  • I think of you all the time Granddad, as kid's we had no idea of what you had been through, but knowing what we know now, well I have such complete admiration for you and everyone like you, thank you for paving the way for our great little country to become what it is today, let's hope and pray we can all keep it that way. I wore your medals with pride on the 25th of April 2015. Thank you Granddad all my love your Grandson Bryon.
