    A very nice tombstone!

    May Perpetual Light Shine Down Upon Him. R.I.P.

    I’ve alway loved that style of tombstone. I used to live down the street from the Military Cemetery in St. Augustine and would often walk the grounds there. The marble is beautiful and the fomat is clean and simple and very appealing.

    My mom went out to my dad's gravesite for his birthday (yesterday) and took this photo. His tombstone looks better, and they planted sod there, so there's green grass.

    Here's the tombstone of a relative who's buried in Crawford County, Ohio. I was pretty sure he was a y-line relative before, but back on the 4th of January a 110/111 match with a descendant of his came in and confirmed it.

    Today marks exactly one year since my dad passed away. I miss him. It's hard, but that's what life is: hard. I hope to see him again someday.

    I had an M1 Carbine myself, and I'm sorry I sold it. It was a wonderful weapon. Of course, I just used it to shoot empty beer bottles and cans.

    Pretty much the same here. I used mine for target shooting and plinking but eventually sold it and moved onto something else. They were beautiful, light and handy.

    I was blessed to have a father as kind and good as my dad was. Seems to me such a father helped me to believe in God, because he showed me what God the Father is like. My dad meant the world to me.
