A Tribute

February 22, 1932 - August 25, 2009

We have spent the afternoon saying goodbye to a face that almost every american would recognize. As we watched the television reports of this great man being laid to rest I was touched by the many people who stood in the heat of the day to wave one last goodbye as he was driven by to his last resting place at Arlington Cem. It doesn't matter what your politics are, or if you agreed or disagreed with his opinions or some of the decisions he made in his life, you still have to agree that he was a major part of our history. The days of "Camelot" have long passed us by, but for those of us that are old enough to remember, the dream still lives on.

I googled the above picture, and could not find who to give the credits to for it, but the words and feelings expressed are mine. I just wanted, in some small way, to pay my tributes to this man and his family.
