To my wonderful husband...

To my wonderful husband, the love of my life,
How blessed I have been to have been your wife.
We "grew up" together (because I was so young),
But if we could do it over, we wouldn't wait so long.
The Lord blessed our marriage with three little boys.
Each Christmas was a challenge to figure out their toys.
Our years in the Navy were blessings for all . . .
New places, new friends to later recall.
Then each son found their new love and moved out on their own.
We were always so thrilled when they found their way home.
You would be so proud of the men they are now.
Your example as a Dad was to "learn and know how."
You told them to take care of me each time you had to leave.
They are doing a great job so far - this you can believe!
My desire to grow old with you was not in God's plan,
But some day we'll be together in the perfect Promised Land.
Some days are so lonely - I miss your tender touch.
But I'm thankful for the years we had.  I love you so much!!!

Happy 86th birthday, my love.

P.S.  Thank you again for loving me.  When I used to tell you that,
        your immediate reply would be, "It's been my pleasure!"   I
        still believe you meant exactly that.

Found another one...

Shared by R T Grantham on December 8, 2014

On a whim, tried a different search - for Combat Camera Group Atlantic Fleet - and found the following site dedicated to the National Association of Naval Photography.  Why anyone would think pictures of belly-buttons are interesting enough to create a national association for them I'll never know, but to each their own (and to any of the honored members of this association who might happen to view this page, if you knew my Dad, you'd know he'd expect a wise-acre crack from me, so categorically no disrespect intended, we're part of your extended family too).

At least Dad (and Mom by extension) has a lifetime membership thereto, so honor them in turn we shall...  All hail the members of NANP!  And our deepest appreciation for you wading into the hells of combat with nothing but a mud-covered Nikon and a sack of prayers.  Generations to come are in your debt for recording the truth and returning it to the light of scrutiny.  Thank you for your service to humanity, I know my father was proud to be associated with you.
