Daddy,
I miss you and I really never knew you. At my age I find that I miss you more every day. Sometimes I feel like you are in the room with me, so I talk to you. Mom didn't teach me to be rude!!

You have 4 grandchildren, one who looks like you. They are all good kids. You and everyone on that Wall are my heroes. I love you.

Your daughter and only child,
Leslie Jo (little Joey)

Hi, grandfather, this is little Joey's youngest son. I never met you but I feel as if I know you and every day as I look at your flag sitting on our mantle I wonder what you were like.

From your youngest grandson, age 12,
