O CAPTAIN! My Captain! Our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won.
Rest in Peace, Pop. 7/1/1917 - 01/10/2012
Captain in the Army Air Corp WW11
Graduate with a Masters Degree from Duke University
Aeronautical engineer with TWA
An officer, a gentleman, a loving husband, and the best father ever.
Pop passed listening to old time swing(Big Band)music that he loved as I held his hand and lightly laid my head on his chest. He knew I was there with him. When I told him how much I loved him he looked at me, smiled, and said "thank-you." I told him to dance right up that staircase to Heaven where Mom would be waiting for him. I know she will give him heck for taking sooo long to join her. It doesn't get any more peaceful than that. Godspeed Pop.
It's been a bit surreal. My heart is broken. I have lost my hero, my Pop.
Thank-you all for your kind words and support. I'm homeward bound. Suzanne
