Gone, but certainly not forgotten

Friday marked the annual Air Force Academy memorial ceremony. Dad's name was - of course - on that list.

So here's to you, Daddy, and all other fallen cadets.

I miss him intensely. It's been very hard to cope with the grief at times.

Fortunately, Mom and Mike and I have a great support system.

Here's a clip of the service, in which each deceased alum's name is read, with a cadet from his or her squadron responding, "Absent, sir!"

"absent, sir" is really heartbreaking. im sorry about your dad, but I am glad he is getting paid the proper respect
