Proud

I never got the chance to meet you, but my mother Patty told me what a great man you were and how your death had hit her as hard as a death can hit anyone. I could tell she loved you. I also know this is true because, 10 years to the day of your death. November 16th, 1975 she gave birth to me. Because of her love and respect of you, she named me after you. I have lived my life proud to have your name. Proud of my birthdate. The number 16 is a very significant presence in mine and my family's life. I like to think that this began with you. Rip.
Love,
John Joseph Veeck
