  • Hey great uncle, I'm glad that while I was in New Zealand with my Dad that I got to know more about my family history, you may not be someone who I will ever meet personally, but either way you will have and continue to have a unimaginable and profound effect on my attitude towards my family and it's history. We will never meet face to face, but I feel like you are someone who I have known all my life. To one past serviceman to hopefully a future one I thank you for having a great positive effect on my life and my attitudes towards it.
