Dear Dad, Happy Veterans Day🇺🇸 You served your country honorably as a Navy man. ⚓
On October 27th 04:45 you passed away.🙏 I was so lucky to be with you the night before. Thank you for being there for me always. We all miss you so much. I can't stop crying. Your funeral was beautiful though. So many friends, family and students were there to wish you love and peace. The American Legion in St Peter played TAPS for you. I was never prouder. The man, father, son, brother, husband, uncle, grandfather and greatgrandfather. 🙏
I cannot count the times your wise , graceful and gentle counsel saved me and guided me.
Rest in peace Aaron Bernard Everett. But I know that I will be ok because you were mine and I am yours forever. 🙏
Thank you to @gustavusadolphuscollege for the flag down at half mast for my Dad. He so loved the college and his students. His ashes rest at the Chapel Memorial Gardens at Gustavus where the young students will walk by every day. He can keep an eye on them.
