My Dad loved the military, his dogs and his Hawaiian shirts.
I stumbled across a fb group that sends pre-owned Hawaiian shirts
to our soldiers overseas to lighten the mood and lift the spirits of
those men/women in harm's way.
I'm sending all he had...I think he would be pleased.

Don & I shared a love for a good joke ever since being a neighbor in Irving. With Braniff, Piedmont. & USAir we had many opportunities for conversations about commuting,flying, helicopters, and our loss of pension. He was a great friend and a support in our many challenges in life. I will miss him. Shirley. our condolences to you and your family. With love, Bill & Treva Seals
