R.I.P. Uncle Dennis

I got back from my Uncle Denny's funeral late last night. Dennis was a Navy Seal who served on the U.S.S. Kittyhawk during the Vietnam war. Bronze Star, Purple Heart, etc., etc. Seeing the Navy honor guard do their flag ceremony at the gravesite was touching. Also very deja vu--it seems like yesterday when the Army did the same thing at my brother Bill's funeral. Bill was 23 and still in the Army when he died. Uncle Denny got through all that combat alive, but his heart gave out at age 65. Well, we all have to go sometime.
