  • In remembrance of a distant cousin

    I am your third cousin and was just a youngster of 11 when you passed away. I do vaguely recall attending your funeral and visiting your parents and feeling so sad for their loss (we always called them our aunt & uncle even though the relationship was that your Dad was cousin and close friend to my Grandpa Ellison). But I was at that age where the war in Vietnam did not seem to "affect" me; at the age where selfish worries about school and cool clothes were of the utmost importance. Today, with a son-in-law serving in the Marines, and being much wiser about life, I realize what a sacrifice it was for so many young people to serve our country during that time. And you gave the ultimate sacrifice. Yesterday I went to the cemetery with your niece Bonna and she put a fresh USMC flag on your headstone and she put lovely hand-made wreaths on the graves of your parents and her parents. It is with many years being overdue that I say thank you for your serving our country.
