Thank all of you for your kind remarks on the original post. They have been a comfort to my extended family and myself.
I'm in South Carolina with his wife and children. The service is Saturday. His wife has chosen having him dressed in his Army blues and a military funeral with honors will be held.
Will return to Colorado next week and will get something up then.
Haven't used this laptop in eleven months - hence the briefness. Again, your understanding of a lack of responses to your comments will be appreciated.
