Patch #255 North Pool
Our family lost a husband, a father, a grandfather, a brother, an uncle ... but above all, we lost days, weeks, months, and years with a dear, wise man. A man whose eyes reflected the laughter in his words. A man who always counseled, "Enjoy the ride."
Today the New York Times editorial board wrote a paean to the memorial site, saying in part ...
I have not yet been there, but today I will stitch my own path of remembrance ... we will never forget.
