Never Forgetten

It was over 35 years ago last month that my family piled into a car in Irwin, PA and made that trip to Valparaiso, IN to pay our last respect to you. I still remember the trip today because of the why we were going and also the weather. The weather on the trip was so bad that at times questioned whether or not we would turn around and go home. We made it and were all very thankful. I was a 15 year old kid who was experiencing the wartime death of his cousin and at the same time hearing daily news report as to why the United States shouldn't have been in Vietnam. You guys who fought in Vietnam were never properly treated. I thank you and all the other servicemen who gave their lives in service of the US. Also, I thank all servicemen who served in Vietnam or any other action while serving the US.

Just a list of things I remember when thinking about you:

You dad, Uncle Jack, scared us half the time.
You mom, Aunt Putsy, the best.
Your sister, Kathi, sucking water with a vacuum.
You sister, Jayne, my kissin cousin.
Visiting Grandma Ekin house in the summer when the Dean boys were in town.
Your family cabin on the Junita River.
The cabin you and your friends, Houkus, built in the woods off of Robins Station Road.
You dad coming to our house as part of poker club.
The little house you lived in it White Oak.
You moving to Valparaiso, IN.

I have never forgotten you and will never. I have visited you several times at the Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC. If there is a life after, I hope to see your there.

Take care.
