This is a photo of my daughter that I took at Arlington National Cemetery in 1989. I wrote the message on the back of the phofo and for by birthday a couple of years ago, she had this photo enlarged and had the message written on the front of it. Jeanie is now 23-years-old. It touched her then as it does today.
