Default Laid my dad to rest yesterday.

It was a beautiful day to lay dad to rest. A little breezy, but a nice day. My cousin performed the ceremony (long winded son of a gun!). Had several of his old co-workers there which was nice. The only time I had any real trouble was when the Navy honor guard presented me with the flag. I literally came close to passing out. I was not prepared for that. Honoring my three sisters requests, no pictures were taken. It was a nice day. I would like to thank all of you for the prayers and well wishes during this time. They meant so much to us.

Again, sorry for your loss. I am glad it was a nice service. I still have the American flag they laid over my Dad's casket in 1963.

Man, Randy I know how tuff that is... The thing that always gets me is when they play Taps... That is the most mournful, yet honoring sound I've ever heard. You hang onto that flag and those shell casings... They represent a country that honors your dad's service to our country and should be a source of pride and honor to you. Once again, thanks to your dad for his service... fair winds and clear sailing for him...

TAPS:
Lyrics 3 stanzas

Day is done.
Gone the sun.
From the lakes
From the hills.
From the sky.
All is well.
Safely rest.
God is nigh.

Fading light.
Dims the sight.
And a star..
Gems the sky.
Gleaming bright.
From afar.
Drawing nigh.
Falls the night.

Thanks and praise.
For our days.
Neath the sun
Neath the stars.
Neath the sky
As we go.
This we know.
God is nigh

Prayers for you and your family. Buried my father last year, he was in Coast Guard. Like SS said above when they played taps it was pretty emotional.

Thank you sir. Yes, when TAPS started is when I had the most trouble.
