Love your Baby Girl...

Dearest Daddy, I miss you everyday and am so proud of you. I have more pics to post. You were born in Texas. You enlisted into the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 17. You were stationed in Hawai'i and met Mom. She worked at Pearl Harbor. You were an Expert Rifleman and Expert with Handguns/Pistols. After re-locating to Norwalk, CA. You had returned from your 2nd Tour in Vietnam. They called you up for 3rd Tour in Vietnam. You said to Mom, "I can't leave my boys!" You were 26 years old and your boys were 19 & 20. You were KIA in Vietnam. You are blessed with a loving wife, 7 children (6 boys, 1 girl), a brother (brought home immediately from Vietnam), sisters and your Mother and Father. In your belongings there was a picture of your Baby Girl, a small Blessed Mother card with prayer, Rosary beads, a picture of Mom. I remember the Services at Cabrillo National Cemetery in San Diego. Mom chose it because it reminded her of Hawai'i. I visit you at least once, usually twice a year! I have the small picture of me that you carried with you. I was so young when you were killed. I hope that you held me a lot. I dream of it often, and I know that you're always watching over us! All the boys are fine. I keep in touch, and I pray that they're well. You were Awarded The Purple Heart and I know that you loved us but you had a calling to protect our Country! I'm so proud to be your Baby Girl. Gram and Pop lived long lives. They visited your Marker in San Diego as much as possible. You're all together now watching over me and I am grateful and thank God for the many Blessings received daily. I look like you, so I've been told. I miss you everyday and wonder how different life would've been if you came home alive. My Faith tells me that it's his Master Plan. The Baby Girl in me just misses her Daddy. Thank you for serving our Country and it's an honor to be your Baby Girl. Love and Hugs Forever and Always...

Your Baby Girl

Dearest Daddy, I have photos of you and Mom. I know you enlisted at the age of 17. You had completed two tours in Vietnam. When the 3rd Tour called for you, there was no hesitation in your part and you told Mom..."I can't leave my boys!" You were considered an old man as most of your boys were 19 & 20. You gave your life protecting our Country. You left behind a wife, seven children (6 boys and 1 girl), a brother, sisters, and your parents. You were born in Texas. Re-located from Hawaii to Norwalk, CA. I have pictures to help with the Memorial. My baby picture was in your belongings when you were KIA. I remember the Services at Cabrillo National Cemetery in San Diego, CA. Mom chose that location because it reminded her of Hawaii. You were an Expert Rifleman as well as Expert with Firearms Handguns/Pistols. You earned a Purple Heart and Gram & Pop raised you Catholic. I visit your headstone at least once, usually twice a year. I will always miss my Daddy...Love you forever and always your Baby Girl! I pray that you are watching over us as a Marine never does! Thank you Daddy...rest easy!
