Daddy, Thank you for the twenty years you served in the air force. Each place we lived has provided me with special memories that I have carried with me for a lifetime. You and Mom provided us kids with a love and pride in you and our country. Mom, you would be thrilled to learn that all five of your great-grandkids know "Your A Grand Old Flag". Love you and miss you both. Ann
