♥♥SPECIAL TO MY DAD♥♥
The Vietnam Traveling Wall
Ride With Respect
Patriot Guard and Rolling Thunder furnal escort
My Dad was a member of Rolling Thunder, they would travel with the Vietnam Memorial Wall. Also they would ride with the Patriot Guard. To sheild families from unwelcome guest; while also showing respect for those who protect us all.
My Dad was dedicated to helping the disabled and sick Veterans. Dad would serve food at the VA Hospital Events. My Dad had a heart of gold.
♥- at Dads furnal, the motorcycle riders rode behind the hearse. My Dads best friend Joe Meyers lead the bikers, riding my Dads Harley. It was something to see and wish I had a photo of that. Rolling Thunder did there changing of the guards at his furnal and folded the flag draped on his coffin and proudly handed it to my brother.
A Fathers touch, a Daddy's kiss, a grieving daughter, you're greatly missed-an empty house, an empty chair, a father's love, no longer there. A broken heart, tear filled eye, another soul to fill the sky. Many memories in my mind, some I laugh, some I cry. The times we shared, the laughs we had - things I miss when I think of you Dad. Realizing that's all I have to hold on to, only memories, of what once was you. Missing your laugh, I will never again hear. That is the reality that fills me with so much fear. No more smile on your face, no more warmth of your embrace. The last hug, the last kiss, the last "goodbye" leaves me with one last wish ... To have you Dad, here today, never to leave your daughter this way. A father's touch, a daddy's kiss, a grieving daughter,
YOU'RE GREATLY MISSED!
