meet them.
I am the second oldest child from a family of eight great children. My mother is a saint with my father not far behind and have been blessed with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
My lovely wife and I were married during the Viet-Nam war in 1969. I had just finished a WestPac cruse in Viet-Nam and was scheduled for another when we decided to get married at Long Beach Naval Station Chapel. We gave everyone a week notice for the wedding then four days after the wedding I was gone for six more months to Viet-Nam. Best decision I ever made, the vote is still out for her. (Never could make up her mind.) She deserves a medal for putting up with me.
Pam and I have a beautiful grandson, two wonderful boys, the very best daughters-in-law's and my faithful dog named Hanz that love us. We now have a kitten named Blue.
That is the sum total of everything worthwhile in my life and I thank God everyday for all His great blessings.
I honor and pray for all who have come before me and ask God to bless those that follow.
Skibbas You are welcome. It always makes me feel good to help out with a photo the requester is unable to take themselves. I have linked Maureen with her parents. Is Joseph Skibba related? I try to find others with the same last name in a cemetery and poor Joseph wasn't even 12.
