Thank You

Dear Cpl Francis Muraco, Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I researched you on your 53rd anniversary, sad. Saying thank you isn't enough, but it is from the heart. It is the 5th Day of Christmas, Merry Christmas. Time passes quickly. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness, especially now. Rest in peace with the angels.

My Brother

Butchie: It's been 50 years that you left us and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you. I miss you so much and wish you were here to share all of our memories with Gene (my husband), Christine & Michelle (your nieces). I talk about you all the time to keep your memory alive. You would be so proud of them and their children Tyler, Ashley and Olivia. Muraco School had their usual Memorial Day assembly this year in celebration of 50 years with Marine honor guard, family & friends. Billy Shields give a speech to honor you. He has never forgotten you and is with us every Memorial Day. I had your Marine dress blues framed with all of your medals/badges and presented them to Muraco School to add to the wall upon entering the school. They have kept your memory alive as a Marine, person, veteran, and all of the children at Muraco know about Francis J. Muraco. Mom & Dad have joined you in heaven. Rest in peace. Love you to the moon and back.
