To my beloved Uncle..

My dearest Uncle Bill, your big sister Barbara (my beautiful Aunt), asked me tonight if I’d be willing to speak on behalf of our family at your memorial service, which will be held on 7 November at Santa Clara High School. I told her I would be honored. Although you and I never met, you died a year before I was born, your memory has remained a huge part of my life. My mom, your baby sister Betty, spoke of you often, and your mom, our loving Mom Burke, had your pictures and flag front and center on display in the living room. So no matter the occasion...Christmas, Easter, a birthday...you were always remembered, and heartbreakingly missed. Your mom was the pillar of our family; the glue that kept everyone together, and everyone smiling, but as strong as she was, she was still a mom who lived every parent’s worst nightmare. So when I speak on the 7th, I pray that my words not only honor you and your sacrifice, but that they also honor every tear that I saw Mom Burke shed in private, at every family gathering. She, as did the rest of your family and friends, missed you horribly. You made the ultimate sacrifice Uncle Bill, and for that our family, as well as the entire country, owes you, and every other soldier that did not make it home, a debt of gratitude. Thank you, and we love you. Always.
