Dad – Gratefully, you have finally been released from your earthly confinements and are now flying free above the clouds. But there will always be a part of you in my heart, and I will miss you dearly. I have been honored and proud to be your daughter. Your love for me has always been unconditional, and for that I’m eternally grateful. I will always be your Little Mouse and my memories of you will comfort me in the days and years ahead. Your amazing legacy now lives on through Molly and your new great-grandchild, Evan. I love you, Dad, with all of my heart, and know that I will see you again someday. Till then, fly free and proud! Naval pilots never die; they just soar to greater heights.
All my love,
