Chief Petty Officer

I always looked for you in a room when I was a child, your presence made any place a home. I still catch myself looking for you.

You loved to garden because you found joy in nurturing new life, you loved the sea because it reminded you of God and you fought for your country because you have always loved her.

You were the bravest and kindest man I will ever know and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.

I love you Dad.
