When asked did you ever shoot anybody Grandpa?
"Well hell yes they were gonna shoot me"
And he was bigger than
"If I could only be ½ the Man he was, Id be doing great"

I will never forget when our friend Diep made Vietnamese pancakes.
I was hoping for syrup for dinner, but I was sorely surprised (these "pancakes"
had shrimp, bean sprouts, and fish sauce - I was three at the time). I tried
to be a sport about it, but Grampo jumped right up and made me some flapjacks.
That was my 'Po - always spoiling me! I will be your girl forever and always,
Grampo Carrothead. Your Pixie loves you.

It means a lot to our family that Jack made
many new friends during his last year at the Los Angeles VA and at Greenhaven.
We are so thankful for their angel -like presence in his and our lives.

Jack, I thank the Good Lord for you. I will allways remember
you as an angel in my heart. The day you wore your Airborne cap was the
day I received relief from God. I know God answers prayers in mysterious
ways and trust me - He answered my prayers through you!
P.S. Never met a sweet family like yours before.
There is a man I know and love, a man who is a warrior.
He is a man who is proud and true. He is Geronimo's Grandson.
His love for life comes from deep inside, as does his love of friends and family.
His love comes from his eternal soul, so pure, so proud, so full of compassion.
The rhythmic beat, so hypnotic, so strong, beats in unison throughout all time.
A warrior's heart, a gentle soul passed down through the generations. It is the love of a warrior's heart and the soul of Geronimo's Grandson.
The rumble of his heart so strong echoes the beat of the warrior's drum.
It is the rhythm which reflects life's pulse.
The reflection of its heart's content.
The heart, the beat of the warrior's drum.
The rhythm of Geronimo's Grandson.
In Loving Memory
