Vesta “Lee” LaRue Comment

  1. It is very difficult to define what a Patriot is, where they come from, how the grew into the person they became. All we know for sure is they all loved their country and have sacrificed more then anyone will even know or understand. The best we can hope for is to have met them, listened to their stories, and found the slightest hint into who they really were. Each one of them has a story and all of the stories are different. All we know for sure is God has blessed us with their presence and we are all the better for them.

    God Bless this PATRIOT.

    Mr. & Mrs. Wonderful
